  First global shipment of the Enphase AC Battery to arrive in Australia and New Zealand in August 2016

 

SYDNEY, Australia May 9, 2016 –Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company, announced today that Enphase authorised distributors are now accepting orders for the Enphase AC Battery™ from installers in Australia and New Zealand.

 

The first global shipment is expected to arrive in Australia in August 2016. The company’s partner network of over 1,000 installers located in the region will be the first in the world to have access to the Enphase AC Battery, a scalable, modular energy storage system that is a key component of the Enphase Home Energy Solution.

 

Solar installers can order the Enphase AC Battery through Enphase’s authorised distributors in Australia; AC Solar Warehouse, One Stop Warehouse, RFI, Solar + Solutions and SunEdison as well as Solar Partners NZ and YHI in New Zealand. Homeowners can be connected with local Enphase installers via www.enphase.com/au/quote.

 

Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific said, “Enphase received strong interest from homeowners in Australia and New Zealand when we announced the Enphase AC Battery in October 2015. The feedback we’ve received to date from our partners has been extremely encouraging and I am delighted that Australia and New Zealand will be the first region in the world where we will be selling the Enphase Home Energy Solution.”

 

The Enphase AC Battery, which features an updated visual design unveiled in February 2016, is suitable for any home regardless of the brand of inverters or solar panels used. Unlike most other home batteries, a costly upgrade of the existing solar system’s inverter is not required. This makes the Enphase AC Battery an ideal solution for homeowners looking to add energy storage to their existing solar PV system.

 

Dunn added, “We believe the Enphase Home Energy Solution represents the most compelling and technologically advanced residential energy solution in the world today. In fact, it is the only complete energy system that we’ve seen to date and we expect the initial demand to be driven by installers looking to retrofit existing residential solar PV systems. Enphase expects the next wave of demand to be driven by new solar PV system owners enticed by the elegance and simplicity of our solution.”

 

The Enphase AC Battery integrates seamlessly with the Enphase Home Energy Solution, which delivers one of the lowest up-front costs and highest lifetime values in the market. The Enphase AC Battery is an integrated energy storage system that is safe, built for maximum performance and offers superior reliability. Its modular architecture and ability to be right-sized makes it cost-effective, with the flexibility to grow with the home’s individual energy demands now and in the future.
