Enphase Unveils IQ8 Commercial Microinverters: Simplifying Small-Scale Solar Systems

Enphase first introduced the world to microinverters in 2008. These compact devices were a stark contrast to the bulkier string inverters, attaching directly to each solar panel instead of connecting a bunch of panels via DC cable.

While microinverters offer a lot of benefits, their higher cost and more intricate setup have traditionally limited their use to residential solar systems. In larger projects, the necessity of installing a microinverter on each panel adds to the overall complexity and increases the risk of maintenance troubles.

The newly unveiled IQ8 Commercial Enphase Microinverters are created to overcome these hurdles. They simplify the installation processes for small commercial solar projects, enhance energy output, and offer top-notch monitoring. Additionally, they are versatile enough to work with a wide range of solar panels, from 54-cell to 144-cell types, and handle power from 320 W to a hefty 640 W.

Enphase's Distributed Architecture Simplifies Design and Boosts Energy Capture

A standout feature of the new Enphase microinverter system is its distributed architecture which simplifies the design process and maximizes energy capture, especially in tight or shade-spotted spaces. The system includes the IQ Gateway Commercial 2, a web-connected gateway that sends updates remotely and integrates seamlessly with the Enphase App to monitor production. Another highlight is the Enphase Kiosk Software which offers a real-time display of system efficiency.

Enphase invertor provides a generous 25-year warranty for its new microinverters in the United States and Canada, along with a 12-year warranty in Mexico.

Jason Szumlansky, owner of Florida Solar Design Group, praised the product: “Enphase commercial microinverters are a game changer — simplifying installation, improving energy harvest, and satisfying client requirements. Our first project was successful and we found that commissioning a new Enphase commercial system is as simple as commissioning a residential installation.”

Enphase energy is now accepting orders for its commercial microinverters from distributors, with plans to begin shipping by the end of 2023. A larger-scale distribution, directly from U.S. factories, is expected in early 2024.
