REA Solar has been working on micro inverter technology with Enphase Solar for over 10
years in Brisbane and Australia. The M series micro inverter by Enphase was first
showcased at Solar Power International held in Orlando Florida in 2012 and our Director
Michael Mrowka was there to meet with Enphase at the event. He was amazed by the
Enphase micro inverter technology and the unique benefits it could provide REA Solar
This was a historic meeting as it began the discussions to bring Enphase micro inverters to
Australia. REA Solar then began testing micro inverters and developing a roadmap here in
Brisbane Australia to reduce the capital cost and make them competitive with conventional
solar inverter technology.
As REA Solar were working with Enphase to get the product certified for use in Australia we
experimented with other micro inverter brands that were already certified here. REA Solar
worked with many micro inverter manufacturers such as I-Energy, APS, Renesola and NSP
however there were issues with the product mainly relating to the communication and
monitoring platforms of the micro inverters. REA Solar were the only company in Australia
and Brisbane at that time installing micro inverters so we had to problem solve a lot of the
issues ourselves with the exception of APS who assisted in resolving the micro inverter
This was due to the fact that string inverters only show you overall solar performance as the
panels are connected in series and the micro inverter gives you the ability to see the panel’s
individual performance so there is a lot more data to collect and display. In addition to this,
reactive power control was introduced as a mandatory requirement and many micro inverter
manufacturers could not get this feature to work.
Enphase on the other hand were the world leader in micro inverter technology boasting the
world's lowest failure rate for solar inverters and featured advanced technology that could
easily deploy rapid shutdown and many other grid agnostic features.
In 2015 after years of rigorous testing in Australia Enphase finally entered the Australian
market and REA Solar became one of the first solar installation partners of Enphase in
Australia and have now installed more Enphase micro inverter systems in Brisbane and
Redlands City than any other solar company. REA Solar is the leading Platinum Installer for
Enphase in Queensland and continue to work closely with the Enphase Engineering team to
improve the micro inverter technology and maximise the solar performance from our industry
leading solar panel systems.
INDIVIDUAL PANEL PERFORMANCE
Enphase micro inverters contain a maximum power point tracker for every single solar panel which give them the ability to maximise the performance of each solar panel independently.
This gurantees the highest energy yield from each solar panel and maximises total system output equating to more energy savings.
READY FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW
Enphase Solar is smart enough to update itself automatically over the internet to deliver the latest software, performance and new features.
Enphase Solar is built on a distributed architecture platform. This modular microinverter design means you can quickly and easily expand your system as your needs grow and add battery storage.
SUPERIOR LOW-LIGHT PERFORMANCE
Enphase Solar uses their breakthrough Burst Mode technology to capture energy in low-light conditions, such as when there are shadows or clouds passing over the solar array.
Developed in the USA with first responders, Enphase Solar includes built-in Rapid Shutdown so that, in the event of an emergency, your solar power can be turned off instantly and easily, keeping utility workers and first responders safe.
BUILT TO LAST
Enphase micro inverters are rated for the most extreme weather conditions. From extreme heat conditions to wet and wild weather, the Enphase microinverters are specifically recommended solar power technology for it’s ability to perform beter in severe weather, such as cyclones.
Enphase Solar is a NEMA 6 rated, which is the highest water proof and dust seal rating meaning it can endure just about anything Mother Nature send it’s way.
Enphase micro inverters are designed to operate under extreme heat and provide superior energy yields with an ambient temperature rating up to 60 deg C.
POWER IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND
Enphase micro inverters provide the ability to monitor every solar panel independently to ensure each solar panel is working to it’s maximum potential. With the enlighten platform you can track your solar performance and home energy consumption to see how much solar energy you are producing and how much you are saving.
TECHNOLOGY COMING SOON
Enphase storage is a unique storage solution that is modular design, so you can start small and grow your storage requirements increase. With advanced storm and backup mode including Power Start technology the Enphase storage solution will be a great addition to any REA solar power system.
