The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-07-26T21:11:13Z Solar Companies Partner to Light Up the Days for TLC for Kids 2016-07-26T21:11:13Z solar-companies-partner-to-light-up-the-days-for-tlc-for-kids MELBOURNE, Australia – July 27, 2016 – A 30 kilowatt rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system was donated to TLC for Kids, a children's charity that provides practical and emotional support to sick kids and their families across Australia, during a fundraising event held in Melbourne on July 23.   Valued at $50,000, the solar PV system is a combined donation from three solar companies - Enphase Energy, Suntech and Living Energy. For this installation, 122 Enphase Microinverters and Suntech Tier One solar PV modules will be provided. The system will be designed and installed by Living Energy Solutions at the TLC for Kids headquarters in Brunswick West in Victoria.   When the solar PV system is commissioned in August, it is expected to provide almost 100 percent of the charity’s energy during the day. This will result in savings of up to $350,000 from power bills during the lifetime of the system’s operation allowing TLC for Kids to redirect this funding towards crucial services in over 400 children’s hospitals across Australia.   The system was donated at a fundraising event held at Progression Fitness Club owned by the Captain of Collingwood Football Club, Scott Pendlebury and his wife Alex. Collingwood players and celebrity supporters rallied behind a full day event at the club where guests had the chance to play off against Scott in a trick shot challenge to raise funds for TLC for Kids.   Enphase Energy, Suntech and Living Energy Solutions who had installed an 8 kilowatt solar PV system for Progression Fitness Club in June, rallied together to donate a system to TLC for Kids for the fundraising event.   Tim Conolan, CEO of TLC for Kids and 2014 Australian of the Year Local Hero recipient, said, “We are touched by this amazing show of generosity and would like to extend our sincere thanks to Enphase, Living Energy and Suntech. A solar system at TLC for Kids’ headquarters in Brunswick is a gift that will keep on giving. This system promises to relieve our charity of many years’ worth of power bills, meaning that hundreds of thousands in funds can be redirected to kids and families in need.”   Nathan Dunn, Managing Director of Enphase Asia-Pacific said, “Many charities across Australia, despite the the importance of their work, go completely without government support. In addition, they and forced to deal with added pressure from rising power prices which have more than doubled since 2007. Solar helps to shield these vital organisations from power price rises, and Enphase is delighted to support TLC for Kids with this donation.”   Peter Novak, National Sales Manager of Suntech Australia said, “Being a non for profit organisation, charities like TLC for Kids are exposed to the rising cost of energy. Sourcing energy from the sun will make a significant reduction to their electricity bills allowing TLC for Kids to funnel valuable donations to those that need it most.  Suntech are proud to support TLC for Kids with our donation of solar panels.   Ben Lovell, Director at Living Energy said, "We have seen the work TLC for Kids does and we couldn't be happier to support this important cause. We are a family oriented company and we recognise that nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of our kids. Solar is a great way for charities to future-proof themselves for years to come, and Living Energy is privileged to be in a position to be able to give back in this way."   Rushing a sick child to hospital and enduring long-stay admissions can be a stressful, world-shattering event. TLC for Kids is a children’s charity dedicated to providing support to sick kids and their families during these challenging times. Their services are delivered swiftly and without the need to undergo lengthy processes, evaluations, interviews or waiting times.     ENDS   Note to Editor: Download a photo from the event featuring (from left to right): Jess Christiansen from Living Energy: Solar & energy efficiency, Peter Novak from Suntech, Tim Conolan from TLC for Kids, Scott Pendlebury and Andrew Kent from Enphase Energy   https://www.dropbox.com/s/wh4luomkca2rv7j/TLC%20for%20Kids%20Charity%20Day.jpg?dl=0     About Enphase Energy Enphase Energy, a global energy technology company, is leading the charge to bring smart, connected solar energy to every home, business and community.

