"We are proud to provide California Home Builders advanced solar
technology that generates financial and environmental benefits for
homeowners included with the purchase of their home," said Jeff
Loebbaka, SVP of global sales, marketing and support for Enphase Energy.
"With the Enphase System, California Home Builders can track and
showcase their solar homes online, and Leonard Roofing can confidently
install a flexible and reliable solar array."
"Enphase technology allowed us to design smart solar systems that
California Home Builders can easily integrate into original home
designs," said Marshall Howen, major accounts manager for Leonard
Roofing. "The simple plug-and-play design of Enphase microinverters made
