Enphase Energy Inc., supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, has seen an uptick in Brazil of residential solar energy systems using the company’s IQ7+ and IQ7AM microinverter technology, Enphase said in a press release on Jan. 30.
In 2023, Brazil is expected to increase its solar generation capacity up more than 10 GW, a 52% increase of the country’s current solar generation capacity, according to the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy in the press release.
“Since our introduction into the Brazilian market in 2021, we have grown our installer base to more than 500 – a testament to the rapidly growing demand for clean energy solutions in the country,” said Marco Krapels, Enphase Energy’s vice president of international sales.
Residential homeowners in Brazil are increasingly becoming a bigger target market as they “[look] to save on electricity costs and minimize their environmental footprint,” said Murilo Vidigal, project director at Mavo Engenharia, an installer of Enphase products.
Based in California, Enphase’s microinverter technology harnesses energy from the sun for clients using all-in-one solar, battery and software solutions to make, use, save and sell power using a mobile monitoring app.
The microinverter systems use a system called IG Gateway to connect an Enphase-based solar system to the Enphase app to monitor energy generation and consumption per panel. Customers can use data tracked in their app to oversee insights, operations and system maintenance, as well as better understand energy bills.
“Thanks to our distributor and installer partners, we’re able to bring smart, safe and efficient solar systems to homeowners and businesses across Brazil,” said Krapels.
