Enphase Energy, Inc., a global energy technology company and the world’s leading provider of solar microinverters, announced today that its installation partner, RenXSol Ecotech has installed Enphase microinverters in a one megawatt solar plant. Located near Bangalore, India, the solar plant is Enphase’s largest installation in the Asia-Pacific region and one of its largest globally.

Occupying 67,000 square feet over six rooftops in multiple orientations, the landmark installation overcomes shading challenges to power a large, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) company.Powered by 2,858 Enphase Energy™ microinverters, the system is expected to provide more than 15,000MWh of clean power annually to the FMCG company’s cold storage, packaging, baking, and pickling units. RenXSol Ecotech, a leading project developer and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm based in Bangalore, is due to commission the system in December 2017.

“We are seeing a solid uptake of Enphase technology in India, driven by the power purchase agreement (PPA) model,” said Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific. “Enphase thrives in PPA-driven markets due to our unmatched reliability, as well as leading intelligence and control capabilities for commercial and industrial asset managers.”

In addition to reliability, an Enphase Microinverter System also offers enhanced flexibility in cases where a complex system design is required to meet the site’s requirements, allowing installers to utilise every possible space on the rooftop. Also, the system’s ability to produce power in low-light, disbursed light or shaded conditions means it maximises energy harvest even in India’s harsh, dusty environment.

“When dealing with a challenging system design across multiple rooftops, it’s essential to select the right components to avoid detrimental power losses,” said Srinivas Kumar, founder and CEO at RenXSol Ecotech. “The Enphase Microinverter System’s resilience to shading and panel mismatch, its robust design, reliability, and remote diagnostic capabilities makes it perfect for this complex rooftop, and perfect for India in general.”

Supporting approximately 10,000 jobs from neighbouring areas, the facility is used by farmers within a 250-kilometer radius, who process, package and sell their produce there. Ultimately the facility aims to become carbon neutral for the benefit of the surrounding communities, with the system currently offsetting approximately 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
