Enphase Energy has claimed its microinverter installations increased 62% in the US during the first nine months of the year compared to the same period a year ago.
Based on recent market data from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the company said that US residential PV market growth overall had increased 49% in the same period, suggesting that its microinverter technology has gained further market share over conventional string inverters.
“Based on these numbers, Enphase continues to grow its market share in the overall US residential market, with a great performance in the California market,” said Kris Sennesael, CFO of Enphase.
Enphase also noted that installed units increased in California, its strongest domestic market, by over 200% on a year-over-year basis, while recent figures from SEIA point to Californian residential market having installed 99MW during the third quarter, up 85% on a year-over-year basis.
According to IHS, total microinverter shipments are set to reach to around 500MW in 2013, but will increase to 2.1GW in 2017.
