Sunrun and Enphase Energy Sign Strategic Supply Agreement

Enphase will begin providing smart solar microinverter systems to Sunruns direct installation services business

SAN FRANCISCO & PETALUMA, Calif.--Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), the leading energy management technology company for the solar industry, and Sunrun, the largest dedicated residential solar company in the U.S., have entered into a strategic supply agreement to provide Enphase® solar energy systems to Sunrun for its home solar installation business.


While AEE Solar and Sunruns network of Certified Partners have long sold and installed Enphase systems, this agreement marks the first time that Enphase will provide its module level power electronics (MLPE) systems to Sunruns direct installation services business. Enphase will continue to work with Sunrun across its multi-channel platform, strengthening its relationship with Sunruns wholesale distribution business, AEE Solar, and collaborating on operational efficiency-focused product development with SnapNrack, Sunruns solar photovoltaic (PV) racking and mounting systems group.

"The market-proven, highly reliable Enphase technology will help Sunrun continue to execute its strategy around installation efficiency and system performance," said Paul Winnowski, chief operating officer of Sunrun. "Adding Enphases high-quality solar energy systems to our current product suite enables Sunrun to deliver best-in-class service and long-term savings to our customers. It is a great partnership between two market innovators."

"As the pioneer in providing solar as a service to homeowners, Sunrun recognizes that Enphase offers a smart, differentiated and financially compelling approach to clean energy generation that delivers cash flow savings and excellent system performance over the life of the project," said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase Energy. "We look forward to working together with Sunrun not only as a preferred supplier, but as a partner in delivering intelligent energy solutions."
