Enphase Energy has just released their revolutionary, third generation micro-inverter, the M215. Its fully digital architecture incorporates the latest innovations in custom microchip and advanced circuit design to deliver 96 percent CEC efficiency. Enphase Energy sets itself apart from any other inverter on the market with the M215’s exceptional low voltage performance.
The unit maintains its high level of efficiency even as panel input voltage drops below 20 percent, greatly improving low light performance. Its direct current input peak power ranges from 22 to 36 volts, yet the unit has been tested to perform well at input voltages as low as 16 volts and up to a maximum of 45 volts.
Enphase Energy designed the Microinverter M215 to only be compatible with 60-cell modules as most of the panels on the market fall in this category. The highly efficient micro-inverter is available in single phase (240V), and three phase (208V) configurations. The unit is extremely lightweight and easy to install featuring its patented trunk drop cabling system.
Enphase Energy has been a trusted name in the solar energy industry, having played a major role in pioneering micro-inverter technology. The concept of micro-inverters has greatly improved overall system reliability by eliminating the single failure point in central inverter systems. The company proudly stands behind the M215 with a solid 25-year limited warranty.
Enphase Energy has set the industry standard when it comes to monitoring with Enlighten’s seamless design architecture. Utilizing the Envoy communications gateway (see pricing below), Enphase Energy’s Enlighten™ monitoring service uses advanced powerline communications technology to stay in touch with each micro-inverter without additional wiring or wireless equipment. System owners can easily monitor their array’s performance data via the wall mounted Envoy display, or from any smart-phone with an Internet connection.
Enphase Energy is proud to offer its Enlighten monitoring service as a standard offering for the lifetime of your solar system at no extra charge. The company is constantly updating and revising its software to meet the needs of customers and ever changing market demands.
Enphase's 25-year warranty is only transferable to a different owner as long as the Microinverter remains installed at the originally installed end user location. Because of this, Wholesale Solar cannot accept any returns on M215 inverters or Enlighten Monitoring Units once they have been registered with Enphase.
