What’s new

The following new feature is added in the Enphase App 3.7.1 release:

Ability to delete your account

We’ve introduced a new function that enables you to delete your Enphase account directly from the Enphase App. This offers you the highest degree of control over your account information and protects your privacy. Important things to consider before deleting your account:

  • Deleting your account deactivates the account and removes certain personal information associated with your account.

  • Deleting your account does not remove data related to the Enphase system.

  • Enphase retains some information related to your deactivated account to ensure support and warranty assistance.

  • If you wish to return to the Enphase App, you can reset your password and reactivate your Enphase account.

If you have an Enphase system and you would like to delete your Enphase account:

  1. Tap “Menu” in the navigation bar.

  2. Tap “Account.”

  3. Tap “Delete Account.” You will receive a warning pop-up that prompts you to authenticate your delete action before deleting your account.

  2. Battery profile displaying incorrectly

    As Homeowners with battery, you may have noticed your battery profile displayed incorrectly in the app after asking an Installer to change it. We've improved this process moving forward so that the Enphase app always gets the latest status directly from your Envoy device.

    Note: This feature will roll out in phases to all homeowners over the coming weeks.

  2. Grid transition verification code, via text messages

    Homeowners with an Enphase Battery Storage System can now receive their verification code via text in addition to email to confirm they'd like their system to operate in Off Grid mode. If the mobile number isn’t updated, the app will ask for confirmation the next time the homeowner chooses to disconnect their system from the grid.

  5. Updated account management emails  

    We’ve refreshed the design and functionality delivered via these emails, including password reset, account unlock, new email address confirmation, and consumption access requests.



  1. False charge below reserve notification

    Some homeowners with an Enphase Storage system may have received a false notification that its charge was below the reserve level while Storm Guard was active, even though its actual charge was close to 100% . This has since been corrected, and homeowners will now receive the accurate reserve level notifications

  2. Inconsistent grid connection status on some screens  

    Some homeowners with an Enphase Storage system may have noticed that on the Status page of their app, their system was showing as ‘On Grid’ but ‘Unknown’ on the settings page in the Grid Control feature. We’ve resolved this to now display the correct grid connection status on all screens.

What’s new?

Here are four new features that place even more power in the palm of your hand.

  1. Enable/Disable your battery charging from grid

    Today batteries are charged from the grid only in critical scenarios. We are now giving you an option to enable the battery charging from the grid for other scenarios as well. By default, the option will be disabled, and batteries will charge only from solar. If enabled, batteries will charge from the grid when your battery is in Full Backup mode or when battery charge is below the reserve capacity Savings or Self-Consumption modes.

    Know more

    To use this feature, do the following:

    1. On the navigation bar of the Enlighten mobile application, click Menu.

    2. Select Battery to view the Battery screen.

    3. Select Advanced Settings on the top right of the screen.

    4. Enable “Charge battery from the grid toggle”.

      Step 1: From the Battery screen, Tap Advanced Settings icon

      Step 2: Toggle the "change battery from grid" button.

      Step 3:  Confirm by ticking the check-box and tapping "Enable".


      Step 4: Grid charging will be enabled.

  2. Redesigned Banner communications

    We update you on the various app updates and critical alerts through the in-app banners. Our newly designed banners will help the updates from us reaching to you in a more engaging manner.

    Banners, after dismissed, will be present in Notices until they expire.

  3. Enphase now supports Storage only sites for backup 

    The view for Storage only Ensemble sites [Storage sites not having microinverters] has been redesigned and updated to make it useful for you

  4. Reserve Battery charge to be preserved for the previous battery mode

    We want to make your life easy. So, when battery modes are changed from Savings or Self-Consumption to other modes, the reserve charge levels are now preserved.

What's New

Energy Independence setting for Savings Mode

We are introducing a new Energy Independence setting under Savings Mode. This new option under Savings Mode further reduces reliance on the energy grid after peak hours, lowering monthly utility bills for homeowners as they transition to 100% energy independence.

When this new Savings Mode setting is turned on by the homeowner, their Enphase system will start to take full advantage of all available battery power, around the clock, 24/7. For those homeowners who prefer to reserve some battery power for emergencies, this feature can be toggled off. (It initially defaults to ‘off.’)

This feature is under the process of rollout in Q2.

What’s new?

Here are four new features that place even more power in the palm of your hand.

  1. Text message notifications

    Backup power is critical during an outage. Our all-new text messages alert you when the grid goes down or is back up. Now, you can swing into action as soon as the grid goes down to ensure you have backup power when you need it the most.

    To ensure you receive these text messages, register your mobile number on the Enlighten app as follows:

    1. On the navigation bar of the Enlighten mobile application, click Menu.

    2. Select Account to view the Account dialog box.

    3. Select My Information and enter your mobile phone number in the Mobile field.

    4. Click Save Changes.

    Text notification for critical alerts
  2. Enhanced app menu

    A good mobile app is always intuitive. That's why the menu has a new tile layout that helps you find what you need quickly. You’ll notice that we've also simplified the navigation by reducing the options under each menu item. Now, you can find all Account settings under My Information, My Notification, and My Access. 

    Text notification for critical alerts
  3. Battery prioritization

    The Savings Mode of the Enphase Storage system helps you avoid using electricity from the grid during peak hours when your electricity cost is higher. Here’s how the new enhancement to this mode can help:

    • During peak hours, your home is powered by the battery as a first choice, solar as the second choice, and the grid as the third choice. Any excess solar not used by your home gets exported to the grid.

    • During off-peak hours, your battery charges from the solar to get ready for peak hours. Your home consumption comes from excess solar.

    • Electricity gets imported from the grid when your home needs more power than solar can provide.

    In this mode, your battery reserves some energy to power your home during an outage. You can change the reserve from the battery settings page.

    Use this mode to save on your electricity bill.

  4. Redesigned email notifications

    Email alerts should be worthy of your time. That’s why our new e-mails notify you of a system error or alert, and a lot more. You get recommendations, updates on exciting discussions in the Enphase Community, metrics such as site ID, and links to support, all in one email.

    Text notification for critical alerts

    To ensure that you receive these emails, do the following:

    1. On the navigation bar of the Enlighten mobile application, click Menu.

    2. Select Account to view the Account screen.

    3. Select My Notifications to view the My Notifications screen.

    4. Enable Notify me about system production or service-related issues checkbox.

    5. Click Save Changes.
