ADT Solar says it is exclusively offering Enphase IQ8 Microinverters as part of its comprehensive home energy solution. You may remember that ADT Solar is formerly Sunpro Solar, a residential solar-plus-storage service provider working across 22 states.
This announcement follows ADT Solar and Enphase Energy’s recent expansion agreement to include Enphase IQ Batteries. The Enphase Energy System, powered by IQ8 Microinverters and IQ Batteries.
“A growing number of customers nationwide are looking for a comprehensive home energy solution that unlocks their ability to generate, store, and control their own clean energy,” said Brian Lynch, senior vice president of sales at ADT Solar. “We can now power parts of their home during a daytime grid outage, with or without a battery. With IQ8, we can design and build a system that fits our customers’ specific needs and allows them to expand the system as their needs change.”
ADT Solar will use IQ8 Microinverters across all sales configurations, including grid-tied solar, sunlight-only backup, and solar plus battery storage. IQ8 can form a microgrid during a power outage, using only sunlight to provide backup power without requiring a battery. For homeowners who want a battery, there are no sizing restrictions on pairing Enphase IQ Batteries with the IQ8 solar system.
IQ8 Microinverters also include the Sunlight Jump Start feature, which can restart a home energy system using sunlight only after prolonged grid outages that result in a fully depleted battery. This eliminates the need for a manual restart of the system and gives homeowners even greater resilience.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
