FREMONT, Calif., March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world's leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, announced today the first shipments of Enphase® microinverters produced with global diversified manufacturer Flex in Timisoara, Romania. This production ramp represents a key milestone in the two companies’ 15-year partnership and builds on the manufacturing expansion plans announced in April 2022. With the Flex factory in Romania, Enphase will be able to increase global capacity and improve delivery times to its customers in Europe, addressing the region’s rapid growth and demand for residential solar.
Initial shipments from Flex’s Romania factory are the IQ7™ family of microinverters.

Shipments of IQ8 Microinverters from Romania are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023.
