American microinverter manufacturer Enphase Energy has added two new products to its lineup for 2014.

New hardware includes a Wi-Fi option for the ‘Envoy Communications Gateway’ and ‘M215’ microinverter with ‘Integrated Ground’ for faster and more flexible installs. ‘MyEnlighten’ and ‘Enlighten Manager,’ are also made available to further improve consumer's experience and the installer's management of their fleet of systems.

Based on Enphase's fourth-generation microinverter platform with 96.5% CEC efficiency, the new M215 includes Integrated Ground technology that eliminates the need for a grounding electrode conductor (GEC) to be attached to each microinverter, providing both labour and materials savings, according to the company.

A Wi-Fi option for greater flexibility when choosing where to locate the Envoy Communication Gateway has also been introduced. This new option simplifies connectivity of Enphase Microinverters to Enlighten's web-based software when there is a wireless router on premise.

All systems reporting through the Envoy are visible in the web-based Enlighten software platform. Solar professionals can now offer customers a new interface option, MyEnlighten, which has been specifically designed for the educational and informational needs of solar homeowners.

Commenting on the launch of the new products, Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy said: “With the addition of these new products, we continue to simplify the installer experience with Enphase’s innovative microinverter system. Our position as the leader in microinverter systems has never been stronger.”

The new products will be available from January 2014 onwards.
