Enphase Energy, Inc, a global energy technology company and the world's leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, announced today that it has started shipping IQ8™ Microinverters, with peak output AC power of 384 W, in Germany to support newer high-powered solar modules.
The new IQ8 Microinverters are designed to maximize energy production and can manage a continuous DC current of 14 amperes, supporting higher powered solar modules through increased energy harvesting. The three new microinverters – IQ8MC™, IQ8AC™, and IQ8HC™ – feature a peak output power of 330 W, 366 W, and 384 W, respectively and are designed to seamlessly pair with a full range of solar modules up to 560 W DC. All IQ8 Microinverters activated in Germany come with a 25-year warranty from Enphase.
“The new IQ8 Microinverter allows us to design higher-powered home energy systems for increased energy independence,” said Christian Quadt, CEO at Quadt Energy. “Enphase’s simplistic yet sophisticated microinverter design makes system installation easy and customizable to meet our customers’ varying energy needs.”
