Enphase Energy and Puerto Rico’s New Energy Consultants formed a strategic partnership to bring affordable solar energy to residential and commercial customers in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean markets. The partnership calls for Enphase® Microinverter Systems to be installed in 100% of residential systems deployed by New Energy in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Local distributor Warren del Caribe, a Sonepar company, will provide logistics.
Vale Aldamuy, president of New Energy, commented, “The Enphase system offers greater productivity and efficiency in renewable energy equipment, a solid warranty, easy installation and lower overall cost of ownership. This partnership with Enphase Energy will help accelerate solar adoption in our region.”
“We are committed to working with local partners like New Energy and Warren del Caribe to support the development of the Puerto Rican and Caribbean solar markets,” said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of sales, marketing and support for Enphase.
Kris Koch, business development manager at Warren del Caribe, commemded, “Enphase’s microinverter system is especially beneficial in the Caribbean region because it is compatible with multiple grid types and parameters that would prove challenging for any other single microinverter.”
Enphase Microinverter System’s modularity, simplicity of installation, advanced monitoring and remote diagnostics bring them increased operational efficiency and scalability to rapidly growing solar companies like New Energy. Since many solar installers throughout the Caribbean realize the advantages of working with a single microinverter SKU, distributors such as Warren de Caribe can lower their operating costs thanks to simplified logistics and inventory management.
