FREMONT, Calif., June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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 New York have seen growing deployments of Enphase Energy Systems powered by IQ8™ Microinverters following the products launch in North America late last year. IQ8 Microinverters paired with Enphase’s industry leading IQ™ Batteries give homeowners more energy security as increasingly common heat waves and other natural disasters strain the grid.
According to the most recent US Solar Market Insight report from Wood Mackenzie and the Solar Energy Industries Association, residential solar deployments in New York are predicted to reach nearly 150 MW in 2022, with growth expected to more than double over the next decade. Additionally, residential battery capacity in New York is increasing steadily year-over-year with forecasts estimating deployments will grow nearly five-fold by the end of 2026, according to the most recent US Energy Storage Monitor report from the Energy Storage Association and Wood Mackenzie .
“As summer heatwaves and the potential for power outages loom, New York homeowners can find support with reliable backup power and clean energy technology from Enphase,” said Scott Maskin, founder and chief executive officer at SUNation Solar Systems, an Enphase Gold level installer. “IQ8 Microinverters and IQ Batteries power one of the highest performing and most customizable home energy systems available, allowing us to tailor the system to the specific energy needs of each customer.”
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 on pairing Enphase IQ Batteries with IQ8 Microinverters. In addition, with the Sunlight Jump Start™ feature, IQ8 Microinverters can restart a home energy system using sunlight only after prolonged grid outages that may result in a fully depleted battery. This eliminates the need for a manual restart of the system and gives homeowners even greater resilience. Enphase IQ8 solar microinverters come with a 25-year limited warranty.
“IQ8-based energy systems from Enphase offer a distinct advantage over conventional solar systems without battery storage, as the Enphase system can continue operating when the grid is down,” said Achilles Tzoulafis, owner of Infinity Energy, an Enphase Gold level installer with operations in New York and New Jersey. “Homeowners can also add an IQ Battery to help take even more control of their energy generation and consumption.”
“We aim to bring peace of mind to homeowners regarding power outages by providing Enphase Energy Systems,” said Carlo Lanza, president and founder at Harvest Power, an Enphase Gold level installer. “IQ8 Microinverters eliminate the sizing restrictions when pairing solar with home batteries and can even eliminate the need for a battery at all. This next-generation technology enables flexible, customizable home energy solutions to meet the growing demand in New York.”
The IQ8 Microinverter system is the first in the world to be certified by UL, a global safety science leader, for the new North American safety and grid interconnection standards for connecting solar inverters, energy storage systems, and distributed energy resources to the grid. Enphase’s IQ8 Microinverters, paired with the IQ™ Combiner 4/4C and IQ™ Gateway, create the first complete residential DER system certified by UL.
“We’re seeing growing interest in IQ8-based Enphase Energy Systems across the United States driven by rising utility rates and the desire for more energy independence,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “Enphase is grateful to its installers in New York who work tirelessly to deliver leading home energy management solutions to homeowners across the state.”
