Enphase scores win for large multiple-rooftop project, strengthens commercial market position

PETALUMA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), has been selected by SoCore Energy, a commercial-industrial solar project developer, to be an inverter supplier for a major commercial solar program with a Fortune 50 retailer. Enphase will be providing its microinverter systems for over 4 megawatts (DC) of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) installations developed, engineered and managed by SoCore across locations in California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and Massachusetts.

SoCore and Enphase have collaborated on several commercial installations featuring Enphase® Microinverters. This latest project, spurred by the retail customer's determination to use Enphase following SoCore's recommendation, reinforces the partnership and further demonstrates the value of microinverter solutions for small-, medium-, and large-sized commercial rooftop installations.

"We have worked together since the early days of Enphase, and I'm a big believer in the company's microinverter system," said Pete Kadens, president of SoCore. "In addition to the Enphase system's simple, flexible design and installation, superior energy production, and inherent reliability, its Enlighten monitoring platform provides an ease of servicing and remote troubleshooting capability. This makes it ideal for a multiple rooftop project."

"Our commercial solutions are built to increase energy production, simplify design and installation, improve system reliability and provide a platform for intelligent energy management," said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of global sales, marketing and support at Enphase. "Partnering with a market leader like SoCore in commercial and industrial installations underscores the growing preference for Enphase Systems in the complete range of commercial solar applications."

The commercial solar market is poised for robust growth, and Enphase continues to accelerate its activities in the sector. The company recently announced it has expanded the Enphase Energy Services group with the acquisition of Next Phase Solar, a leading commercial operations and maintenance (O&M) provider. In addition, Enphase has started shipping its new C250 purpose-built microinverter systems to commercial customers.
