Lyon, France, 23 March 2017 – Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world’s leading supplier of solar microinverters, announced today that it is now shipping AC batteries to customers in Switzerland. The Enphase AC Battery is a key component of the Enphase Home Energy Solution, the industry's first truly integrated offering that combines solar generation, energy control and storage.
“The demand from both installers and homeowners for the Enphase AC Battery in the lead up to its debut in Switzerland has exceeded our expectations,” said Gérald Semenjuk, regional director for France and Switzerland, Enphase Energy. “With 4.8kWh of energy storage installed by one person in less than 2 hours, installers are telling us the Enphase storage system offers the simplest installation on the market, and their customers are just as excited.”
The modular size of each 1.2kWh Enphase AC Battery enables installers to right-size each installation to match homeowners’ unique energy needs, and gives them the flexibility to easily add more batteries in the future as their energy usage changes over time. Homeowners will be able to maximize the value of their solar photovoltaic (PV) system, taking advantage of self-consumption and time-of-use tariff management opportunities, with an expandable platform for evolving uses for energy storage such as residential peak shaving and grid services.
“We are delighted to see the arrival of the Enphase solar storage solution,” said Besnik Islami, CEO of ABC Solar. “The demand for Enphase’s AC battery product has exceeded all our expectations, and we are able to offer our customers this revolutionary, differentiated and above all modular solution. We believe the Enphase solution is the best storage solution on the market from a safety perspective, and it allows us to optimize our installations in terms of energy independence by achieving self-consumption rates that can reach 80% to 90%.”
“The Enphase AC Batteries are simple to install, safe and they provide a high value-added sale for both new solar customers and retrofit customers," said Darien Spencer, vice president of manufacturing and operations at Enphase. "We have partnerships with some of the best suppliers and manufacturers in the world, and we believe our energy storage solution will become a market leader in Switzerland.”
