Enphase Energy Partners With Excel to Deliver Solar Projects in Australia

Enphase Energy Inc, a global energy technology company and a leading supplier of solar microinverters, has announced that Excel Power, a leading commercial and residential solar company with headquarters in Toowoomba, Australia, is leveraging the safety, reliability, and versatility of Enphase microinverters to build a growing base of commercial solar customers.

Excel Power deployed a 50 kW Enphase microinverter-based system for Wippells Autos, a Jaguar and Land Rover dealership in Toowoomba City, Queensland. The project brief required a system designed to match the dealership’s energy consumption, minimise the visibility of the solar panels, and shield the commercial building from fire risk. To meet the project brief requirements, Excel Power employed Enphase IQ 7+ microinverters, which dramatically simplify the design and installation process, and offer a complete AC system that produces no high-voltage DC, providing a safe solar solution.

In addition, Wippells Autos’ solar system is outfitted with the Enphase Envoy communications gateway, which connects the system to the Enphase Enlighten monitoring platform and makes per-panel energy monitoring and insights for operations and maintenance easy.

“Excel Power has provided commercial and residential solar solutions in the Darling Downs region of southern Queensland for more than 25 years,” said Michael Reiken, director at Excel Power. “We have exclusively utilised Enphase microinverters for all solar projects since we discovered the technology in 2016. Enphase offers smarter, better, and safer solar, which future-proofs not only our customers, but also our business, aligning with our mission to realize the long-term benefits of a renewable energy future.”

Another example where Excel Power leveraged the value of Enphase microinverters is an ongoing project to equip the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) with rugged, high-performance solar to assist with operational efficiency and enhance sustainability. To date, Excel Power has installed more than 50 Enphase micro inverter-based systems for QFES.

“Excel Power is a leading example of how a solar operation can distinguish itself in a competitive market by building a reputation for quality and safe AC solar using Enphase products,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “Both companies share a commitment to provide extremely safe and reliable solar energy outcomes combined with superior customer experience, and we look forward to our continued collaboration in the Australian solar market.”
