Siemens Industry announces distribution agreement with solar microinverter company

Siemens Industry, Inc. and Enphase Energy Inc. have signed an agreement in which Enphase will provide Siemens with solar microinverters and a web-based monitoring service in order to create turnkey solar photovoltaic energy solutions.

02/08/2011


Siemens Industry, Inc. and Enphase Energy Inc. announced a supply and distribution agreement for the sale of Enphase’s next generation of solar microinverter technology through the Siemens nationwide network of electrical equipment distributors. According to the agreement, Enphase will provide Siemens with solar microinverters and Enlighten, a web-based monitoring service to create turnkey solar photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions.

The Enphase Microinverter System provides a modular, scalable platform to connect roof-mounted solar PV modules with a typical building’s alternating current (AC) load center or panel board. Enphase microinverters offer a simple and compelling solution to complex system implementation problems and safety issues associated with the direct current (DC) output of today’s solar PV modules, according to Siemens. Electrical contractors will have expanded access to the technologies and tools they need to deliver these systems to their commercial and residential customers.

By providing innovative per-module microinverter technology that dramatically simplifies system design and installation time, Enphase aims to remove the technical barriers that have traditionally limited the growth of solar PV in commercial and residential applications. This combined with Siemens’ power distribution and circuit protection technologies will reportedly ensure the growing demand for renewable energy is met with a solar system that remains safe, cost-effective and reliable throughout its lifetime.
