Q: Is my inverter covered under warranty?

A: To find out if your inverter is covered under warranty, first establish when the warranty period began. This is generally the date the system was installed. The most common inverter warranty period we see is 5 years; however we recommend checking your paperwork as extended warranties are not uncommon and some manufacturers offer up to 10 years – we can assist you with the manufacturer warranty claim process.

 

Q: I can’t find my paperwork and the solar retailer I purchased the system from has gone out of business.

A: Do not worry. This information is available from your local electricity generator, which is Energex in South East Queensland, Ergon in North and regional Queensland and Essential energy for Northern New South Wales.

 

Q: My inverter is under warranty but the inverter manufacturer is out of business.

A: It looks like your options are limited and your inverter needs repairing or possibly replacing.
