Enphase already has a platform where installers can use tools to design, permit, install, monitor and maintain solar and battery systems, it said, noting the acquisition of SolarLeadFactory further builds on this toolkit by adding lead generation functions to the platform.

“For the past two years, we have executed on our installer digital platform strategy with the acquisitions of Sofdesk for solar design software, DIN’s solar business for proposal and permitting services, 365 Pronto for O&M platform software, and now SolarLeadFactory for high-quality lead generation,” said Badri Kothandaraman, president and CEO of Enphase Energy.

SolarLeadFactory CEO Clayton Cornell said the company could help reduce installers’ customer acquisition costs, which are high in the US, and that by leveraging Enphase’s resources it could “rapidly accelerate improvements in our lead qualification and conversion efforts”.

Last month, Enphase posted strong financial results for Q4 2021 that showed substantial revenue growth and a 53% jump in orders of its IQ batteries, compared with the previous quarter. In response to the surge in demand for batteries, it has added extra capacity to its facilities in Mexico and India.

Meanwhile, having completed its entry into the electric vehicle sector, Enphase is accelerating efforts to develop bi-directional charging to offer a package that benefits homeowners and its installer partners while easing pressure on the grid.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
