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

For Enphase enthusiasts, the arrival of Ensemble™ technology has been long-awaited, and can now be preordered!  Ensemble is Enphase’s latest software technology which makes a solar+storage system “grid-agnostic”, that is, it works regardless of the utility grid’s working status. Enphase's energy solution has the best specs in the industry and should be worth the wait.

The big promise of going solar is that you’ll enjoy decades of lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint. However, these financial and environmental benefits only exist when installing a solar installation that can withstand the test of time. As such, it pays to invest in high quality panels installed by knowledgeable experts who can properly test and configure your system.

Sometimes “traditional” is great: grandma’s casserole, the perfect morning coffee, chocolate chips in your cookies… but when you start to think about home solar, traditional just isn’t good enough.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the biggest downsides of a traditional solar setup.

The Grid Reigns Supreme

Did you know that blackouts cost Americans $180 billion in damage each year? Although short outages are just a minor inconvenience, some outages last many hours or even days. Interruptions can cause basements to flood, pipes to freeze, food to spoil, damage to electronics, and missed work hours. In severe cases, damage can reach tens of thousands of dollars.

If you’re thinking of going solar, where does safety fit into your decision-making process? When you meet potential installers, you’ll likely hear a lot about kWh and PV materials. And you’ll probably also be treated to some calculator-worthy math problems that’ll get you daydreaming of future savings. But does your installer talk about safety?
If you’re opting for traditional solar technology, probably not. And that’s a missed opportunity for an important conversation. When you look at the Enphase home energy solution, you’ll see why safety matters.

Enphase Energized™ AC Modules or ACM’s are the next evolution of solar systems; they further simplify and optimize the installation process by combining microinverter and solar panel into a single product; an installation using AC Modules can take up to 40% less time to install versus a conventional solar system.  Introduced in 2017, Enphase AC Modules are immune from high-voltage DC arc-fault hazards; they have now been installed by over 700 solar professionals and represent the safest solar system on the planet.

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.

In 2013 I installed an Enphase solar system on my home and barn roofs; I increased the size of the system until I reached a breakeven point with my utility costs.  The finished system consisted of 6 solar strings for a total of 20,000-Watts AC.  The system was so simple; it consisted of solar panels each connected to microinverters with each string of panels connected to a 20-Amp double-pole circuit breaker in a sub-panel which then connected to my main utility panel.  My system has since paid for itself,
