We had a solar electrician visit on Sunday to check out our inverter issue with our Solar PV system.
He tested the voltage from the array, which was fine and the grid voltage which was also fine. So at least there is nothing wrong with the panels and wiring.
It looks like the main controller within the inverter itself is faulty. If it’s not under warranty, may cost a bit if they can even get the part for such an old model.
Also, he mentioned that if they cannot find the part it needs, then the inverter will have to be replaced. This means I may have to foot the cost of a new inverter as well as rewiring and new isolation switches as well because the electrical regulations have changed since I got the system installed.
Pretty ordinary news all round. Just waiting for news back from the installer to see what our options are. I will update you know when I know more.
So much fun (not), and we have gone back into energy efficiency mode here at home to save more on our power bill. Fingers crossed that we can get the solar PV back up and running soon.
