In order to extend Enphase Energy’s global microinverter business, the company has entered a strategic partnership with EnergyAustralia. Under the agreement, Enphase will provide its microinverter-based solar PV system to Australian customers. It will also be exclusively featured as the only microinverter and monitoring platform in EnergyAustralia’s Next Generation Solar product suite.
“The Enphase System provides customers with a simple, reliable and safe solar solution,” said Gavin Lewis, product and sales manager, EnergyAustralia. “It is extremely flexible and designed to increase the energy generation for each roof, thereby maximizing savings on the customer’s energy bill, which means we can now offer a quality product to customers with partly shaded rooftops, who may have previously been told their homes were not suitable for solar.”
“The partnership with EnergyAustralia is a big win for our Asia-Pacific operation--the first with an Australian utility--offering Enphase access to approximately 10% of the Australian population,” said Nathan Dunn, managing director, Asia Pacific, Enphase Energy. “Australian consumers are now recognizing the importance of investing in quality solar components, and we believe EnergyAustralia’s solar customers will be delighted with the Enphase solution.”
The Enphase Microinverter System is available through EnergyAustralia as either an upfront purchase or with an interest-free payment plan.
