Enphase Energy has announced that Enphase AC Battery is now available from authorized distributors and accepting orders from installers in Australia and New Zealand.

The first global shipment is expected to arrive in Australia in August this year. Company’s partner network of over 1,000 installers located in the region will be the first in the world to have access to the scalable, modular energy storage system Enphase AC Battery said the company.

 Launched in February 2016 the Enphase AC Battery features an updated visual design, itis suitable for any home regardless of the brand of inverters or solar panels used. Unlike most other home batteries, a costly upgrade of the existing solar system’s inverter is not required said the company.

The Enphase AC Battery integrates seamlessly with the Enphase Home Energy Solution, which delivers one of the lowest up-front costs and highest lifetime values in the market.

Nathan Dunn, managing director of Enphase Asia-Pacific said, “Enphase received strong interest from homeowners in Australia and New Zealand when we announced the Enphase AC Battery in October 2015. The feedback we’ve received to date from our partners has been extremely encouraging and I am delighted that Australia and New Zealand will be the first region in the world where we will be selling the Enphase Home Energy Solution.” He further added “We believe the Enphase Home Energy Solution represents the most compelling and technologically advanced residential energy solution in the world today. In fact, it is the only complete energy system that we’ve seen to date and we expect the initial demand to be driven by installers looking to retrofit existing residential solar PV systems. Enphase expects the next wave of demand to be driven by new solar PV system owners enticed by the elegance and simplicity of our solution.”

Working with the AC Battery is Enphase Enlighten, a cloud-based energy management platform that can integrate the Enphase Home Energy Solution with smart devices for an intelligent home. System owners can use Enphase Enlighten to monitor their home’s solar generation, energy storage and consumption from any web-enabled device.
