Solar Energy Company Wins Excellence in Renewable Energy Award
PETALUMA, CA–(Marketwire – February 25, 2010) – Enphase Energy, the leader in solar microinverter systems, was recognized by Renewable Energy World magazine with an award for innovation in renewable energy. These awards honor the most outstanding projects, programs and technologies in the wind, solar, biomass, geothermal and hydroelectric energy sectors. The winners were announced at the Renewable Energy World North America Conference & Expo in Austin on Feb. 23, 2010.
“We’re honored that the Enphase Microinverter System was recognized by Renewable Energy World as a breakthrough technology in energy innovation,” said Paul Nahi, president and chief executive officer, Enphase Energy. “The introduction of solar microinverters has redefined the inverter market, and is a game changer for the future of energy management.”
The Enphase Microinverter System is the first and only commercially available microinverter system. It dramatically improves the economic model of solar energy, helping advance the adoption of residential and commercial solar power. Enphase integrates state-of-the-art microinverters and power-line communications with Web-based monitoring, analysis and management services to create a new class of advanced solar energy solutions that are vastly more productive, reliable, safe and cost-effective than conventional approaches.
Enphase systems offer a number of advantages over traditional central inverters including a five- to 25-percent increase in energy harvest, increased system reliability as well as a simpler and safer installation. Enphase products also remove design constraints by allowing modules to be installed in any combination of type, age and location. In addition, a proprietary communication technology, Enphase Enlighten, is embedded into each microinverter enabling continuous, remote, per-module monitoring to maximize energy production.
