The Enphase Microinverter System

Enphase has pioneered a new approach to managing solar power that makes solar systems smarter and more efficient.

Traditionally solar panels are connected in series which connect to one inverter which treats all of the panels as one continuous array, the main drawback of this is if there is a problem with one of the panels (for example a tree causing shading), all the other panels will also suffer an equivalent output loss meaning that the system’s efficiency is greatly reduced.

Enphase’s revolutionary IQ Microinverter design provides better performance, reliability, and resilience for each individual panel on your roof.

We are proud to be Which? approved.

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.

Reasons to Choose Enphase Microinverters

Safety First

IQ Microinverters are inherently safer because they operate at the same low-voltage AC Power as your home. Our systems never contain high-voltage DC power.

Responsive and responsible

IQ Microinverters include built-in rapid shutdown to help keep utility workers and first responders safe. In an emergency, solar power can be turned off instantly and easily.

Expansion has never been so easy

Enphase Energy Systems are based on a distributed architecture. This modular microinverter design means you can easily expand a system as home energy needs grow.

Certified for rain or shine

Microinverters are IP67 certified with a double-insulated, corrosion-resistant polymer housing, so they’re ready for just about anything Mother Nature can throw at them.

A bright idea even in low light

If shadows or clouds pass overhead, Enphase IQ Microinverters use breakthrough Burst Mode technology to capture more energy in low-light conditions.

Industry-leading 25 year warranty

Enphase IQ Microinverters are backed by a 25-year warranty.

IQ Microinverter advantages

Enphase Energy’s pioneering microinverter technology made rooftop solar more productive, reliable, smart and safe when it was introduced 15 years ago. Today, more than 1.7 million homes across 130 countries rely on 39 million Enphase microinverters–and counting–to gain access to solar energy.

Enphase Microinverter Vs String Inverter

Continuous power during a daytime outage:

Enphase IQ8: YES     String Inverter: NO

With IQ8, power essential appliances–lights, fans and phones–during daytime outages, even without a home battery.

Single point of failure

Enphase IQ8: NO     String Inverter: YES

Independently functioning microinverters remove the single point of failure resulting in a more reliable solar system.

Limited warranty

Enphase IQ8: 25 years    String Inverter: 10-15 years

A longer limited warranty means a better customer experience.

Additional equipment needed for Rapid Shutdown compliance

Enphase IQ8: NO    String Inverter: YES

Enphase microinverters simplify safety by including built-in Rapid Shutdown capability.

Module-level monitoring

Enphase IQ8: YES    String Inverter: NO

Easily track production and quickly pinpoint issues with module-level monitoring.

Design flexibility

Enphase IQ8: HIGH    String Inverter: LOW

Maximise rooftop space and adapt to design challenges with microinverters.

Electrical safety on the roof

Enphase IQ8: Safe AC    String Inverter: High-voltage DC

We virtually eliminate the risk of an arc-fault fire on your roof by running only safe AC on the roof.

Modular

Enphase IQ8: YES    String Inverter: NO

The modular microinverter design means you can quickly and easily expand your system as your needs grow.
