Desert firefighters welcome solar to Firehouse #91

“Whenever we do a job, we always price both microinverters and string inverters. String inverters may save a few thousand dollars off the initial costs, but microinverters offer greater long-term savings. Enphase is the obvious choice, every time.”

Fort Mojave Mesa Fire Department #91 received $75,000 in funding from local electric cooperative Mohave Electric Cooperative and private nonprofit Huguenin-Rallapalli Foundation to install solar on its building rooftop.
It was important to Fire Department #91 that the solar array meet top safety and fire standards, so Enphase microinverters were chosen to ensure that only safe low voltage alternating current ran through the system. Microinverters also contain built-in rapid shutdown capabilities and perform reliably in the hot temperatures of the Arizona desert. The fire department will now produce enough solar energy to offset 90-95% percent of its energy consumption.
