IQ8 Series Microinverters

Our smartest microinverter yet.

Our newest IQ8 Microinverters are the industry's first grid-forming solar panel microinverters with split-phase power conversion capability to convert DC power to AC power efficiently.

IQ8 Microinvertors@2x
  • Full family of microinverters for DC modules up to 530 W.

  • Eliminates battery sizing restrictions. 

  • Our proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) enables the microinverter to operate in grid-tied or off-grid modes.


Small things make a big difference

This chip is built in advanced 55nm technology with high-speed digital logic and has super-fast response times to changing loads and grid events, alleviating constraints on battery sizing for home energy systems.


Future proof your customer's investment

With IQ8 at the core, Enphase Energy Systems are flexible and scalable. Start with an IQ8 solar-only system and add Enphase batteries and an IQ Load Controller as energy needs grow for resiliency.

Why are microinverters better?

No single point of failure.

If a solar panel with a central inverter built in fails, solar production stops completely. With one microinverter per module, solar production keeps working even if a microinverter fails.

Maximum power per module.

Whether it's a leaf, dirt, snow, or a cloudy day — obstructions happen. With microinverters, each solar panel operates independently, while central inverters limit their production to the weakest module.


A bright idea,
even in low light

IQ Microinverters use breakthrough Burst Mode™ technology to capture more energy in low-light conditions, such as when there are shadows or clouds passing over the solar panel.

It shines, even
when it rains

IQ Microinverters are NEMA 6 certified and are recommended by FEMA, meaning they can endure just about anything Mother Nature sends their way.

Industry-leading warranty

IQ Microinverters are backed by an industry-leading 25-year limited warranty.

Safety First

Safety first

IQ Microinverters are inherently safer because they operate at the same low-voltage AC power as your home. Our systems never contain high-voltage DC power.

Firefighter with uniform

Responsive and responsible

IQ Microinverters include built-in Rapid Shutdown so that, in the event of an emergency, your solar power can be turned off instantly and easily, keeping utility workers and first responders safe.


Everything just clicks

IQ Microinverters uses plug-and-play technology in order to make your installations faster and easier. Everything snaps together to form a perfect fit. Installation happens with a click even if you are wearing gloves.
