Has the ARRL been involved at this point? 

 If not, they should be.  Then ARRL can trigger an FCC letter to the 
owner-operator of the device if they cannot get the customer and vendor to 
respond to ARRL.    

If the owner-operator gets the letter, he can take it up again with SolarEdge 
or shut it down to meet Part 15 regulations.

Just got word from SolarEdge that they will not go any further to solve the RFI 
problem being caused by their installation here in New York. 
They've made marginal improvements with chokes and an inverter swap over the 
years, but that's as far as they will go.

We proved that their system caused RFI and even went the extra mile by covering 
the solar panels with tarps during the day to demonstrate how the noise 
disappeared when the panels were not energized by the sun.

SolarEdge concedes that the noise is most likely coming from the panels 
themselves, but they say they don't manufacture the panels so it's not their 

Tesla and SolarEdge claim that they are compliant with FCC rules and are not 
responsible for the RFI emanating from their systems.

After 4 years of battling with this company, SolarEdge has won.
