Sentinel Solar installs Enphase microinverters to power Ontario's
largest rooftop solar system under the FIT program
PETALUMA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), today announced a 2.3MW (2MW AC) solar
project at Vine Fresh Produce, Ltd., in Ontario, Canada, utilizing the
Enphase System. The three-phase commercial system is the largest rooftop
solar PV array as part of the province's Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program. Sentinel
Solar of Vaughan, ON, managed the installation of over 9,000 Enphase®
M215 Microinverters (made in Ontario) and Jinko solar modules mounted to
Vine Fresh Produce's existing greenhouse building.

"From a small 2kW micro-FIT system to Ontario's largest commercial array
on the FIT program, Enphase has proven to be the ideal solution for our
customers in Canada," said Jeff Loebbaka, SVP of Worldwide Sales and
Field Operations. "We are proud to work with Sentinel Solar, our oldest
partner in Canada, to help make solar history for Ontario and for
Enphase. This milestone project is Enphase's largest announced to date."
The solar array at Vine Fresh Produce, Ltd., a southern Ontario
greenhouse operator, replaces part of the roof structure of a large
greenhouse facility, leaving the underside of each solar module exposed
underneath. This gives Sentinel and its customer easy access to each
module and microinverter without having to navigate on top of a roof,
allowing for simplified maintenance of the system. The simplicity of
Enphase microinverters combined with the safety of an all-AC system
allows the owner of Vine Fresh Produce to participate in the
installation and maintenance of his own solar investment.
"We have been fortunate to represent Enphase from the start in the
Canadian market," said Adam Webb, president of Sentinel Solar. "By
designing the system around Enphase we were able to complete the project
on time and on budget. This installation is the result of a year's hard
work by our team and partners and is one of many Sentinel-designed
Microinverter System offers a new approach to the installation,
operation and maintenance of solar energy systems. Enphase
Microinverters, the Envoy
Communications Gateway and Enlighten
web-based software platform work together to deliver increased energy
harvest and unparalleled solar system intelligence. To date, Enphase has
shipped over 3.7 million microinverters and is selling into eleven
countries across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
