Update: Protecting your solar equipment during storm season.

We have seen an increase in the number of call-outs for inverters that have blown due to power surges resulting from nearby lightning strikes.
It is important to note that no inverter manufacturer will warrant an inverter against any AC fault or AC power surge.
With the cost of a replacement inverter anywhere between $750 and $3000 depending on the size and the brand – replacing a solar inverter can be quite costly.

There are two relatively low cost solutions to protect your investment available:

  1. We can install a 15KA SURGE ARRESTOR on the AC supply line to the inverter.
    o This will protect the INVERTER from a power surge
    o The cost for this device is $190 incl GST – fully installed.
  2. We can install a 65KA SURGE PROTECTION DEVICE on your mains supply line.
    o This will protect your INVERTER + ALL HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES from a power surge
    o The cost for this device is $390 incl GST – fully installed.

If you would like to arrange for the installation of a surge arrestor or surge protection device then please call the office on 6652 2718 or use the quick enquiry box on the right.
