Microinverter manufacturer Enphase has expanded its energy services business with the acquisition of operations and maintenance (O&M) firm Next Phase Energy.
The company already has 450MW under management as part of its Enphase Energy Services (EES) business and can now add Next Phase Solar’s client base to that roster.
“By providing customers with proactive O&M services, EES is enabling them to focus on their core business of financing and installing solar systems,” said Paul Nahi, president and CEO, Enphase.
“The acquisition of Next Phase Solar's assets strengthens EES' comprehensive ability to proactively and cost-effectively operate and maintain residential, commercial and utility-scale PV power plants within the US, regardless of manufacturer or brand, and marks Enphase's latest effort to accelerate the mainstream adoption of solar energy,” he added.
Next Phase provides corrective and preventative maintenance, asset management, warranty compliance and cleaning services for EPCs, financers, system owners and equipment manufacturers.
