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

Getting back on the bicycle after a seven-year hiatus from all outdoor activities, Oz Robledo prepares for the ride of a lifetime.

It wasn’t until a meeting at Enphase two weeks ago that this Customer Support Enphaser realized his passion for community well-being and his desire to become more physically active could work hand-in-hand. After hearing that he could represent Enphase in this year’s Climate Ride, this bike ride became a dream he could not let die.

I knew traveling to Australia to support the availability of Enphase early this month entailed a long flight. I did not know it involved time travel. I flew out Friday evening, Feb. 1, and arrived Sunday morning, Feb. 3 – missing Groundhog's Day entirely! I had landed in the future. As the maturation of the solar industry on this sunny continent rapidly develops, it truly is part of the bright future for Enphase's global expansion.

Located in Arbuckle, CA, Strain Ranches is one of the largest farm-based solar installations in the United States to power its commercial rice drying and storage facilities. The 902kW ground-mount array features 3,760 industry-leading Enphase microinverters matched with SolarWorld modules, which offset the ranch’s electrical processing needs.

“We invested in solar because it provides a reliable return on investment and makes sound financial sense,” said Dane Nissen, warehouse manager for Strain Ranches, “…the solar array was built to perform and to last.”

The fifth edition of the annual Belgian PV show, InterSOLUTION, held in Ghent from January 23-25, 2013, opened its doors the first morning with thick snow outside and freezing temperatures. This did not deter visitors from making their way into the exposition hall and stopping by the Enphase booth. At the booth, Enphase staff demonstrated new product offerings, such as the ArrayGun, a new mobile scanning device integrated with Enlighten software.

Claude had several buildings on his property including one older chicken barn which faced almost due south, ideal for solar energy systems.

A common question asked of Enphase installers is, “Why are you installing a 260 watt solar module on a 215 watt microinverter?” But, there is no "common answer" to this question.

Though the practice of “over-sizing” solar pannels relative to the inverter has existed for decades, it remains one of the trickiest topics to explain. And, even among solar professionals, conversations about over-sizing become more like religious debates than scientific discussions (trust me, I’ve been there).

The reason for all the confusion: there is no right answer.
