Safe, Optimised & Reliable.....

What is Enphase & why should you consider it for your installation?

Instead of having one large ‘String Inverter’ with your solar panels connected to it you have small inverters that sit behind each solar panel. These are called ‘Microinverters’ and they have several advantages over the standard ‘String’ inverters.

Enphase also produces a storage battery, the IQ 5P.

Microinverter Advantages

Safe

The Enphase IQ Microinverter design is the safest choice for solar. Unlike systems with a string inverters, Enphase solar never contains high-voltage direct current (DC) power, eliminating the risk of High Voltage DC arc fault fires.

Optimised

Each Enphase microinverter works on its own. Partial shade, clouds or even rogue leaves will only effect individual solar panels. With a string inverter all of the panels would be impacted. A great choice for all situations. This also allows flexible placement of panels which you simply can’t achieve with panels wired in strings.

Industry Leading Warranties

Enphase microinverters have a 25 Year Warranty & the Enphase IQ 5P battery has a 15 Year Warranty. These are industry beating warranties. Why? Because Enphase products are built to last!

No Single Point of Failure

Microinverters work independently and thus remove the single point of failure that you would experience when a string inverter fails.

What is a microinverter?

Each solar panel has an Enphase microinverter attached to it. The microinverters turn DC power into AC power that can be used in our homes. The microinverters are linked by a simple AC cable and send the combined energy they generate from the sun into your house.

Each unit is unique and you are able to monitor each individual solar panel using the Enphase enlighten app.

The microinverters have a 25 Year Warranty.

Here at voltPV we really like the Enphase products, good quality that’s tried and tested. 

Enphase IQ8 Series Microinverters

IQ8 Series Microinverters

Enphase’s smartest microinverter ever.

The new IQ8 Series Microinverters are high-power, Smart Grid-ready and designed for the latest generation of high-output PV modules.

Small things make a big difference

Enphase IQ Microinverters are named after their highly intelligent microchip. We customise our chips to maximise the size, weight, reliability and performance of our products.

Enphase IQ 5P Battery

Power

The Enphase IQ Battery 5P all-in-one AC-coupled storage system is the most powerful battery yet from Enphase. AC Coupled means it can be used with your existing Zappi or existing Solar inverter. AC Coupled batteries offer the end user greater control over where and when to use stored energy. It has a total usable energy capacity of 5.0 kWh and includes six embedded microinverters with 3.2 kVA power rating. 

Multiple Units = Even More Power!

These batteries come in 5kWh units, up to 12no. IQ 5P units can be installed in one location, this would provide 43kW of battery power (180Amps AC) with a storage capacity of 60kWh. However 2-4no. units would provide enough power for most UK homes.

4no. units would provide 20kWh of storage with an output of 60Amps possible! That is one of the most powerful outputs from a domestic battery available.

Reliability

Inside the IQ 5P lies six embedded microinverters, again reducing any single point of failure and drawing from Enphase’s experience in the market. A well thought out and adaptable unit. This is the only UK available battery to boast a 15 Year Warranty. Invest in something designed and built to last for your home.

Enphase App

24/7 remote monitoring and management.

Monitor your system status from anywhere and know exactly how much energy your solar system is producing. Generate reports on energy production by day, week, month, or year. Complete with clean and easy-to-read graphs and infographics.

View panel-level production detail

See exactly how your individual panels are performing. Is there an under performing panel? Does one side of the array collect more dirt than the other? Either way you can keep an eye on the system. Early morning and late evening shade, no problem. Your optimised panels will start performing when the light hits the first panel right the way through until the light leaves the top panel.

Get reports on your home energy consumption

Where is your generated solar energy going? Track and monitor battery state of charge levels, grid export and import. Adjust battery charge times and charge profiles. All from anywhere in the world!
