Enphase Installer – Empowering you.

Awarded Top Enphase Installer 2022

The Enphase Home Energy Solution brings you solar, storage, and powerful monitoring software, all from one company. It’s built to work together, with continuous, seamless communication, for a fully integrated system that’s far more than solar – it’s truly a smart home.

Powerful technology at the heart of the Enphase micro inverter system.

Solar panels may be on top, but it’s the inverter that does all the real work. Choosing the right inverter technology is the most critical decision you’ll make when going solar. Enphase micro inverters are the most advanced inverter technology on the market, which means higher production, greater reliability, and unmatched warranty and safety.

True story from Rae Beaver of Bishop’s Stortford  ∗∗∗∗∗

There are so many companies getting on the “Solar Bandwagon”, it is getting increasingly difficult for the average person to know a good one from a bad one. Installations are only as good as the electrician installing them and NOT the salesman who took your order. Having had a really poor experience with a previous installer, The Solar People sent their “A” team. It was clear from the outset that THEY were more than competent and knew exactly what they were doing. They have done a fantastic job and have completed a highly professional installation, correcting all the bad done before them. The only sad thing is that I did not find them in the first place.

How the micro inverter system works

Micro inverters

The solar panels on your roof absorb daylight in the form of DC power (direct current). A micro inverter, tucked beneath each panel then converts the DC power to AC (alternating current). This is the form of electricity that can be used in your home.

Envoy

The Enphase Envoy is the brains of the system. It collects information from each micro inverter and delivers it to our software called Enlighten. The communication goes both ways, allowing for remote updates and performance monitoring.

How the Microinverter System works

Microinverters

The solar panels on your roof absorb daylight in the form of direct current (DC) power. A microinverter, tucked beneath each panel, converts that DC power to alternating current (AC). This is the form of electricity that can be used in your home.

Envoy

The Envoy is the brains of the system. It gathers information from each microinverter and delivers it to Enlighten software. It also communicates in the other direction, letting us know of any issues with your system and delivering remote updates.

The smarter choice in solar technology.

Higher production, best savings

Enphase micro inverters are proven to produce more energy than other technologies.

  • Micro inverters operate independently, so each panel performs to its fullest. One shaded or dirty panel won’t affect the rest of the system.
  • Burst technology lets microinverters produce more power at dawn, dusk, and in low-light conditions, for a longer solar day.

More reliable

Because they function independently, microinverters are inherently more reliable as there is no single point of failure in the system. Plus, we’re obsessive about quality, and our products reflect that with a 25 year warranty.

  • If one panel goes down, the others won’t go down with it.
  • Enphase microinverters undergo the most rigorous product testing in the industry.
  • We stand by our products with the industry’s highest warranties. 25 years.

Safer

Microinverters are safer than other inverter technologies.

  • An all-AC system means no high-voltage DC power on your roof.
  • Enphase Microinverters are commonly chosen for schools, since they meet even the strictest government safety requirements.

More cost effective – use an authorised Enphase micro inverter installer

In addition to the greater energy savings from higher production, Enphase microinverters are simply a better long-term investment.

  • Enphase microinverters come with a 25-year warranty; string inverters need to be replaced at least once in the lifetime of the system.
  • Streamlined components make for quicker and less costly installations.
  • High-quality materials and remote problem-solving save money on repairs.

True story from Marcus of Suffolk ∗∗∗∗∗

We are really pleased with our installation of 112 ground mounted solar panels in a field near our house. The installation went well and three of the latest Enphase batteries have been added. The Enphase/Enlighten App is really easy to use.

Higher production, no matter what nature brings.

Maybe your roof isn’t shaded, so you think microinverters aren’t for you. Well, think again.

First, every system experiences some shading at some point during the day from cloud cover and Enphase tolerates shading better than others.

Second, shading is only a part of the story. Think dirt, leaves, scratches, snow, panel degradation..

Third, even if you keep your panels spotlessly clean, wear and tear won’t happen uniformly, and temperature differences occur naturally. No matter what, you’ll deal with panels operating at different levels of efficiency (an occurrence known as module mismatch). And if you’ve got microinverters, you’ll maximise your production in spite of it.

Why is the Solar PV inverter so important.

A system that fits your needs, now and later.
Always use an authorised Enphase installer.

Added benefits of using an authorised Enphase installer. The Enphase System is flexible, so you can design a system to fit today’s budget and energy needs, and expand it later as your needs evolve. Want to add more panels, or a solar battery? With microinverters, it’s not a problem.

What our customers say about us.

John Sparkes from Crewe ∗∗∗∗∗

Wasn’t sure whether to go for solar battery storage or if I would benefit from them. After conversations with Andrew I decided on 3x 3.3kw batteries. I did think about 4 batteries but Andrew assured me that 3 would be sufficient and I could always add to it. That was reassuring as he didn’t try to sell me something I may not need. The installation was organised within the next ten days. Mark and his colleague arrived on the agreed date and the installation was completed in a couple of hours. They helped me download the app and they monitored it for the next couple of weeks and kept me updated. I’ve had a couple of queries about the system since it was fitted and found the after sales services second to none. Brilliant, nothing is too much trouble. The service and expertise has been exceptional. One of the best companies I have dealt with.

Lisa Cowen from Richmond ∗∗∗∗∗

Hello Great people from the Sales man to the Electricians and all the people inbetween. The product will show its true colours in spring and summer but even now there is activity. Aftersales service is also great, with the boss even communicating with me regarding getting everything I need to set up a new electicity tarrif, any he is funny as well 🙂 Recommend this company and its product to anyone who is thinking of getting solar panels.

