Why is the Enphase M215 So HOT?

Enphase M215 micro-inverter

The newest micro-inverter from Enphase Energy - the M215 - is now available and we believe that this will be one hot product.

We have been fans of Enphase micro-inverters for some time and we have installed numerous Enphase systems, particularly at shady sites.  We liked how the independence of each panel/inverter helped boost energy yield, we were dazzled by the brilliant monitoring abilities of the system, and we were real fans of the 15-year warranty (compared to the standard 10-year warranty on string inverters.)

So why do we think the new model will be such a step up?  First and foremost is the upgrade on the warranty to 25 years!  No other inverter manufacturer offers anything comparable as their standard warranty.  This means that the key components of the array - the solar panels and the inverters - will now have warranties of identical duration.  We believe this is a huge step forward in building client confidence in the fundamental reliability of solar power systems.

Second, the M215 has improved its CEC efficiency rating to 96% making it the match of any of the popular string inverters.

Third, the M215 should be easier to install as it now only requires a single bolt to attach it to the array racking and its new cabling system should allow for a smoother installation process which will help to drive down costs.

Finally, the M215 is compatible with some of the more powerful solar panels out there, such as the Suntech 225.  We believe that the pairing of the Suntech panels with the M215 will be a great fit for many of our residential and smaller commercial clients.

Put it altogether and we believe that the Enphase M215 has the potential to be a real game-changer.  If you have been wondering when would be the right time to add solar to your home or business, the M215 is one more reason why the right time to add solar is NOW!
