Enphase Energy ships 100,000 solar microinverters

Petaluma, Calif., October 6, 2009 — Enphase Energy, a solar microinverter maker, shipped its 100,000th last month, reaching this remarkable milestone just over a year after the product’s launch in July 2008.

Enphase Microinverter Systems convert the DC output of a single solar module into grid compliant AC power.

Enphase systems offer a number of advantages over traditional central inverters including a five to 25 percent increase in energy harvest, increased system reliability and a simpler — and safer — installation.

Enphase also removes design constraints because modules can now be installed in any combination of type, age and location. In addition, a proprietary communication technology is embedded into each microinverter enabling continuous, remote, per-module monitoring to identify any problems quickly and maximize energy production.

One key reason the Enphase Microinverter has such a high adoption rate is due to the simplicity of installation. Installers can train new staff members much more quickly with microinverter technology compared to traditional inverters, enabling them to improve their time-to-productivity.

This benefit, along with others, has convinced many solar installers to use Enphase Microinverters exclusively. To date, Enphase Microinverters have been installed in residential and commercial sites in virtually all 50 U.S. states and Canada, boosting overall solar growth.

Enphase Energy provides solar energy management systems for residential and commercial markets. The company offers a system that includes high-efficiency microinverters, communications and Web-based monitoring and analysis. The systems increase energy harvest, improve system reliability, and simplify design, installation and management.
