Solar microinverter supplier Enphase Energy has partnered with one of the largest Indian manufacturers Waaree Energies to produce an AC solar module for the Indian PV market.
Under this partnership, Waaree will offer its monocrystalline solar PV modules with Enphase microinverters attached to the back of its modules.
This stands as the first AC solar module partnership that Enphase Energy has established in India. The Waaree Enphase AC modules will be assembled and shipped directly from Waaree’s PV module factory, located in Surat.
Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific, said: “Enphase Energy is the first global microinverter technology company to partner with Waaree to integrate our technology onto their solar modules.
“This is a truly exciting opportunity as it will allow us to extend our presence in India with a market leader in solar modules. Enphase and Waaree share the same philosophy of delivering solar solutions built on innovative technology and quality. Together, we will work toward delivering more affordable solar power to commercial and residential customers in India.”
Hitesh Doshi, chairman and managing director at Waaree Energies, added: "The attachment of Waaree solar PV modules with the Enphase microinverter system is a significant win for installers and customers. Not only will they enjoy the quality and performance of industry leading products, our AC solar modules will also be easier and faster to install.
“We are delighted to be working with Enphase Energy with its strong heritage in energy technology and continued development of quality microinverters that suit India’s unique climate and weather conditions.”
