We documented the whole installation and even had some of the Enphase engineering team on site to run some experiments on the system. Enphase has an incredible lab environment for our engineers to research, test, and develop products and solutions, but nothing beats getting out into the real world and studying new conditions and variables. Of course, this slowed down the installation, but it was all in the service of science. At least that’s what I told my family.
Now I’m the proud owner of my own energy producing solar system. In fact, my house is part of a growing community of more than 855,000 Enphase installations around the world. The reduced impact and cost savings are great, but I’m now increasingly interested in choice. More specifically, where our energy comes from. What if you could choose how your home gets energy, whether it’s from your utility, your solar system, or even a neighbor’s solar system down the street?
Introducing Ensemble™ energy management technology: The power to choose
Well, let’s talk about Ensemble technology by Enphase. In 2020, we will release Ensemble technology, a revolutionary energy operating system that will give users control over every aspect of their home’s energy production, consumption, and storage. In effect, Ensemble technology will establish a microgrid, protecting homeowners from grid failures. No blackouts, no ancient infrastructure, no peak rate juggling.
When Ensemble technology is released later this year, you can bet that I’ll be calling up my installer and asking them to add this new technology to my roof. Then my existing microinverters and panels will network seamlessly, creating my own microgrid when the grid fails and allowing me to choose where my home’s energy comes from, giving me complete control and independence. Sign up to stay in the know or check with your installer about when Ensemble might be ready for your system.
