PETALUMA, Calif. -- May 16, 2013
Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) announced today its support of Team USC in
the 2013 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, a biennial competition
powered exclusively by the sun. Team USC has received a donation of the
Enphase Microinverter System to compete in the design and construction of a
solar-powered house that brings sustainable living to the public.
The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon challenges 20 collegiate teams
to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective,
energy-efficient and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team
that best blends affordability, consumer appeal and design excellence with
optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. The competition will take
place at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, Calif. from October 3-13,
“Enphase is proud to contribute our products to the next generation of
sustainable engineers, architects and professionals,” said Bill Rossi, Chief
Marketing Officer of Enphase Energy. “Powered by our innovative technology,
Team USC aims to build a solar house that produces as much energy or more than
“We are thrilled to install Enphase microinverters on our 1,000 square foot
house and to learn more about how microinverters can offer more efficiency,
safety and trouble-shooting capabilities to homeowners and design engineers,”
said Christine Tanguay, a student at USC’s School of Architecture and project
manager of Team USC.
Team USC is among four teams from California, the top residential solar market
in North America. The team is a collaboration led by the School of
Architecture (SOA), consisting of students, faculty, and researchers from SOA,
the Viterbi School of Engineering, the Annenberg School for Communication and
Journalism, the School of Cinematic Arts, the Rossier School of Education and
the Marshall School of Business.
