Enphase Energy will offer its Enphase® Home Energy Solution to Australia and New Zealand, where are the first markets worldwide to enjoy the integrated solution combining solar generating, energy control, and energy storage. As Enphase knows, there are approximately 78% of its customers in the two nations are strongly interested in receiving the new solution.
The key components of the Enphase Home Energy Solution are:
- Generation: The fifth-generation Enphase S-Microinverter™ is an innovative and powerful smart solar energy inverter that simplifies installations as well as optimizes the cost/performance ratio.
- Control: Envoy-S Metered™ offers consumption monitoring for homeowners to control the energy in their home and enables more cost-effective and reliable installations. It also enables system owners to rightsize their energy storage system to maximize the value of the energy from the owner’s solar system.
- Storage: The Enphase AC Battery™ is a scalable, modular energy storage system that seamlessly integrates with the Enphase Home Energy Solution to store solar energy for use at times when grid-supplied energy rates are at their peak.
- Management: Enphase Enlighten™ is a cloud-based platform that connects the Enphase Home Energy Solution with smart devices for an intelligent home. System owners use Enphase Enlighten to monitor their home’s solar generation, battery storage and consumption from any web-enabled device. System owners may also connect their Enphase system with other smart home apps, including Google’s Nest.
“The dynamics of the residential solar markets in Australia and New Zealand make it one of the most storage-ready regions in the world,” said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase. “Homeowners in Australia and New Zealand want total control of their home’s energy because of the combination of electricity rates, high solar penetration, and declining feed-in tariffs. The Enphase Home Energy Solution fits these needs with compelling economics and sets the stage for the evolving energy market.”
Enphase will roll out the components of the Enphase Home Energy Solution in these regions starting in December 2015, with the Enphase AC Battery™ to be available in Q2 2016
