Rexel Australia will provide solar installers with Enphase IQ 7™ and IQ 7+™ microinverters as well as the full suite of Enphase IQ™ accessory products, including the Enphase Q Cable™ wire system and the Enphase Envoy™ communications gateway, to ensure one-stop-shop convenience at its nearly 50 specialist solar branches across the country.
