Enphase Energy Joins Forces with YHI New Zealand

New distribution partnership adds to expanding Asia-Pacific presence

MELBOURNE, Australia---Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), announced today it has partnered with YHI (New Zealand) Ltd. to distribute its world-leading microinverter-based solar photovoltaic (PV) system to the New Zealand solar installer community. YHI will ship Enphase's products from six warehouses throughout New Zealand.

The YHI partnership means that Enphase Systems are now shipping in 12 countries, although the company has had a solid presence in New Zealand since 2011. Christchurch is the home of Enphase's Asia-Pacific Design and Engineering Centre, staffed by more than 20 specialists.

"We're looking forward to working with YHI on a strong launch into New Zealand," said Nathan Dunn, managing director, Asia-Pacific, Enphase Energy. "New Zealand's solar market holds great potential and has an inherent preference for quality, which fits well with the Enphase value proposition."

Having built a reputation on quality products and distinctive service, it was important for YHI to align with a brand that the company could stand behind confidently.

"We are proud to be partnered with a global leader in innovative solar technology like Enphase," says Chris Talbot, managing director for YHI (New Zealand). "The ease of installation, superior energy production, smart monitoring system, and reliable, safe operation are some of the key reasons we chose to offer Enphase Systems to our customers."

Enphase recently launched its coveted fourth-generation M250 microinverter into the Asia-Pacific region. Backed by a 10-year warranty, the unit is rated at 95.7 percent EU efficiency and pairs with PV modules up to 310W.

The Enphase Microinverter System is available through YHI (New Zealand). To purchase, installers can contact the YHI call centre on freephone 0800 99 3344 or get in touch with their local YHI representative.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
