PETALUMA, Calif. -- October 22, 2013

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) announced today the successful completion
of a 125-building distributed solar project developed by Main Street Power
Company, Inc. using Enphase^® Microinverters. The flexibility of Enphase
technology in commercial solar allowed the project to be spread across 29
schools and two facilities buildings throughout the San Diego Unified School
District (SDUSD), with individual system designs varying in size and
orientation.

“Enphase is proud to have our trusted technology associated with a project
dedicated to educating children about alternative energy. Not only will the
students learn about their school’s rooftop solar in the classroom, but the
school district will benefit from reduced energy costs over the long term,”
said Bill Rossi, CMO of Enphase Energy.

Main Street Power has developed a K-12 solar education program to be
integrated into the schools’ science curriculum. In its “Train the Trainers”
program, Main Street Power will teach science teachers in the 29 schools where
solar was installed how to implement this new curriculum focused on renewables
and solar energy into their classrooms.

“Despite each building’s unique size and structure, Enphase made it possible
to maximize the array size on each rooftop, all using a single technology,”
said Eric Hinckley, senior vice president and chief technology officer of Main
Street Power. “Also, San Diego Unified School District turned to solar for its
environmental impact, but the money saved by the solar arrays will provide
more resources for teachers and students – a win-win for the community.”

Leveraging New Market Tax Credits, Main Street Power propagated development in
low-income areas, exposing the students and parents of 25 different schools to
the benefits of solar energy.

Enphase microinverters allowed Main Street Power and the San Diego Unified
School District to rely on one type of inverter technology to support 3.1MW of
arrays and more than 125 different systems designed using different angles,
orientations and sizes. Where challenging rooftop spaces would have made
sizing arrays logistically impossible with traditional inverters, flexible
microinverters can be customized to fit both the smallest of arrays as well as
megawatt-scale systems. The design diversity of SDUSD’s distributed 3.1MW
system exemplifies the flexibility and adaptive nature of Enphase technology.
