Enphase Microinverters flexible design enables Museum to keep
historic appearance while reaping the benefits of solar power
MELBOURNE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), announced today that New Zealand's
largest microinverter installation, using Enphase®
Microinverters, has been successfully installed at the Auckland War
Memorial Museum. What
Power Crisis, a provider of renewable energy services and solutions
for New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, utilized Enphase microinverter
technology in this 50kW rooftop system.
What Power Crisis selected Enphase technology for its ability to meet
the installation guidelines set by the New Zealand Historic Places
Trust. The guidelines prohibit DC wiring to run down the inside of the
building. Enphase systems are all-AC cabling, which easily comply with
the building code guidelines. Enphase technology also allowed the Museum
to maximize its rooftop space and increase its planned system size from
42kW to 50kW.
"Our original design plans involved string inverters, but Enphase
Microinverters allowed us to increase the system size significantly to
provide the Auckland War Museum with greater energy production," said
David Keppel, managing director for What Power Crisis. "Enphase
technology benefits both our business and our customers because it
offers more design flexibility than any other inverter."
"The Auckland War Museum is a high-profile installation that will help
raise solar energy awareness in the region," said Nathan Dunn, managing
director, Asia-Pacific, Enphase Energy. "We are thrilled to have
customers and partners in New Zealand who help demonstrate the benefits
of smart solar power."
With the Enphase-based solar system, the Auckland War Museum expects to
reduce its electricity expenses and its carbon emissions footprint while
generating enough clean energy to power the building's extensive
electricity demands by producing an estimated 66,000 kWh per year.
