This article will tell you more about Enphase, their incredible products, and how you can get your hands on them.
Let’s get started.
Who owns Enphase?
Enphase was founded in 2006 by Raghu Belur and Martin Fornage with the simple goal of transforming how we harness solar energy.
In 2008, Enphase installed the first revolutionary microinverter-based solar system that they pioneered. And within 3 years, they managed to sell over a million more microinverters all over the world.
Today, Enphase has shipped more than 39 million microinverters to all parts of the world, and provides solar-powered energy solutions to their consumers, making it an industry leader in everything solar.
Where are Enphase products manufactured?
Enphase designs the products themselves in the USA but outsources the manufacturing to different 3rd party manufacturing firms.
The microinverters are designed by Enphase’s R&D engineers in California. But their assembly takes place in China. Nonetheless, these microinverters are ARRA compliant.
The rest of their products are outsourced to various companies. For instance:
- Flextronics International Ltd assembles and tests the AC batteries and microinverters.
- Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG have been tasked with the manufacturing of Enphase’s cables.
- ELIIY Power Co., Ltd. has developed the formula used to develop the battery solution for Enphase’s smart AC storage batteries.
Does Enphase make solar panels?
While Enphase currently does not manufacture its own solar panels – or modules, as they are called – it partners with various suppliers that produce these modules already coupled with the microinverter into one single, 6th generation unit.

With more than 39 million microinverters installed across 1.7 million homes in over 130 countries, it’s easy to see the popularity of Enphase when it comes to microinverter-powered, smart energy solutions.
What products does Enphase sell?
While microinverters are what Enphase is known for, they offer a range of products from modems and cables to accessories and even EV chargers.
By investing in solar energy, you would continue to receive increasing returns for over 30 years. With inflation and the rising cost of power, your savings will be compounded every fiscal year.
1. IQ7X Microinverter
Price: $182.00, comes with a 25-year warranty!
This improved design is the next step in Enphase’s revolutionary microinverter technology. Like other microinverters, it converts the DC into AC, but with an astounding 97.5% CEC efficiency.
This microinverter has been tested for over a million hours, has a class II double-insulating enclosure, and can be remotely updated to optimise it to the changing requirements of the grid.
With its seamless integration into 96-cell modules, Enphase IQ batteries, and the Enlighten app, this microinverter is bringing about a new age of solar energy.
2. IQ Battery
Price: $3000 – 9000, come with a 10-year warranty!
This smart battery is an AC storage unit that gives you safety, reliability, and flexibility unlike any other. Along with your microinverter-coupled modules, these batteries will help you harness clean, scalable solar energy.
Like the microinverters, this battery is easy-to-install and is connected with the Enlighten app for remote accessibility. A very stable LPF (lithium phosphate iron) matrix is used for making the batteries, providing you with the utmost safety.
The modular configuration of this battery allows you to install as many as you want to meet your requirements. Moreover, the battery can be easily coupled with a fuel-powered generator which makes it highly reliable in case of an emergency power outage.
3. IQ System Controller
Price: $1707.00, comes with a 10-year warranty!
This controller automatically detects a power failure and switches your home from the power supply grid to the backup power.
This seamless connection of your home with the solar PV, the IQ batteries, and the grid helps ensure a safe energy transition while taking stress off your mind.
4. IQ Gateway
Price: $518.00, comes with a 5-year warranty!
The IQ gateway helps you manage and maintain your solar system by providing real-time data of solar energy produced.
By providing production metering, monitoring your optimal consumption, and having the capability to integrate with IQ batteries seamlessly, the Enphase IQ Gateway offers you a one-in-all energy management platform.

Check Out Our Guides to Solar Inverters
We have a series of unique guides to solar, solar finance, batteries and more, if you are looking to do more in-depth research into solar inverters check the below:
The solar inverter is a very important part of your solar power system: photovoltaic panels generate direct current (DC) when they receive sunlight, but your home appliances run with alternating current (AC) like that from the grid. In simple terms, the solar inverter is the device in charge of converting DC power to AC.
There has never been a better time to switch to solar in Australia. Some households can even switch for $0. As the focus grows on solar energy, so does the list of available equipment. The solar inverter is like the heart of a solar system, and there are a number of considerations that go into choosing a suitable solar inverter.
Here is a common rule of thumb to help differentiate between single-phase vs three-phase inverters. Residential homes will usually use a single-phase power supply or inverter, while commercial or industrial facilities will use three-phase supplies.
Solar inverter error codes notify you of a situation threatening the normal operation of your solar power system. Many different things can go wrong and disrupt electricity generation from a solar PV system. The inverter will detect it and generate corresponding error codes to notify you.
