Enphase Expands IQ8 Microinverter Deployments in Netherlands
Enphase Energy has announced that installers of Enphase® products in the Netherlands have seen an increase in deployments of residential solar energy systems powered by IQ8™ Microinverters, following the product’s expansion to international markets in November 2022.
IQ8 Microinverters are the smartest, most powerful Enphase microinverters yet, with a 97.2 percent efficiency score based on European Union efficiency standards. IQ8 Microinverters are designed to match the latest generation of high output solar modules, delivering superior reliability, safety, and quality for residential solar systems. The IQ8 family of products offered in the Netherlands includes two types of software-defined microinverters, IQ8M™ and IQ8+™, which feature a peak output AC power of 330VA and 300VA, respectively. The microinverters are designed to seamlessly pair with a full range of solar modules up to 480W DC and come with a 25-year limited warranty.
“Rising energy costs continue to motivate homeowners in the Netherlands to make the switch to solar energy,” said Luc Janssen, director-owner at Saluma Solar B.V., an Enphase Silver level installer. “IQ8 Microinverters unlock exceptional solar panel performance so that homeowners can reduce their reliance on the grid and maximize their energy savings.”
“IQ8 Microinverters are engineered to perform and built to last,” said Stefan Bezuijen, director at Zonnepanelen Zuid Nederland B.V., an Enphase Silver level installer. “IQ8 Microinverters leverage Enphase’s industry-leading modular design, offering homeowners both reliability and scalability, even for the most complex roof designs.”
“Solar energy systems powered by IQ8 Microinverters are providing clean, reliable energy to homeowners across the Netherlands,” said Willem Tolsma, director at Thermo Energie Heiloo, an Enphase Silver level installer. “Our customers also enjoy the ability to monitor their systems and track the energy production.”
Enphase microinverter systems integrate with the IQ™ Gateway, which when connected to the internet, connects Enphase-based solar systems to the Enphase® App monitoring platform and helps make per-panel energy monitoring and insights for operations and maintenance easy.
“Enphase is a global leader in home energy management technology, and the IQ8 Microinverter is yet another shining example of its solar innovation,” said Leon Vermeule, owner at Flexizon, an Enphase Silver level installer. “We share Enphase’s dedication to providing homeowners with superior products and customer service.”
“Our rapid growth in the Netherlands is largely due to our network of dedicated installer partners in the region who deeply understand the benefits of our technology and how it meets their customers’ needs,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “As demand for solar in the Netherlands continues to increase, we’re committed to helping the country reach its clean energy goals with best-in-class products and services for homeowners.”
