California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Enphase Energy shipped the 100,000th unit of its micro-inverter in September 2009, reaching this remarkable milestone just over a year after the product’s launch in July 2008. Enphase Microinverter Systems convert the DC output of a single solar module into grid compliant AC power.
“The adoption of the Enphase Microinverter System by installers large and small has greatly exceeded our expectations,” said Paul Nahi, president and CEO, Enphase. “Customers, system installers and distributors throughout the country recognize the unprecedented value these microinverters bring to solar power systems and are asking for the Enphase Microinverter by name.”
One key reason the Enphase Microinverter has such a high adoption rate is due to the simplicity of installation, the company said. To date, Enphase Microinverters have been installed in residential and commercial sites in virtually all 50 U.S. states and Canada, boosting overall solar growth.
“We use Enphase Microinverters in all our installations,” said Donna Bourdeau, president of Power1Solar. “Our customers value the productivity and savings they deliver and our technicians love the ease of installation and maintenance.”
