Enphase and India – setting the pace
As of January 31, 2018, India’s accumulated solar installations reached 20 GW of total capacity - from a mere 2.6 GW in 2014 – 4 years ahead of schedule. Absolutely incredible. Even better, the average current price of solar electricity is now 18% below the average price of its coal-fired counterpart and capacity is set to double to 40 GW by 2022.
Similarly, at Enphase in India: Within less than one year, we set up an office, recruited some of the most capable talents and signed contracts with distribution partners such as Sun-AP Ecopower, Redington and Waaree. To mark these milestones, we invited key stakeholders to the official launch of our Engineering and Business Operations Center in Bangalore. Soon to be our second largest office outside headquarters, this Center of Excellence will be the home to software and hardware engineers, supply chain, strategic sourcing, product management, and customer service staff. These groups will meet the needs of Enphase’s customers both locally and worldwide.
The launch – our commitment to and mission for India
On February 14th, about 50 guests and Enphase employees marked this special occasion with a ribbon cutting and traditional candle ceremony. Excitement and enthusiasm were in the air and felt by all. Representatives from Sun-AP Ecopower, EcoSoch, Cares Renewables, GenSol, and PlaySolar – just to name a few – were thoroughly surprised and impressed by the sheer scale of the operations we have planned for India. It is without a doubt we are committed to this market. True to our mission – To deliver technology solutions that make clean energy affordable, reliable and accessible to all – we are just at the very beginning of our journey to electrify India one Enphase microinverter at a time.
Not just business – but a family affair
As most of you know, one of our co-founders – Raghu Belur – is originally from India. Now, he is one of the Silicon Valley’s success stories. Yet, when he came to California from India over 20 years ago, no one knew that he would one day be the visionary and driving force behind Enphase, the world’s largest microinverter manufacturer. It therefore makes it even more special that Raghu’s parents attended the India office launch, celebrating the ever-expanding footprint Enphase has created around the world.
