About Enphase company
Enphase Energy is an American company that was founded in 2006. The headquarters are located in Fremont, California. Enphase energy designs and manufactures software-driven home energy solutions, batteries and web-systems of monitoring and control. The manufacturer pioneered the concept of a microinverters and now it’s the staple product of a company. Here are some numbers about the brand:
- Over 300 issued patents
- More than 27 million inverters shipped
- 1500+ employees worldwide
- Over 20 countries of operation
Enphase inverters work well even in extreme weather conditions and difficult climates, like tundra or tropics. In 2014 Enphase engineers tested their inverters in Australia where the equipment had to endure, for instance, 12 days with ambient temperature above 104 °F reaching the peak at 115 °F. Not a single Enphase solar inverter broke down — all of them passed the testing. The lifespan of microinverters is comparable to the life of solar panels which is why every Enphase inverter comes with a 25-year performance warranty.
The other advantages that Enphase inverters have are high production levels and easy setup. Microinverters are known to be very efficient in general and Enphase inverters show great conversion rates. The efficiency of most of their models is close to 100% (96%-98%) — almost no energy is lost in the process. When it comes to installation, all of the microinverters go on top of your solar panels and it’s done. After that you can monitor the performance of your system via the app on your smartphone or a laptop.
