Enphase Energy Microinverters Power Innovative Minneapolis Commercial Solar Project
All Energy Solar designed the solar system as a building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) element of MoZaic East’s architectural features to highlight the commitment to sustainable construction embodied in the high-profile building. The array features 112 solar modules installed at varying angles to add a distinctive wave pattern to the structure, with aesthetic enhancements of SolarSkin module overlays from Sistine Solar to add color and depth to the installation. All Energy Solar chose Enphase IQ 7+ microinverters to both offset output differentials from the differently angled and wrapped modules and simplify array service on the vertical mounting surface. The 43.12 kW DC solar system at MoZaic East features the Enphase Network Protection Relay™ (NPR) device, which allows commercial solar installers to quickly deploy the Enphase microinverters on commercial solar projects in jurisdictions that require compliance with IEEE 1547 for three-phase solar systems.
“Our goal with this commercial solar project was to highlight the innovative, future-focused, and welcoming concept of MoZaic East, and Enphase microinverters helped us deliver the highest possible energy production given the array’s one-of-a-kind citing,” said
“The array at MoZaic East performs the important task of making solar visible from the street-level through extraordinarily creative design and engineering, and it is an honor to see SolarSkin technology at the heart of this project,” said
The Enphase Three-Phase Network Protection Relay device with integrated Enphase IQ Envoy™ gateway and Enphase Mobile Connect™ modem device consolidates three-phase interconnection equipment into a single enclosure and streamlines installations by providing a consistent, pre-wired solution for three-phase commercial 208 VAC applications. The Enphase NPR device features a durable NEMA type 3R enclosure, a five-year warranty, and is compliant with UL 1741 SA for grid support functions enabling smarter, safer, reactive grid interconnection.
“Michael and the team at All Energy Solar combined their solar and construction experience in an innovative way on the MoZaic East building, and we congratulate them on the great result,” said
Enphase microinverters are subjected to a rigorous reliability and quality testing regiment with over one million cumulative hours of test cycles in heat, high humidity, salty air, and extreme cold. To further help ensure quality and durability, Enphase IQ 7+ microinverters are designed to be long-lived energy assets and do not contain complicated moving parts or easily breakable components, such as fans, and are backed by a 25-year warranty.
