Microinverter manufacturer, Enphase Energy, has announced its entrance into the UK solar energy market after appointing a UK country manager and signing up to the British Photovoltaic Association (BPVA).
California-based Enpahse Energy will be launching Enphase Energy UK, which will service England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland with a locally-based technical, sales, marketing and training team. The company has chosen sales and management veteran, Paul Nightingale, to head up the new UK operation. Nightingale has previously worked as UK manager for Danfoss Solar Inverters, where he successfully oversaw the launch of the brand into the UK market.
“Enphase technology delivers a powerful combination of performance and safety benefits, plus lifetime monitoring, making Enphase an ideal solution for the UK solar market,” said Nightingale. “My focus is on creating a sustainable business for Enphase in the UK that is recognised for quality, innovation, service and reliability.”
“Entry into the UK is another step toward successfully executing on our global expansion strategy,” said Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy. “We see strong market potential in the UK and are committed to deliver the quality products, training and support that has established Enphase as a trusted brand in solar.”
“We are delighted that Enphase Energy has made the decision to enter the UK market at this exciting time,” said Reza Shaybani, Chairman of BPVA. “Enphase Energy’s long term vision and smart technology will play a significant role in the market. The BPVA has created the platform for sustainable growth in the UK Solar PV market, which has attracted technology leaders from across the globe to the UK, resulting in significant inward investment.”
Enphase’s UK launch continues the company’s European expansion, after opening offices in Lyon, France and Milan, Italy. Those interested in UK career opportunities can check for vacancies here.
