    Mike90250 Can you please elaborate? Its really hard to keep up with every discussion on these boards.... Is there something about the SE7600 I should know about ? is the fan unbalanced inside the Inverter ? Its not too late for me to change, I signed the contract, but I'm sure if I throw more $$ at them, they would gladly change out the inverter...
    The system I signed for is:

    28 Panasonic VBHN330SA16 modules
    1 Solaredge SE7600-USS2 Inverter*
    28 Solaredge P400 optmizers
    25 year extended warranty on SE7600-US inverter
    IronRidge racking
    Critter Guard surrounding arrays <discourage unwanted critters, turkey, raccoons, bats, from roosting under roof array>
    Consumption monitoring kit SE-MTTR240-2-200-S1

    $29,500 Gross <in NorCal for all items listed above; wasn't the cheapest $/w, but i didn't want Can Solar up there due to pushy salesman>
    <Fingers crossed on the installer, did as much diligence as one can do...Went with Pani because of the 25Y PV warranty, praying for good lamination on each panel>

    I've done what I could to meet J.P.M.'s requirement of lowering consumption, All new: LEDs, attic/wall insulation, efficient HVAC, windows, wash/dryer, whole house fan, etc... already on TOU plan even before PV... so please don't be upset with me putting in such a large PV system, we had a week of triple digit temperatures for the entire week, we were melting... $380 to PG&E in july just for electric - shoot me now...

      I think Mike was just kidding- 25db corresponds to x2 as loud as "Whisper, rustling leaves" and about half as loud as "Quiet rural area" which I think is very quiet overall. Unbalanced fan would create much louder noise which would be subject for warranty repair.

        Are you sure about that being an SE7600-USS2 ? that would be the StorEdge bimodal inverter.
        It will work without a battery but costs more than the SE7600A-US

          Yes, I wanted the USS2 for future potential battery installation...

            I wrote unbalanced fan in Comic Sans font, which is noted for irony.
