Enohase Launches Tailored Commercial Solution
Enphase has introduced a new comprehensive product solution targeting commercial installations in the Asia-Pacific market. The offering includes the new advanced Enphase® M250 Microinverter, now supporting both 60- and 72-cell PV modules.
The center of the commercial solution is the M250 energy system that delivers enhanced power generation and operational performance along with a lower Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) than competing string or central inverter systems. “The launch of the new Commercial Solution in the Asia-Pacific market is an important sales initiative for Enphase as we expand the recruitment and retention of our customer base,” said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of global sales, marketing and support at Enphase. “This latest offering squarely addresses the strategic priority we place on deepening and expanding the long-term relationships we have with our commercial customers in this very important region.”
The new commercial product solution will also include Folsom Labs’ advanced HelioScope solar photovoltaic (PV) system design software for commercial Enphase installations. Folsom Labs has incorporated Enphase® Microinverter Systems—including the M250 Microinverter into HelioScope to streamline the sales and engineering workflow for commercial PV system designers.
“The HelioScope customer base is rapidly expanding in Australia and New Zealand, and many of them use Enphase. By incorporating the Enphase Microinverter products, we provide our customers the integration they are demanding, and further accelerate our growth,” said Paul Gibbs, CEO of Folsom Labs. “Our partnership with Enphase enables installers to quickly assess the viability of each potential residential or commercial project, generating high-quality designs and bankable energy estimates.”
Enphase has had significant success in commercial installations, with more than 10,000 installed systems ranging from 10kW to over 2MW globally. “Our success in the residential market serves as the foundation for our delivery of purpose-built commercial systems now, and we are expanding our commercial product offerings in the Asia-Pacific region to meet the growing demands of our customers,” said Nathan Dunn, Asia-Pacific managing director for Enphase.
Purpose built for commercial projects, the Enphase Commercial Solution achieves the highest energy production with competitive upfront costs, delivering lower Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) than competing string or central inverter systems.
The heart of the Enphase Commercial Solution is the world-class M250 Microinverter System. The M250 system performs efficiently and saves money, lowering BoS costs to move energy from the inverters to the grid.
