California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Enphase Energy, Inc. has announced the general availability of the Enphase Energy Micro-inverter System. The Enphase Micro-inverter turns each solar module into a “smart” module by connecting it to the Internet, providing visibility and analysis of solar system performance. Installers and owners of Enphase Micro-inverter Systems will benefit from dramatically simplified design, installation and management of their solar energy systems, according to the company.
“The Enphase Energy team is proud to bring to the solar market the industry’s first micro-inverter system. We have over 1,000 units deployed in the field and customers are seeing energy harvest increases of 5-25 percent and balance-of-system (BOS) savings of 13-15 percent compared to systems designed with traditional inverters,” said Paul Nahi, President and CEO of Enphase Energy, Inc.
The Enphase system is comprised of the Enphase Micro-inverter, which converts the DC output of a single solar module into grid-compliant AC power, the Enphase EMU (Energy Management Unit), which allows solar performance data to be transmitted from the micro-inverters across a standard AC power line and Enphase Enlighten, a web-based visualization and analytics tool that provides production insight on a per-module basis.
