Authorised distributors for Enphase Energy are now accepting orders for the Enphase AC Battery — a scalable, modular energy storage system — from installers in Australia and New Zealand.

Using the Enphase AC Battery, home owners can achieve sustainable self-consumption or store solar energy generated for use at times when grid-supplied energy rates are at their peak. Enphase’s partner network of over 1000 installers in Australia and New Zealand will to be the first in the world to have access to the product, with the first global shipment expected to arrive in Australia in August.

“Enphase received strong interest from home owners in Australia and New Zealand when we announced the Enphase AC Battery in October 2015,” said Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific. “The feedback we’ve received to date from our partners has been extremely encouraging, and I am delighted that Australia and New Zealand will be the first region in the world where we will be selling the Enphase Home Energy Solution.”

The Enphase AC Battery is suitable for any home, regardless of the brand of inverters or solar panels used. Unlike most other home batteries, an upgrade of the existing solar system’s inverter is not required. This makes the battery suitable for home owners looking to add energy storage to their existing solar PV system, with Dunn noting that “we expect the initial demand to be driven by installers looking to retrofit existing residential solar PV systems”.

Solar installers can order the battery through Enphase’s authorised distributors in Australia — AC Solar Warehouse, One Stop Warehouse, RFI, Solar + Solutions and SunEdison — as well as Solar Partners NZ and YHI in New Zealand. Home owners can be connected with local Enphase installers via www.enphase.com/au/quote.
