ATLANTA, Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Siemens Industry, Inc. and Enphase Energy Inc. announced today a supply and distribution agreement for the sale of Enphase’s next generation of solar microinverter technology through the Siemens nationwide network of electrical equipment distributors. According to the agreement, Enphase will provide Siemens with solar microinverters and Enlighten, a web-based monitoring service to create reliable, turnkey solar photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions.
“We believe that the combination of Enphase Energy’s Microinverter System, integrated with our electrical distribution and safety products will set the stage for Siemens to become the premier provider of solar photovoltaic power solutions for businesses, homeowners and builders,” said Barry Contrael, director, Siemens Low Voltage Business Unit. “Predicated on Enphase Energy’s market-leading solution and proven reliability, the agreement enables us to expand into new markets and provide businesses and homeowners safe, affordable access to solar power.”
The Enphase Microinverter System provides a modular, scalable platform to connect roof-mounted solar PV modules with a typical building’s alternating current (AC) load center or panel board. Enphase microinverters offer a simple and compelling solution to complex system implementation problems and safety issues associated with the direct current (DC) output of today’s solar PV modules. Electrical contractors will now have expanded access to the technologies and tools they need to deliver these systems to their commercial and residential customers.
