Fronius Solar Inverters – Now With Amazing WiFi Monitoring.

At Greenlife Solar, after years of careful monitoring and research, we have recently decided to Austrian-made ‘Fronius’ Solar Inverters to our product range – and we couldn’t be happier!

The new range of Fronius solar inverters is, frankly, amazing. Not only do Fronius make some of the very best solar inverters in the world (and have done for 20 years now) – they have also released a new range of inverters called the ‘Primo’, which not only come with a 10 year warranty as standard, they also come with wireless WiFi system monitoring, which allows you to follow your solar production on any smartphone, tablet or computer. Tracking your solar production is not only about seeing how much free power your new system is making (especially this time of the year when the days are getting longer!) but it’s also very practical – it allows you to observe the times of day that your system produces the most free power, so that you can use your power when your solar system is producing the most energy. It also allows you to make sure that everything is operating as it should be.

The Fronius monitoring takes the form of either an free ‘SolarWeb’ app (used for smartphone or tablets) or a website login that gives you more detailed information. You can see your real-time system output figures, as well as detailed reports – such as week-by-week or month-by-month totals.

With the Fronius 'SolarWeb' you can monitor your solar production via your smartphone or tablet.

The Fronius ‘SolarWeb’ app allows you to see a snapshot of your solar system performance, no matter where you are.

Fronius also have a ‘smart meter’ option (for an extra $300 – $400) which allows you to not only see all of your solar production, but also your household consumption, all in real time.

This means that at any given moment, you can see how much power your solar system is producing, as well as exactly how much of that is being consumed by your house, and/or fed back to the grid. With the sunny weather we’ve had in Adelaide recently, we’ve seen a few of our new solar households draw no power from the grid at all for up to 10 hours at a time, as well as feeding extra power back to the grid as well.

It’s all part of designing a smarter, more energy efficient household – and saving thousands of dollars per year in the process.
