Enphase Energy and Vivint Solar Renew Inverter Solution Agreement

Vivint Solar chooses Enphase as 2013 inverter supplier

PETALUMA, Calif.--Enphase Energy (Nasdaq: ENPH) today announced the renewal of its relationship with Vivint Solar, Inc. to be their inverter solution for 2013. Vivint Solar is an affiliate of Vivint Inc., a leading provider of home technology services in North America.


"We are delighted to continue building off our powerful strategic relationship with Vivint Solar. For over a year-and-a-half, our advanced inverter technology, coupled with Vivint Solar's unique go-to-market, has helped accelerate them toward their goal of becoming the top U.S. installer of residential rooftop solar systems," said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of worldwide sales and field operations of Enphase Energy.

Vivint Solar customers save money on energy through a power purchase agreement (PPA) in which customers agree to buy the power generated by a solar photovoltaic system installed on their home, at rates that are generally lower than their local utility. In exchange, Vivint Solar designs, installs, operates and maintains the system with no additional out-of-pocket costs for the customers. This business model provides homeowners the benefits of renewable solar energy without a large, upfront investment.

"We are focused on nationwide expansion of our affordable solar offering, and we adopted Enphase early on because of the value their inverter solution delivers," said Dan Rock, vice president of installs of Vivint Solar. "Enphase inverters provide flexibility to Vivint Solar's installation crews and provide Vivint Solar's customers with more efficient solar energy systems, resulting in enhanced savings to our customers."

Vivint Solar currently operates in California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Washington D.C. For more information on Vivint Solar's products and services, visit www.vivintsolar.com.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
