Although Enphase microinverters are very good there are a few hidden costs that you may not be aware of.

a) If you want panel level monitoring (Free with SolarEdge) then be prepared to pay $300 extra for the privilege.

b) If the owner of the solar power system changes i.e. you sell your house and the new owner wants to continue to monitor the system then you will need to send a US$150 cheque to Enphase in the US and then wait weeks for that to clear. When we first found out about this we thought that can’t be correct but unfortunately it is.

There maybe more hidden costs that we are not aware of but when they come to light we will let you know.
