PVTIME - Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world's leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, announced today that installers of Enphase® products in Florida have seen growing deployments of Enphase Energy Systems™ powered by IQ8™ Microinverters.
Residential solar deployments in Florida have grown substantially over the last several years and are expected to reach more than 500 MW by the end of 2022, according to the most recent U.S. Solar Market Insight report from Wood Mackenzie and the Solar Energy Industries Association. Additionally, deployments of residential battery capacity in Florida are expected to grow more than four-fold by the end of 2026, according to the most recent U.S. Energy Storage Monitor report from the Energy Storage Association and Wood Mackenzie.
“Enphase’s IQ8 Microinverters are unlocking more energy independence for our customers than ever before,” said Matt Selby, president at Unicity Solar. “We’re excited to grow our business by offering Enphase’s industry-leading products and services to homeowners across Florida.”
“The recent Hurricane Ian left millions of Florida residents without power and electricity for several days,” said Justin Vaughan, CEO at Freedom Solar Energy. “Many of our customers with IQ8-powered Enphase Energy Systems kept their lights on, including a Florida homeowner whose house was the only one on the block with power.”
Enphase’s revolutionary IQ8-based systems can provide Sunlight Backup™ functionality during an outage even without a battery. For homeowners who want battery backup, there are no sizing restrictions when pairing Enphase IQ™ Batteries with IQ8 Microinverters. With the Sunlight Jump Start™ feature, IQ8 Microinverters can restart a home energy system using only sunlight after a prolonged grid outage that drains the battery. This eliminates the need for a manual restart of the system and gives homeowners greater assurance of energy resilience. Enphase IQ8 Microinverters are built to last and come with a 25-year limited warranty.
“Energy security is very important to Florida homeowners and Enphase’s IQ8 Microinverters give our customers peace of mind, with or without a battery,” said Luke Guy, owner at Sunergy Solar. “Enphase aligns with our mission to provide customers with the best possible experience using solar energy systems.”
“Thanks to our experienced installer partners in Florida, homeowners across the state are making their clean energy goals a reality,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “Our industry-leading microinverter technology powers high-quality energy systems that are safe, resilient and adaptable.”
