Enphase Energy Launches IQ8P Microinverters for High-Powered Solar Modules in Thailand and the Philippines

FREMONT, Calif., March 28, 2024 (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, today announced that it has started shipping IQ8P™ Microinverters, with peak output AC power of 480 W, for residential and commercial applications in Thailand and the Philippines to support newer high-powered solar modules.

IQ8™ Microinverters are designed to maximize energy production and can manage a continuous DC current of 14 amperes, supporting higher-powered solar modules through increased energy harvesting. The newly available IQ8P Microinverters are the most powerful microinverters available to date from Enphase. The product features a peak output power of 480 W and is designed to seamlessly pair with a full range of solar modules up to 640 W DC. All IQ8P Microinverters activated in Thailand and the Philippines come with a 15-year limited warranty.

“The overall potential of the residential solar market in Thailand is high, as approximately 22 million homes could install solar energy systems over the next 10 years,” said Apisit Tanadumrongsak, CEO of SCG Future Energy Co, a company based in Thailand. “We believe that Enphase offers best-in-class products with regards to consistency and energy production, providing industry-leading safety standards for our projects and a high return on investment.”

The Enphase® Energy System™ integrates with the IQ® Gateway, which can be connected to the internet to enable over-the-air updates and connect to the Enphase® App monitoring platform. The IQ Gateway and IQ® Microinverters enable industry-leading monitoring capabilities at the solar module level, supporting critical insights for ongoing system operations and maintenance for homeowners and small businesses.

The Enphase IQ8P Microinverter is designed to use low-voltage alternating current (AC) power instead of high-voltage direct current (DC) power like central (“string”) inverter-based solar systems. Additionally, Enphase IQ Microinverters include built-in rapid shutdown to help keep first responders and utility workers safe. In an emergency, solar power can be turned off instantly and easily.

“As demand for electricity grows in the Philippines, people are turning to renewable energy to safeguard their access to reliable and affordable power,” said Charlie Ayco, president of WeGen Energy Philippines, a company based in the Philippines. “The Enphase IQ8P is easy to install, maintain, and operate. It creates maximum value for our customers and enables us to build the right system based on different levels of energy needs.”

“Enphase is committed to expanding our global footprint and access to the industry’s leading energy technology,” said Aaron Gordon, senior vice president and general manager of the systems business unit at Enphase Energy. “We’re grateful for our installer partners across Southeast Asia, who continue to support us on our mission to unlock the future of clean, resilient energy for all.”
