Growatt entered the solar inverter market back in 2010 and has grown rapidly to become one of the world’s largest inverters manufacturers. Based in Shenzhen, China, Growatt’s first-generation entry-level solar inverters were known to have some quality and reliability issues, but to their credit, the company backed its product by servicing many of the warranty claims.
Growatt has since released a vast array of updated inverters which have had very good feedback so far, and now offers a wide range of solar and energy storage inverter solutions for residential and commercial applications. Still focused on the entry-level market segment, many of the new models have been available for a little over two years, so they are yet to prove themselves in the long term. Growatt seems keen to improve its position and has established local support centres in many countries offering good service in case of a failure or warranty claim.
