PETALUMA, Calif. -- October 15, 2013

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a national leader in solar energy
technology, today announced the La‘a Kea Foundation on Maui will receive a
$25,000 solar energy system as the winner of the company’s Mahalo Hawaii
Facebook contest.

La‘a Kea is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing meaningful work
opportunities and residential options for adults with autism and intellectual
disabilities on its 12-acre organic farm in Upper Paia on the slopes of
Haleakala. The Mahalo Hawaii video contest celebrates nearing Enphase’s
25,000th system installation in Hawaii by awarding a $25,000 solar energy
system to a non-profit with the most votes for their video.

Exclusively for Hawaii, entries highlighted 16 different nonprofit
organizations hoping to add the benefits of solar to their business. With more
than 38,000 votes cast, the Enphase Facebook giveaway attracted intense
competition and highlighted the demand for solar in the nation’s highest
priced energy state.

“We are so very pleased to be able to help La‘a Kea in its mission to improve
the lives of those participating in this wonderful program. This system allows
La‘a Kea to use a renewable energy source and reduce their energy costs,” said
Bill Rossi, CMO for Enphase. “Having almost reached 25,000 installations
across Hawaii is a great testament to Hawaii’s commitment to solar energy and
shows confidence in Enphase’s technology. The Mahalo giveaway is our way of
saying thank you and doing something special for the community.”

“We want to thank Enphase for this generous donation and the thousands of
friends and neighbors who voted for us. It was an incredible community
effort,” said Donna Ting, president of the Board of Directors of the La‘a Kea
Foundation. “Going solar is important. It helps us be a more responsible
steward of our resources and that is a good example for our residents and the
community. The savings from the solar system will allow us to continue to
focus on our mission of serving Maui residents with developmental disabilities
and helping them thrive in our community.”
