Growatt is a trusted name in the solar industry, the Growatt SPF5000ES model is the latest update from the popular Growatt SPF5000TL HVM-WPV.
With a 2-year warranty, this pure sine-wave inverter has multiple designated communication ports and a built-in MPPT and BMS.
This high voltage inverter allows you to have an increased number of panels in a string which in turn makes installation cheaper as you can use smaller cables. You’ll also need less cabling and fewer disconnectors.
Autonomous Off-Grid Solar Inverter keep the lights on and your bills down with no effort. This inverter knows what to do and when.
Compatible with most AGM and Lithium-ion batteries on the market, this inverter has many years of development making it stable and robust.
If your needs grow so can your inverter, you can connect up to 6 Off-Grid inverters in series to expand.
Connect your Lithium-ion battery directly with this new BMS Port , no need for middleware to communicate with your battery.
Don’t worry about your battery running dry, the ES will still use solar or grid .
Monitor your usage using the WiFi/GPRS and the Android App .

I have a Growatt 5000TL HVM. It seems like it needs a jump start in the morning. The amps idle around 0.6 to 0.8. As soons as I trip eskom and switch it back on, the amps jump to 6.5. 5 x 325watt panels. 4 x 105AH AGM batteries. What can the problem be . My installer isn't very helpfull

It may be that you require more panel power from your array, however it would be best to get any technical advice from a qualified installer
What will happen on a Growatt SPF5000ES when you exceed 5kw for more than 10 minutes while being grid fed?

Hi, if your load exceeds 5kw it can handle twice the rating of the inverter, it will pass-through the grid power. But this is not recommended for any length of time.
If you install this Inverter, would you also require a combiner box for the the PV array?
QIf you install this Inverter, would you also require a combiner box for the the PV array?
Hi, for this particular inverter you won't need one, depending on what panels you have. If you have the same panel size and type for the whole array you won't need one.
Currently, I have a hybrid inverter. Do you have to buy an off-grid inverter to go off-grid, or will the hybrid be fine?

Hi, I am looking to match this inverter with a 16s prismatic cell LiFePo4 battery bank, will this be possible?
Link to inverter: https://solaradvice.co.za/product/growatt-es-5kw-high-voltage-inverter/#
I read the datasheet for this inverter and it mentioned you are only allowed to use LiFePo4 battery bank configuration that Growatt has configured:
"If choosing lithium battery for SPF 3500 ES /SPF 5000 ES, you are allowed to use the lithium battery only which we
have configured. There're two connectors on the lithium battery, RJ45 port of BMS and power cable."

Is this true? Maybe I interpreted read it wrong. Please confirm.

If the battery is 48V it will work but it won't in communication, you can set it to user-defined.

Hi There, at the moment we do not have the 410W panels in stock we can however provide 400W panels. In terms of the battery backup what load are you wanting to run and for how long?
This is going to determine how many batteries you will require.

Is a hybrid (e.g. axpert) the better choice then the growatt hvm-wpv..... Confusing??!!
WiFi is not really a must for me!
.... or can I use 1 wifi Modul while connecting 3-4 inverters or does each growatt needs one?
QIs a hybrid (e.g. axpert) the better choice then the growatt hvm-wpv..... Confusing??!!
Hi There, The master inverter will need the wifi module.
An Axpert is considered an off-grid inverter with an AC input. It cannot mix and blend energies like a hybrid can.
For this, you would need to the Deye range of inverters.
The Growatt would be a better option over the Axpert due to its 5-year warranty and its ability to communicate better with Lithium batteries.
What is the difference to the axpert 5000kva?????
Plan +/- 45x410W panels, 4x6kva lithium storage and thought a hybrid inverter would be the best.

Hi There, The Growatt 5kW and the Axpert are not Hybrid Inverters. You would need to look at the Deye 5kW Inverter as this is a pure Hybrid.
With regards to the panels, you would need to ensure that the correct number of panels are placed on the inverter as per it's specs.

What is the maximum solar panels and lithium batteries I can connect to this inverter.
QWhat is the maximum solar panels and lithium batteries I can connect to this inverter.
AHi, the array can be a maximum of 5500 watts, if you bought 410 watts panels you would be able to have 12 of these (410 w x 12 = 4920 w). Or 16 with 310 watt panels. You can add whatever battery bank you want, this I recommend working out using the calculator as storage can get expensive.
Does this come with the WIFI Monitoring device? If not how much extra ?

Hi, what is the min PV voltage for this system. The user manual revers to not less than battery voltage witch is 48v

AHi Deon, the minimum amount of panels you'd need to have is 3. The MPPT will not kick in until there is at least 120V registering from your PV input.
Hi, I need a 8kva inverter to run my koi dam with all pumps and accessories. Initial costs are too expensive to purchase once off: My question is can a 3kva inverter be purchased? and thereafter a month later ANOTHER 3KVA INVERTER IS PURCHASED AND THEREAFTER ANOTHER 3KVA INVERTER IS PURCHASED. So in total i would have 9 kva inverter to operate the system. Can the inverters be purchased in this way and connected together in due time as funds are provided to afford.the solar system , obviously excluding panels etc

AHi Alan, the 3kW inverters cannot be paralleled, however, the 5kW inverters can. You are more than welcome to purchase one inverter a month and install them as you receive them. Please note that we always recommend having a solar system installed by a qualified electrician.
1. Is it correct that you need a battery and what type would you advice and can you let me know the price please

Hi, it won't mix or blend the energy together like a Hybrid inverter would, I would suggest taking a look at the Deye, Goodwe or Sofar inverter to have that ability, you can view our Hybrid options here.
