Supplier portrait: Enphase – Microinverters for the small difference on the roof

Unlike classic PV systems, in a microinverter system each solar module gets its own inverter. And it is installed directly on the roof under the module. On the one hand, this creates space in the house connection room, and on the other hand, shading on the roof is compensated for in the best possible way. A great technology for the homeowner. Our new partner Enphase is one of the leading suppliers of this microinverter technology. The company is one of the few to produce fully integrated solar energy and storage solutions and has already shipped more than 34 million microinverters. Reason enough for us to take a look at the success story of the American manufacturer. (more…)

Modules & mounting systems: The right combination matters

Module damage on the roof is unquestionably annoying and can quickly become stressful. It is small consolation when the product guarantees are still effective and one can in theory call the manufacturers to get everything done. It actually sounds pretty simple. Unfortunately, practice shows that the manufacturers of the various components sometimes do not agree which guarantees should apply to which product. Discussions are inevitable in these situations. The new combation warranty from IBC SOLAR provides a remedy here and allows stress-free processing in the event of damage.  (more…)
