No course of dealing or usage of trade may be invoked to modify this Agreement. The failure by Enphase to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement will in no way be construed as a waiver of such provisions.

Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party will not be applied in connection with the construction or interpretation of this Agreement.
Enphase Leads Program Terms and Conditions
The following Enphase Leads Program Terms and Conditions (“Leads Terms”) apply to the Leads Program and are incorporated into the Enphase Installer Agreement by this reference. All references in this Appendix 1 to “Agreement” refer to the Agreement and these Leads Terms, collectively. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Appendix 1 will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Enphase Installer Agreement. Participant may be required to electronically or physically sign this Agreement prior to receiving a Lead (defined below).
- Leads Program Description:
- Participant is in the business of installing Enphase microinverters, storage solutions and other Enphase products (collectively, “Enphase Products”) in PV solar and/or storage systems owned by individual home-owners (each, an “End User”).
- From time to time, Enphase Energy Inc. and its subsidiaries (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Enphase”) conducts marketing activities related to Enphase Products, which may include direct marketing of the Enphase Products to End Users, through the internet, the Enphase Enlighten™ platform, e-mail, SMS and/or any other authorized medium.
- If, as a result of the aforementioned marketing activities, an End User expresses interest in purchasing Enphase Products (each such End User being a “Prospective End User”), Enphase may provide Participant such Prospective End User’s information, including but not limited to contact details, requirements for Enphase Products, and/or other potentially personal identifiable information (such collective Prospective End User information, a “Lead”).
- Upon the receipt of a Lead from us, Participant agrees to fulfil the Prospective End User’s requirement(s) for Enphase Products, on terms agreed between Participant and the Prospective End User, and subject to this Agreement.
- Lead Sharing and Exclusivity
- Enphase may, from time to time, share Leads with Participant, which may include the Prospective End User’s requirements for Enphase Products.
- Upon receiving a Lead from Enphase, Participant will be required to confirm its intent to Follow Up on the Lead by accepting the Lead within the time period indicated by Enphase, and thereafter promptly (and within nor more than five (5) business days) actually Follow Up on the Lead. “Follow Up”, as used in this Agreement will mean contacting the Prospective End User identified in the Lead, and marketing and offering for sale Enphase Products. In the event that: (i) Participant does not Follow Up on a Lead within the aforementioned period; or (ii) Participant elects not to Follow up on a Lead (such Leads described in (i) and (ii) being a “Forfeited Lead(s)”), Participant expressly agrees that: (a) Participant will not retain the Forfeited Lead information from Participant’s systems, databases, and any other format used in storing the information either in hard or soft copy, and (b) Participant will not otherwise affirmatively contact such Forfeited Lead on any medium or in any manner whatsoever, regarding an energy management and/or storage solutions similar to the Enphase Products (“Competitor Products”), without the prior written consent of Enphase; provided, however, that Sections B(2) (a) and (b) will not require Installer to delete any information that Installer had in its possession prior to receiving the Forefeited Lead(s) from Enphase.
- If in response to a Follow Up, a Prospective End User agrees to purchase Enphase Products, Participant will fulfil the requirements of such Prospective End User promptly by using Enphase Products . For the avoidance of doubt, nothing contained in this Agreement will permit or imply that Participant may fulfil the Prospective End User’s requirements under a Lead by using any Competitor Products, and violation of this Section 1.3 will be considered a material breach of this Agreement.
- You acknowledge and agree that the restrictions in Section 1.2 and 1.3 above are necessary given the effort and resources employed by us in generating the Leads, and that Enphase is entering into this Agreement with Participant in reliance upon these restrictions, the aforementioned warranties and other remedies set forth herein, which form an essential basis of the bargain between Participant and us.
- It will be Participant’s sole and exclusive responsibility to obtain all necessary licenses and/or permits and to comply with all codes, laws, rules and regulations applicable to installing and re-selling the Enphase Products to the Prospective End Users.
- Additional Terms: The following additional terms below apply to Participant depending on: (a) whether the Prospective End User opts to purchase Enphase products; and/or (b) whether the Prospective End User is a User who already has Enphase Products installed at their site by an installer who is currently inactive (an “Orphaned System”).
- Storage solutions: Prior to Follow Up on Leads where the Prospective End Users have expressed interest in purchasing Enphase storage products, Participant will: (i) register for and complete the Ensemble training applicable to such products; (ii) once the training in (i) has been completed, educate the Prospective End Users about the benefits, value and availability of Enphase’s Ensemble solution, in a manner satisfactory to Enphase; and (iii) if the Prospective End User chooses to purchase Enphase’s Ensemble solution, procure the Ensemble solution from Enphase or its authorized distributors to satisfy the Prospective End User’s requirement.
- Orphaned Systems: We may provide Participant with Leads for Orphaned Systems. Such Leads will include information regarding full configuration, including but not limited to the number of micros, system status and activation details. If Participant chooses to Follow Up on such Leads, Participant will be made the assigned installer for such Orphaned System, and the change in installer will be provided to the Prospective End User. Please note that Participant will not be liable for any workmanship warranty, or any existing system defects and the product warranty ownership of the systems will continue to be with Enphase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all other terms with respect to the Leads and End Users will continue to apply with respect to Leads for Orphaned Systems.
- Confidentiality.You agree to maintain the confidentiality of the Leads in perpetuity and not to disclose, or permit any third party or entity access to, the Leads without the prior written permission Enphase or the End User. You represent and warrant that the Leads will be used by such personnel as required, only in connection with the obligations provided hereunder, and will not be exploited by Participant or Participant’s permitted subcontractors for any internal, commercial or other purpose in any manner whatsoever. You recognize and acknowledge that any use or disclosure of the Leads in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement will cause Enphase irreparable damage for which remedies at law may be inadequate. Accordingly, Enphase will have the right to seek an immediate injunction in respect of any breach of these confidentiality obligations without posting bond to obtain such relief.
- Compliance with Privacy Laws. You will be solely responsible for compliance with all applicable statutes in processing the Personal Data of Leads provided by Enphase, including but not limited to the Privacy Laws related to any Personal Data of any Prospective End User that may be contained in the Leads.
