Here’s what we’re working on and thinking about at Enphase.

At Enphase, we consider the milestone of seeing our one-millionth system installed as more of a starting point than a place at which we’ve arrived. Getting to this point required outsized measures of innovation, grit, and the belief that the longevity of solar assets demands highly reliable products. Getting to this point also required the dedication and trust of the many solar installers who have stuck with Enphase through thick and thin; these partners have our deepest gratitude.

One of the most consistent trends in photovoltaic (PV) technology has been the steady increase of power output ratings of solar modules. This increase in module power output is the result of advances in material science and the R&D efforts of both mono- and polycrystalline module producers. Today, the average power output of monocrystalline modules is 375 W.

Over the next five years, we can expect module power output to reach 450 W, and at Enphase, we are staying ahead of the technology curve.
