Enphase Energy Launches IQ8P Microinverters for High-Powered Solar Modules in France and Spain

FREMONT, Calif., April 02, 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, in France and Spain to support newer, high-powered solar modules.

IQ8P 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 670 W DC. All IQ8P Microinverters activated in France and Spain come with a 25-year limited warranty.

“Enphase’s IQ8P Microinverters are a perfect fit for the latest high-powered solar energy systems in France,” said Julien Vouriot, general manager at Solair' Forez, an installer of Enphase products in France. “The new product allows homeowners to get the most out of their investment.”

“Our customers are increasingly prioritizing energy resilience and independence,” said Ariel Pazos, managing director at AV Solar (TAC S.L.), an installer of Enphase products in Spain. “The IQ8P-powered Enphase Energy System is an all-in-one solution that helps give our customers complete confidence in their investment.”

In addition to the IQ® Microinverters, the Enphase® Energy System™ in France and Spain also includes IQ® Batteries (see French and Spanish versions), offering an all-in-one solution that allows homeowners to store their energy for later use and avoid relying on expensive energy from the grid. The IQ® Combiner 3P (see French and Spanish versions) consolidates interconnection equipment into a single enclosure and streamlines solar and storage installations by providing a consistent, pre-wired solution that includes the IQ® Gateway Metered, two IQ® Relays, a communications kit, and additional accessories. It can also connect the entire system to the internet to enable over-the-air updates and connection to the Enphase® App monitoring platform.

“Enphase has developed a new, high-performance IQ8P Microinverter with two key benefits for our customers - fire-safe installations and reliability,” said Mickaël Garcia, general manager at NRJ Ingénierie, an installer of Enphase products in France. “Enphase also remains committed to providing the software systems needed for easy installation, integration, and optimization. Equipped with the right hardware and software, we’re scaling deployments of the Enphase Energy System across the country.”
