(All-Energy 2015) – Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global
energy technology company, today announced that Australia and New
Zealand are the first markets worldwide to receive the Enphase®
Home Energy Solution, an integrated solution combining solar
generation, energy control, and energy storage. The award-winning
Enphase technology is an advanced energy solution that delivers a high
return on investment and greater reliability to the system owner.
“The dynamics of the residential solar markets in Australia and New
Zealand make it one of the most storage-ready regions in the world,”
said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase. “Homeowners in Australia
and New Zealand want total control of their home’s energy because of the
combination of electricity rates, high solar penetration, and declining
feed-in tariffs. The Enphase Home Energy Solution fits these needs with
compelling economics and sets the stage for the evolving energy market.”
Seventy-eight percent of existing Enphase system owners in Australia and
New Zealand have indicated a strong interest in receiving the Enphase
Home Energy Solution. Enphase will roll out the components of the
Enphase Home Energy Solution in these regions starting in December 2015,
with the Enphase AC Battery™ to be available in Q2 2016. The key
components of the Enphase Home Energy Solution include:
The fifth-generation Enphase S-Microinverter™ is a powerful, smart solar
energy inverter that simplifies installation and delivers market-leading
quality and reliability with a design that is inherently safer with
greater energy yield. Designed to pair with high-powered modules, the
S-Series Microinverter delivers a significant reduction in cost per watt
and minimizes homeowners’ and installers’ risk in an environment of
changing grid standards.
Envoy-S Metered™, a bidirectional communications gateway, empowers
homeowners to control the energy in their home and enables more
cost-effective and reliable installations. The Envoy-S Metered offers
consumption monitoring and is zero export compliant, making it ideally
suited to solar PV systems in Queensland and New South Wales.
Envoy-S Metered also enables system owners to rightsize their energy
storage system to maximize the value of the energy from the owner’s
solar system. With more than 20 percent of Australian homes already
having installed solar and feed-in tariffs rapidly declining,
economically viable energy storage is an attractive proposition that
will accelerate the adoption of home energy management and storage.
The Enphase AC Battery™ is a scalable, modular energy storage system
that seamlessly integrates with the Enphase Home Energy Solution. It
delivers high performance and superior reliability, allowing homeowners
to achieve self-consumption or to simply store solar energy for use at
times when grid-supplied energy rates are at their peak. For installers,
the Enphase AC Battery provides lower upfront costs and higher lifetime
value, especially for retrofits, where the economics are the best in the
industry. From the perspective of utilities, the intelligent, networked
Enphase AC Battery is a powerful vehicle for distributed storage models,
since it incorporates Enphase’s signature fleet-level performance
monitoring and remote upgrade capabilities.
Enphase Enlighten™ is a cloud-based platform that connects the Enphase
Home Energy Solution with smart devices for an intelligent home. System
owners use Enphase Enlighten to monitor their home’s solar generation,
battery storage and consumption from any web-enabled device. System
owners may also connect their Enphase system with other smart home apps,
including Google’s Nest.
Australian and New Zealand residents who are interested in purchasing
the Enphase Home Energy Solution can register online at http://www.enphase.com/au/register.
The Enphase Home Energy Solution will be available to solar installers
through Enphase’s authorised distributors, including AC Solar Warehouse,
Australian Microinverters, One Stop Warehouse, RFI, Solar + Solutions
and SunEdison, as well as Solar Partners NZ and YHI in New Zealand.
