Fronius Inverter Review
Updated: Jan 21, 2019
Fronius make some of the best inverters in the world. They used to be playing catch up with SMA in terms of industry reputation and quality, but I would argue that they have well and truly caught up in the last 2 years. I would happily have one on my house.
They are also one of the first inverter brands to be named as compatible with the Tesla Powerwall battery system. Their Fronius Symo Hybrid will integrate seamlessly with the Powerwall.
They have really good connectivity and most of their models have "smart grid" features built in that allow you to please even the most fussy electricity network's grid connection rules. Their MPPT efficiency is legendary.
Fronius is a European company established by founder Günter Fronius in Austria in 1945.
The company, over time, grew from being a welding and battery chargers manufacturer, to become one of the most prominent European players in the solar market. Fronius’ solar division has been operating in this field since 1992 and, since then, it has developed a wide series of photovoltaic solutions.
Depending on their needs and specifications, customers will be able to choose among grid-connected inverters (Snap Inverter, Fronius Symo and Fronius Galvo series), string inverters (Fronius IG Plus, Fronius IG TL, and Fronius IG series), and central inverters that are the ideal choice for commercial and industrial solar applications (Fronius Agilo, Fronius Agilo TL, and Fronius CL).
In late 2010, Fronius opened its Australian office. Based in Melbourne, this new division proved extremely important in order to meet the increasing demand for solar products in Australia. Here, the company not only provides customer service and technical assistance, but also offers product demonstrations and training courses.
