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: The Power to Choose
Well, let’s talk about Ensemble by Enphase. In 2019, we are set to release Ensemble, 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 will establish a microgrid, freeing homeowners from the grid completely. Entire neighborhoods can band together to create a network of solar systems and achieve total energy independence. No blackouts, no ancient infrastructure, no peak rate juggling.