Scott Pendlebury’s Progression Fitness Club to be one of the First health clubs in Australia to install Smart Solar and Storage 2016-07-12T20:29:17Z scott-pendlebury-s-progression-fitness-club-to-be-one-of-the-first-health-clubs-in-australia-to-install-smart-solar-and-storage MELBOURNE, Australia – July 13 2016 – Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company, announced today that its installation partner, Living Energy, has installed a rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system in a fitness club owned by Collingwood Football Club captain, Scott Pendlebury.   The solar PV system was installed at the Cremorne training facility by Living Energy Solutions using Enphase Microinverters and Suntech One modules. Compelled by climate change issues and the desire for greater personal responsibility towards the environment, Pendlebury wanted to incorporate solar PV as a way of leading by example.   Spread across 450sqm, Progression Fitness Club boasts a main arena with premium Iron Edge training equipment, a 3-lane IAAF certified athletics track, boxing zone, 25-bike cycle room, heated yoga loft and designer change rooms. Led by specialist instructors, classes include HIIT Sweat, Strength, Cycle, Boxing, Yoga and Pilates.   Scott Pendlebury, partner at Progression Fitness Club and captain of Collingwood Football Club said, “From the word go, we wanted to provide a holistic health and wellness experience. Our members are driven to live fit and clean lifestyles and that extends to the environment. Now that we have our solar monitoring live on display in our lounge, the members can see what it’s generating and feel proud that their training is environmentally friendly.”   While the solar PV system currently provides more than 100 percent of the club’s daytime energy requirements, not all of their energy consumption occurs during solar hours meaning they still rely on grid power for their morning and evening classes. The installation of the modular and scalable Enphase Storage System will bring the club closer to being carbon-neutral.   Pendlebury said, “We’re extremely proud to be setting an example by being one of the early adopters of energy storage. We did our research and Enphase’s smart system was the obvious choice. When the Enphase AC Batteries are installed in August, we want the club to be energy-self sufficient but stay connected to the grid for the odd occasions when more power is needed.”   Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific said, “We are delighted to have been selected by Scott Pendlebury to help Progression Fitness Club go green. More and more Australians are seeing the benefits of smart, distributed generation. We congratulate the club on the example they’ve set and we look forward to seeing the additional benefits brought by installing the Enphase Storage System.”   Progression Fitness Club members will get a glimpse of how much solar energy has been produced throughout the day on the TV screens displaying monitoring from Enphase Enlighten™, a cloud-based platform that monitors solar generation and consumption from any web enabled device, with battery storage to be integrated from August onward.   The solar system is being included in Channel Seven’s AFL half time feature segment during the Adelaide V Collingwood game being televised nationally on July 16th.

(NASDAQ: ENPH) and Yingli Green Energy Australia Pty Ltd* announced today the installation of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on a unique, four storey home built on a 20 square metre footprint in East Melbourne, Victoria, using Enphase Energy® microinverters and Yingli Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.   Featured on Grand Designs Australia yesterday, the Five x Four Project sets a new precedent for the design and running of a sustainable home in Australia as it considers the full life cycle of a building’s development from its design, use of materials to its day-to-day operations.   The four kilowatt installation has been built without compromise for liveability and functionality with 15 Yingli Solar n-type Monocrystalline 270W Panda Series panels integrated into the building’s façade and roofline. The installation comprises over three different angles including six panels installed vertically on the northern façade of the building. This unique approach to solar system design demonstrates that when using world-leading solar technology, there are no limits to achieving maximum output throughout the day.   Energy drawn from these panels is converted into electricity using 15 Enphase M250 Microinverters, designed to deliver a superior standard in reliability, power and efficiency. Microinverters have been installed behind each panel, helping to maintain the building’s striking aesthetics. Occupants and the public will be able to monitor the system’s generation in real time through Enphase’s Enlighten software at https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com/pv/public_systems/x7XG495196 This intelligent, cloud-based platform provides insights on energy production, the health of the system and pre-emptive alerts to any potential issues.   Nathan Dunn, Managing Director at Enphase Energy Asia-Pacific said, “Enphase is delighted to be part of this iconic residential development that sets a benchmark for sustainable living through thoughtful design. Through the Enlighten platform, the occupants will be able to gather insights on their energy generation – and soon consumption – through an engaging interface. In addition, Five x Four is set to be one of the first homes in the world to generate, store and control its own power using the revolutionary Enphase Home Energy Solution including the Enphase Storage System.”   Daman Cole, Managing Director for Yingli Green Energy in Australia said, “Home owners throughout Australia have embraced solar identifying its cost savings and environmental benefits. We are delighted to see that the Five x Four Hayes Lane Project have taken this dream one step further by maximising its small footprint to generate the highest possible solar generation.”   “Yingli’s n-type Panda panels were used, as they produce more power per square metre compared with traditional solar technologies, especially where roof space is limited. This installation showcases how innovative technology can be integrated on buildings of all shapes and sizes, achieving the highest level of energy output for years to come.”   With Five x Four's estimated peak cooling load on a 40°C day being under 3kW, the solar system will generate more power than the home will consume, therefore exporting approximately 20 percent of the system's generation back to the grid. This will change with the installation of the Enphase Storage System, an AC Battery to  allow Five x Four to store its solar power for use at night.   Ralph Alphonso, Owner and Project Manager of Five x Four said, “Generating power on site was one of the key components and goals of the 5x4 Hayes Lane Project. It was important for us to maximise the energy output for our tiny footprint, and the performance specifications of both Yingli Solar panels and Enphase microinverters enabled us to do just that. The combination of these two products gave us flexibility in the design to balance liveability and high energy production."   The Five x Four Hayes Lane Project has been modelled on a minimal life-cycle energy and One Planet Living approach. Slotting between existing buildings, this pre-fabricated residential dwelling will house two people and over three floors. The One Planet Living approach has a commitment to enable a building’s occupants to monitor their ecological footprint and adapt their behaviour to yield better results.

