Urban Solar Picks Enphase Energy Microinverters For Reliability and Storm Resilience

December 11, 2018 at 8:00 AM EST

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world’s leading supplier of solar microinverters, today announced that Urban Solar, a top solar installer in Florida, uses Enphase microinverters due to their high reliability and resilience in hurricane-susceptible regions.

The Enphase IQ™ Microinverter System is based on a distributed architecture, which allows each solar module to operate independently such that soiling, shading, or storm damage to one module does not affect the operation of the other modules. This resilience is a benefit of microinverters recently highlighted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in its 2018 Recovery Advisory for hurricane-prone regions.

“We use Enphase microinverters because we want to deliver the highest quality and most resilient solar products for our customers here in Florida,” said Michael Vergona, president of Urban Solar Group, Inc. “As an installer, Enphase products are great because they are very easy to install, we are not forced to spend time doing custom engineering work, and our installers are not at risk from exposure to high-voltage DC electricity. FEMA’s recommendation for using microinverters because of the storm-resilience they provide also motivates our customers to choose Enphase.”

With the Enphase Microinverter System, there is no need to connect modules and inverters with long runs of high-voltage DC cabling, providing a safer solar solution for solar installers and homeowners. The Enphase IQ™ Microinverter System also provides solar installers a truly plug-and-play platform, which enables easier installations and significantly increases installation speed.

“Urban Solar distinguishes itself by having a full-time quality assurance team on staff, which ensures that every solar system installed by Urban Solar adheres to the highest quality standard,” said Raghu Belur, co-founder and chief products officer at Enphase Energy. "Homeowners in Florida who look to Urban Solar and Enphase for their solar needs can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that storm damage to a single module will not take their whole system down.”
