EnviroGroup installs Australia’s largest grid-connected Enphase microinverter project in conjunction with Yingli Solar

Thursday, Dec 12, 2013

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENPH), today announced that EnviroGroup, a specialist provider of renewable energy products and systems for commercial applications, government clients and residential home owners, has successfully installed Australia’s largest grid-connected solar power system with Enphase microinverters, in conjunction with Yingli Green Energy, known as “Yingli Solar”, at the Glenlyn Aged Care Facility in Glenroy, Victoria.

This 100kW installation is expected to generate over 392kWh of solar energy daily – which is approximately 50 percent of Glenlyn’s electricity requirements – to power the center’s operational and cooling facilities, particularly in periods of peak daytime demand.

EnviroGroup has installed 399 Yingli Solar high efficiency multicrystalline panels with Enphase microinverters attached to each individual panel. The microinverters communicate over existing power lines with the Envoy Communications Gateway, which reports production data to the Enphase Enlighten software platform. Enlighten closely monitors the performance of the entire solar system to ensure it is operating at maximum efficiency. This is an added measure designed to protect the facility’s investment in solar PV.

This installation was designed and configured by EnviroGroup in close consultation with Enphase to meet the highly regulated requirements imposed on aged care facilities. By pairing Enphase microinverters with Yingli Solar PV panels, EnviroGroup expects Glenlyn to achieve annual energy production of 124.5MWh and to reduce its annual carbon emissions by 163 tons a year.

Cameron Munro, CEO of EnviroGroup, said, “Glenlyn Aged Care Facility approached us with very specific requirements as they needed a solar system that could fit within the design of their rooftop, which has limited internal space to locate solar inverters. Having residents in care, we had to complete the installation of the project within a very tight timeframe and without any interruptions to their power supply.
