PETALUMA, Calif. -- January 8, 2014

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) and Ingersoll-Rand Nexia Intelligence LLC,
are working together to evolve smart home energy monitoring offered by Nexia™
Home Intelligence, a brand of Ingersoll Rand and leader in home intelligence
and automation. These collaborative efforts are aimed at integrating the
performance data from rooftop solar photovoltaic systems using Enphase^®
Microinverters  and making it accessible via the Nexia Home Intelligence
platform. This offers builders and homeowners a robust and comprehensive home
intelligence solution that integrates not only home automation capabilities,
but also renewable energy production data.

Nexia Home Intelligence brings together the best home automation technology
into a single, easy-to-use platform, allowing consumers to stay connected to
what matters most. Nexia subscribers can control products throughout their
home including locks, lights, thermostats, cameras, sensors, and more, all
from their smartphone or computer. By collaborating with Enphase, the national
leader in residential solar technology, Nexia Home Intelligence will greatly
enhance the management and monitoring aspects of home-energy use by including
energy production data for the first time.

“As the importance and penetration of solar power increases every year, we
have been looking to bring renewable energy generation information into the
data accessible via Nexia Home Intelligence,” stated George Land, director of
engineering for Nexia Home Intelligence. “With Enphase’s industry-leading
microinverter technology, and especially our ability to interface with the
Enphase Enlighten API (application programming interface), we are excited
about developing the ability to integrate solar energy production data and
monitoring into our Nexia Home Intelligence platform for homeowners.”

“The relationship with Nexia represents the perfect joining of smart solar and
intelligent home technologies,” commented Raghu Belur, vice president of
products and strategic initiatives at Enphase. “With the recent launch of our
fourth-generation Enphase System, this collaboration provides another example
of how Enphase continues to expand its offerings for U.S. residential solar
customers.”

Lennar, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, sees the value of these
joint efforts and already includes the Nexia Home Intelligence platform and a
solar-power system with Enphase Microinverters as standard features in many of
its new-home communities. The combination allows Lennar homeowners to enjoy
the cost savings and environmental benefits of solar power at no up-front cost
and gives them unmatched control over their home’s core functions – from
heating and cooling to door locks and lighting.

“Residential solar and home automation used to be costly and often complicated
add-ons, but the innovative collaboration between Enphase and Nexia allows
Lennar to bring advanced living to buyers at all price points,” said Fred
Stefany, vice president of customer experience at Lennar Ventures. “Enphase
and Nexia’s technological leadership continues to expand the range of benefits
buyers should come to expect when shopping for a new home.”
