Zeversolar Inverter Review
Finally the 4 and 5kw Zeversolar ZEVERLUTION inverters have arrived in Australia!
We have been waiting for these as they are the first 5kw inverter made after the German company, SMA’s takeover a few years ago. The new 5kw Zeverlutions include WI-fi as standard, can upgrade to a 10 year warranty for just a further $150 and because they are rated at 5000 watts we are able to put 6.5kw of panels into them!
99.25% owned by SMA… Too good!
How to Set WI-fi monitoring up for Zeversolar inverter?
Here we have uploaded the manuals from Zeversolar to help you understand how to connect your Zeversolar inverter via wi-fi using your Iphone.
Queensland Solar and Lighting has been using Zeversolar inverters with fantastic results for over 6 months now, after we gave our former Chinese inverter – JFY inverters a flick, that we decided to write a Zeversolar inverter review.
Let me introduce Zeversolar inverters by suggesting that they are a ‘cheaper solar inverter alternative to a European inverter – namely the German SMA Inverter, or Austrian Fronius inverter. Nevermind the Italian made ABB Aurora inverter – Nearly any inverter sold is easily better than that Italian dog box, hands down.
Zeversolar – Best Quality at Best Price
ZeverSolar inverters are for those customers who don’t mind what country the Solar inverters are made in, as Zeversolar inverters are Made in China. But most importantly, Zeversolar inverters are for those who want piece of mind knowing they are getting a fantastic inverter with an even more impressive warranty behind the product. This is Zeversolar’s strength. You see, unlike the majority of Chinese solar inverters sold in Australia, Zeversolar actually has an Office and Representation here. Sure, that alone doesn’t mean much as horrendous inverter competitors such as ABB and JFY do too, but what sets Zeversolar inverters apart from the rest is the fact that ‘Zeversolar is part of the SMA Group’ and if you don’t know who and what SMA (a German company) are in the solar industry, it’s worth more than your while to check them out. SMA are the Ducks Nuts or Bees Knees of the solar game. SMA offer the best inverter on the market, the SMA SunnyBoy, but it comes at a price, over $1000 more in price than the Zeversolar – put simply, SMA’s Chinese inverter alternative.
Zeversolar inverters are not an SMA Product. They simply are owned by SMA. If you are familiar with the Australian car market back in the 90’s… remember Daewoo’s, cheap Korean cars, yet not bad, and excellent warranty service. They were not a Holden, but all part of the General Motors group, so your warranty ultimately lied with General Motors. Daewoo actually now go by the name of GM Korea. What GM did to customers in Australia who purchased Daewoo’s at their local Holden dealership, for those who opted for a cheaper Daewoo Sportswagon over the VT commodore wagon, was take the risk out of Daewoo potentially closing the doors while in Warranty period for their customers. Just like SMA operates with Zeversolar. Put simply, there has to be no more SMA, for there to be no more Zeversolar. A Daewoo wasn’t a Commodore, but it was a car, and a Zeversolar isn’t a German Made SMA SunnyBoy, but it is a solar inverter.
SMA Takeover of Zeversolar
Zeversolar were once named Eversolar, this was earlier on, before the mighty German SMA solar company bought into them in 2012, as SMA were losing many solar customers to those in the market looking to install solar onto their houses and using good ‘bang for buck’ Chinese solar components.
In the beginning Zeversolar was only 70’% owned by SMA, nowadays they ramped up ownership to 99.25%. Who knows, maybe preparing to Manufacture SMA Sunnyboy’s in China in the near future? 2017 answer, YES! SMA 5kw inverters are now made in China!
ZeverSolar now has a new inverter range out, THE ZEVERLUTION S, and it does seem very impressive. Only available for 1.5kw, 2kw and 3kw at the moment, with the bigger inverters to come out later in 2016. These inverters are keeping up with the latest in solar inverter technology offered by reputable competitors around the globe. With the inclusion of built in wi-fi connection, and 5 year standard warranties upgradeable to 10 years at the price that the Zeversolars are sold for, with the warranty that is provided clearly make the Zeversolar inverter a personal favourite of mine.
