We did a job a couple of weeks ago using a Solar Edge 3500. It's generating as expected but may be having an unexpected side-effect....

Customer has sent the following email:

"I was wondering whether the inverter, or any other part of the system might generate interference with electrical equipment ? We keep having periods of time where our internet connection keeps dropping in and out; needless to say its been alright for the last several hours. I guess its probably the phone line or the router."

Anyone got any experience of PV systems upsetting wireless broadband?

I dont think it will be the solar edge equipment , as I never had this problem I have installed many solar edge systems now .

it could be your power point plug tops

Need more info' to comment.......................

ie. are they are merely using a std ROUTER/MODEM plugged into the phoneline and using std wifi (b/g or n) connection or are they using wifi extenders or mains power through adapters in certain parts of the house ??

Customer has not had any internet problems recently and has decided it was nothing to do with his PV system.

I loose my ITV telly channels if it rains since the PV install, as the aerial is in the loft sat behind the panels.
I could faff about installing a new aerial outdoors, but I have found a signal booster was all it needed.
Im going to install a 3 way one in the loft and feed all the tellys from one boosted source.

@MicraShed

That's quite probable, and indeed highly probable as the solar pv panels will act as a faraday cage and hence screen the signals, the installer should have picked that up during the site survey and advised you accordingly.
