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

In part 2 of our Solar Glossary series, we’re exploring the hardware and software components that make up a solar power system. You’ll see these terms often when comparing one system to another, so it’s helpful to get to know them. We’re also including here the names of some of the most commonly mentioned Enphase Components, to help you understand what they are and how they fit into the system.

So you’re searching for the right solar technology and the best installer to meet your needs. But there are lots of words and phrases that are hard to understand. That’s why we put together this Solar Glossary — to help you make an informed decision about going solar. This is part 1 of a three-part series, and we’re starting with the basics: the terms you’ll often see related to electricity and solar production.

Solar batteries were once beyond the financial reach of the average American homeowner. But thanks to increased capacities and falling prices, solar storage solutions are increasingly becoming standard with modern home solar systems. This shift is creating innovative ways for solar customers to grow their savings.

The AC module, ACM or AC solar panel is the optimization of solar on the rooftop. The concept of AC modules originates back with NASA in the 1980s; the patents for the technology were acquired by Sanyo, a subsidiary of Panasonic in the 1990s and acquired yet again by Enphase in 2014. The AC module combines three separate parts into a single product — solar panel, microinverter and accompanying cable for connecting to the rest of the solar system.

Ensemble™ energy management technology is coming soon — and it’s going to revolutionize the way people think about solar systems. We are providing installer training to help solar companies get ready. At this special in-person training led by the Enphase team, you’ll get thorough and hands-on guidance that will set you up for immediate success with Ensemble. We recently conducted the first couple of Ensemble training sessions and our attending installer partners had some great things to say.

The California Solar & Storage Association (CALSSA) has been one of the strongest champions of our industry. In California, CALSSA has provided support for and driven Net Energy Metering (NEM), established the California Solar Initiative, streamlined permitting, backed the California Solar Mandate for New Homes, driven $1B in rebates for storage through SGIP, and brought us the Solar for Multi-Family Homes program. This track record is more than impressive.

Omar Nasser is president of Treepublic Energy, one of the leading providers of rooftop residential and commercial solar in the greater Los Angeles area and a Solar Power World 2018 Top Solar Contractor. A clean energy company since 2008, Omar joined forces with Enphase Energy in November 2018 and transitioned Treepublic to using Enphase inverters exclusively. In the conversation that follows, Omar discusses what drew him to Enphase products and he describes several innovative, revenue-generating opportunities in the solar business that his switch to Enphase helped make possible.

A 2016 NREL study estimated the total rooftop solar PV potential in the US at 1.1 Terawatts. Enough to produce 39% of the nation’s electric energy needs. Every time I’ve flown in a plane for the last 15 years (since joining the industry), all I see is that potential. Drilling down to the subject at hand, GTM notes the national run rate for all Commercial and Industrial solar installations is about 2GW per year. Of this, 27% or 540MW, are projects below 250kW.