(NASDAQ:ENPH) with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership. Enphase is making considerable progress toward achieving its vision of providing clean, reliable and affordable solar energy to both the mainstream commercial and residential sectors. Its innovative microinverters offer quantifiable benefits to society and the environment, offsetting over 1.8 million tons of carbon emissions. This cutting-edge technology has catapulted the company to the position of the technology leader in the solar inverter market.  Enphase’s solution is based on connecting individual microinverters on each solar panel, performing maximum power-point tracking (MPPT), which, in turn, leads to a significant boost in energy harvest. Due to its relentless innovation, the company’s fourth generation microinverters (M215 and M250) have emerged as the world’s leading inverter technology.  “In 2014, Enphase developed a ground-breaking Energy Management System, including a fifth-generation, smart-grid ready microinverter, plug-and-play storage, advanced control capabilities, and load management,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Gautham Gnanajothi. “This novel system will help address relevant solar energy challenges, as it integrates the required critical technologies of smart grid intelligence, communications, big data analytics, and storage.”  “We are proud to be recognised by Frost & Sullivan with the 2014 Global Award for Technology Leadership,” said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase. “Over the past several years, we have worked diligently to deliver advanced technology that has changed the landscape of solar energy, and this award is a testament to our strong commitment to technology innovation.”  The most striking aspect of the Energy Management System is that it benefits all stakeholders (system owners, installers and distributors, and utilities) across the supply chain. Enphase expects that with this technology, solar energy will become a standard home feature. The intelligent technology will enable the remote monitoring and maintenance of millions of systems, thus aiding solar scalability.  In September 2014, the company announced a comprehensive, concept-to-completion solution for commercial installations, which combines the advantages of its intelligent microinverter technology with a complete set of services and partnerships to assist the end user and installer. Additionally, in October 2014, it announced a modular, plug-and-play solution (AC battery) that is fully integrated into the Enphase Energy Management System. This modular battery will allow system owners to store solar energy for night use or future use, optimising solar power consumption and granting higher energy independence.  The company has taken an unusual approach to the development of solar inverters. It has rebuilt them from the ground up, using a new electronic topology based on a digital architecture. This method has made it possible to achieve a high degree of semiconductor integration, improving efficiency and reliability, while reducing costs. Its technology development efforts are spread over multiple areas such as power conversion, communication, visualisation and management software, semiconductors, electronics packaging, and operations and maintenance.  “Enphase's global growth strategy drives market share gains in the U.S. residential market, as well as international markets, while simultaneously expanding into the newer market segments of commercial solar and new solar home construction,” noted Gnanajothi.  “In a few short years, Enphase has supplanted traditional inverter technology to become the top solar technology in homes across the globe.”  Frost & Sullivan expects that Enphase’s high technology business model, world-class products, and superior customer support, combined with its innovative capabilities, will propel its long-term growth.  Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated uniqueness in developing and leveraging new technologies, which significantly impacts both the functionality and the customer value of the new products and applications. The award lauds the high R&D spend towards innovation, its relevance to the industry and the positive impact on brand perception.  Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development.
