Enphase Energy Partners With CREATON To Provide Residential Solar Rooftops


Enphase Energy, Inc. supplier of solar microinverters, announced it has collaborated with CREATON GmbH, one of the leading residential roof manufacturers in Europe, to deliver photovoltaic (PV) in-roof systems to residential solar customers throughout Germany.

CREATON, with offices and manufacturing plants located across Germany, offers an extensive range of products for pitched roof solutions, including both clay and concrete roof tiles, and system accessories. Its newly developed PV in-roof systems with Enphase Energy include Enphase IQ 7™ and IQ 7+™ microinverters, along with Enphase Envoy™ communications gateways, which connect the system to the Enphase Enlighten™ monitoring platform and makes per-panel energy monitoring and insights for operations and maintenance easy.

“We believe Enphase's unique value proposition of high-output performance and flexible installation, as well as a safe all-AC system architecture will resonate well with our roofing customers,” said Matthias Meir, head of the PV division at CREATON GmbH. “The demand for residential solar in Germany is growing rapidly, and Enphase products' ease of installation, superior energy production, smart monitoring system, and reliable, safe operation are some of the key reasons we will offer them to our customers."

IQ 7 and IQ 7+ microinverters leverage Enphase's unique software-defined architecture and semiconductor integration for excellent reliability and economies of scale. Enphase microinverters are subjected to a rigorous reliability and quality testing regimen with more than one million hours of power-on testing to ensure exceptional performance under heat, high humidity, salty air, extreme cold, and harsh climate conditions. The Company's microinverters are designed to be long-lived energy assets and are backed by a 25-year warranty.

“We are pleased to collaborate with CREATON to deliver PV rooftop solutions for residential customers in Germany,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “These rooftop solar solutions offer unique advantages, particularly in new build and small residential systems due to the scalable architecture of Enphase microinverters, and are expected to significantly enhance the customer experience in terms of quality and performance.”
