Obviously, these will tend to be biased towards people with bad experiences. But there do seen to be underlying issues.
I am a repeat customer, my original system was installed in 2015.
On a long enough time line all inverters fail!
System 1 - 14 x 250W SunModule SW + Enphase ME215 microinverters (July 2015)
System 2 - 20 x 330W Jinko Panels + Enphase IQ7+ microinverters (Jan 2022) + Givenergy AC Coupled inverter + 2 * 8.2KWh Battery (May 2022) + Mitsubishi 7.1 KW and 2* Daikin 2.5 KW A2A Heat Pump
I have panels on 3 different orientations and have 2 different pitches on one orientation. There really was no other option for me.
Install 2: Sept 19, 600W SSE
Solax 6.3kWh battery
Same people have come in cheaper with the Solis though too.
Unfortunately they are £1k more on the Tesla battery, so all levels out.
It's all one roof, facing same direction with minimal shading. So minimal benefit in that respect. The Enphase peddler mentioned they are better in winter, as the Solis might not even "kick in"