Jane Harris from Teddington ∗∗∗∗∗

Really brilliant quick service from everyone concerned. Very professional sales expertise and installation. The installers were particularly great at their job which left me very confident in the outcome. I now have solar batteries that are working extremely well. Can’t recommend them enough.

Bob Hobbs from Sheffield ∗∗∗∗∗

The 3rd of October 2023 was the first anniversary of our AlphaESS B3 battery installation, considering how bad the weather was in the peak summer months in South Yorkshire we are extremely pleased at having hit approx. 98% of your quotation estimate. Coupled with Octopus Flex rates it has been a good year for us.

Stephen Spike from Chelmsford ∗∗∗∗∗

These guys are true professionals. All work was performed on schedule, cleanly and exactly as agreed. They provided a very competitive quote using the best and up-to-date tech.
100% would recommend these guys to anyone.
Also, a big thanks to Andy, who’s communication and knowledge has set the bar.

Phil Jordan from Swindon ∗∗∗∗∗

Andy and the team have been exceptional. I have had my 20+ Solar Panels and Battery installation for over a year now and every aspect has been first class.
Friendly, honest, supportive and diligent – couldn’t recommend them any higher.

Elizabeth Linkletter from Newcastle upon Tyne ∗∗∗∗∗

We have had solar panels for a number of years and knowing that battery storage has improved greatly wanted to add storage to our solar panels. Andrew responded to our request for a price very quickly and once we accepted the quotation delivery and installation happened within a few days. Tom arrived with the batteries and 4 hours later everything was working. Tom explained everything to two elderly folk very clearly and made sure we understood how to read the app. Andrew followed this up the next morning saying he was happy to answer any questions we had.
Great service, thank you.

Mascha Collier from Hitchin ∗∗∗∗∗

A very positive experience all round. The company came to our house instead of doing a remote quote, which gave confidence that the proposed system was right for us. Any queries were dealt with very quickly by Andy by phone or email. The installation process was well organised and took one day (20 panels on two roofs and a battery in the garage). Scaffolding was erected on the morning of the installation and taken down the next day. All the work was done neatly and everything was left tidy. Two minor jobs could not be completed on the day of the installation – Andy ensured these items were done within a week. We’re now happily enjoying solar-generated electricity and would absolutely use this company again.

FAQ's

Yes you can.
The micro inverters will work just fine without an Envoy but you will not be able to monitor the system, warranty issues could arise and under G98 / G99 regulations a Envoy must be installed to all grid tied systems in the UK

If you have a WPS button on your router then it could not be simpler.

1 – Press and hold the WPS button on your wireless router for two seconds. On many routers, the WPS button flashes at this point.

2 – Return to the Envoy. Press and hold the Envoy WPS button below the phone icon for 5 seconds. WPS mode will not be enabled if the button is held for less than 5 seconds. When WPS mode is enabled the LED next to the phone icon will flash green.

If it lights up solid green then you’re back online.

Your system now needs to re-sync its data, which can take anywhere from an hour to a few days depending on how long your system was offline.

What to do if the connection was not successful.
If the top LED does not light up solid green, the connection may have timed out before you completed steps 1 and 2 above. Walk through both steps again, trying to complete all steps within a two-minute window.

If you are unable to re-establish a wi-fi connection using the steps above, try to establish a connection using Manual Network Setup. See the video, right, for simple to follow instructions.

Enphase microinverters are used in over 100 countries around the world. From Australia to Alaska and everywhere in between.
This means that they operate in very cold, very hot and very humid climates — without fail.

How does Enphase achieve this?
Enphase really puts their microinverters through the most rigorous tests. Every micro generation is put through 1,000,000 (yes, that’s 1 million) power-on hours of testing before it is released. This testing includes cycling microinverters from -40°C to 85°C over 1,000 times in specialised test centre.
They are exposed to heat and dampness for hours on end, and they even get dropped from a hight of 2 meters multiple times. Once Enphase has established the microinverters survive all that, and don’t drop any of their performance, they go into production.

But Enphase doesn’t stop there.
Each day microinverters are taken from the production line and tested at Enphase labs in California and New Zealand. This rigorous, continuous testing ensures that Enphase microinverters stand the test of time.

The Electric Power Research Institute agrees – string inverters fail at greater rates than microinverters.
String inverters have to be replaced at least once throughout the life of a system. In fact, string inverters are responsible for 50% of all solar lifecycle maintenance costs.

You have just found one.
We have installed over 8000 Enphase microinverters with complete success. 

We are a Platinum installer and Beta tester for Enphase. Enphase will not release a new product to the market place without first Beta testing on live installations, with the customers consent, of course.

Enphase micro’s work perfectly with any AC coupled battery storage system.
Alternatively, the all new Enphase IQ5P battery is now available in the UK. The perfect partner for the Enphase micro’s. It makes perfect sense to have all your solar inverters and batteries from one manufacturer.

Enlighten is the app / web browser name for you to access. Once installed you can exactly what your solar panels are producing as well as battery information, grid consumption and export.

The Envoy is the little black box (about the size of an A5 note book) that communicates with the microinverters and gives you access to all the system information. It also holds grid profiles to ensure your system is DNO compliant.
The Envoy has now been renamed to The Gateway.
