Enphase Energy Partners with New Energy Consultants in Puerto Rico

Partnership addresses growing demand for affordable solar energy in Puerto Rico and Caribbean markets

PETALUMA, Calif. & SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico-Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH) and Puerto Rico's New Energy Consultants announced today that they have entered into a strategic partnership to bring affordable solar energy to residential and commercial customers in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean markets. The partnership calls for Enphase® Microinverter Systems to be installed in 100 percent of residential systems deployed by New Energy in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Local distributor Warren del Caribe, a Sonepar company, will provide logistics.


"We want to align ourselves with the world leader in microinverter technology," said Vale Aldamuy, president of New Energy. "The Enphase system offers greater productivity and efficiency in renewable energy equipment, a solid warranty, easy installation and lower overall cost of ownership. This partnership with Enphase Energy will help accelerate solar adoption in our region."

"As a dynamic and fast-growing company in the region, New Energy has been a visionary in leading the early adoption of AC solar in Puerto Rico and championing the Enphase Microinverter System for several years," said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of sales, marketing and support for Enphase. "We are committed to working with local partners like New Energy and Warren del Caribe to support the development of the Puerto Rican and Caribbean solar markets."

"Warren del Caribe is proud to be an Enphase authorized distributor," said Kris Koch, business development manager at Warren del Caribe. "We are committed to providing the best microinverter solutions in the marketplace and are continually expanding and improving our solutions. Enphase's microinverter system is especially beneficial in the Caribbean region because it is compatible with multiple grid types and parameters that would prove challenging for any other single microinverter."

Because of its modularity, simplicity of installation, advanced monitoring and remote diagnostics, the Enphase Microinverter System brings increased operational efficiency and scalability to rapidly growing solar companies like New Energy. Since many solar installers throughout the Caribbean realize the advantages of working with a single microinverter SKU, distributors such as Warren de Caribe can lower their operating costs thanks to simplified logistics and inventory management.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
