Enphase Energy Enters Australian Solar Market
Market entrance marks company’s sales expansion into Asia Pacific region
PETALUMA, Calif. -- January 24, 2013
Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) today announced the availability of the
Enphase^® Microinverter System to the Australian solar market in February. The
company will showcase its AC-based approach to solar energy systems to
Australian solar professionals at local events beginning February 6th.
“With millions of units shipped, Enphase is bringing the world’s most advanced
microinverter system to the flourishing Australian solar market,” said Paul
Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy. “Leading analysts project Australia to become a
gigawatt plus solar market, and Enphase enters at time when this growing clean
economy is gaining promising momentum.”
Enphase Energy is partnering with RFI Solar to distribute the Enphase
Microinverter System. RFI Solar is a leading distributor of solar PV products
in Australia, serving the solar market for over 30 years. Through the RFI
Solar network, the Enphase product line and accessories will be available
“The RFI team is excited at the opportunity to bring the advanced technology
of Enphase Microinverters to the Australian solar market. The combination of
increased design flexibility, improved safety and panel-level monitoring make
this a great solution for the solar consumer,” said Scott Magee, managing
director of RFI Solar.
The Enphase Microinverter System offers a new approach to the installation,
operations and maintenance of solar energy systems. Enphase Microinverters,
the Envoy Communications Gateway and Enlighten monitoring and analysis
software work together to deliver increased energy harvest and unparalleled
solar system intelligence.
By converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) at the panel
level, microinverters create independent power producers out of every single
panel in a solar array. This dramatically simplifies solar system design and
installation while also eliminating high voltage DC. Enphase’s web-based
Enlighten software comes included with the Enphase Microinverter System and
communicates with each microinverter over the existing power lines. Enlighten
allows remote access to system information from any web-enabled device,
providing installers with increased visibility into the performance of their
installed-base and remote troubleshooting capabilities.
