Performance.

Performance in more ways than just efficiency alone. How does a solar inverter perform within its intended environment and in adverse conditions? The key specifications not often at first thought.

Performance Overall: Derived from the industries best specifications in each Solar Review inverter performance sub-category, the side by side combined average for Fronius Primo vs Huawei SUN2000L is as follows:

Fronius

Primo
  • 97% European efficiency.
  • Temperature range of -40°C.
  • Temperature range of +55°C.

  • Temperature derating of 50°C.
  • Weighs 10kg.
  • Noise emission of 25 dB (A).

Guarantee.

Manufacturer guarantees are interesting when selecting an inverter technology. More commonly is a complimentary extension to base guarantee options in recent years. As guarantee obligations can often be shielded by installer incompetence, should a manufacturer define an adequately trained installer network with a complimentary warranty extension (added end-user benefit), such guarantee has been considered as a base warranty more likely of adhering manufacturer installation specifications.

Important: A manufacturers obligations under guarantee will be obsolete if the inverter is not installed to manufacturer specifications. Use an authorised installer.

Guarantee Overall: Derived from the industries greatest base guarantees in each Solar Review inverter guarantee sub-category, the side by side combined average for Fronius Primo vs Huawei SUN2000L is as follows:

Fronius

Primo
  • 5-year parts warranty.
  • 5-year labour warranty.
  • Authorised installer network with additional end-user benefits.

Huawei

SUN2000L
  • 10-year parts warranty.
  • 10-year labour warranty.
  • No or (not identifiable) authorised installer network.

Software.

In a modern world, software is how you interact with your self generated power supply. More than just a monitoring portal, inverter software is evolving to become the entire energy management protocol as the new standard.

Software Overall: Derived from the industries most feature-rich user experience in each Solar Review software category, the side by side combined average for Fronius Primo vs Huawei SUN2000L is as follows:

Fronius

Primo
  • Fronius Solar.web
  • iOS & Android app.
  • Alerts & fault diagnosis.

Huawei

SUN2000L
  • Hauwei FusionHome.
  • iOS & Android app.
  • Alerts & fault diagnosis.

Affordability.

All well and good having the greatest technology, but what if that technology is simply out of reach for most? Adversely, the cheapest product may lack essential technology requirements expected by many end-users. Put price into perspective. Affordability is where price and technology come together to help determine value. 

Affordability Overall: Derived from the comparative industry price points, inverter affordability is a combination of technology for price, the side by side combined average for Fronius Primo vs Huawei SUN2000L is as follows:  

Fronius
