Enphase, Waaree Announce 4.5 MW Solar Installation in India

California-headquartered Enphase Energy and India-based solar panel maker Waaree Energies has announced 4.5 MW PV project installation using Waaree Enphase AC modules in Hosapet, India.

This PV project will be the largest Enphase microinverter-based solar installation globally.

Further, the system’s owner, an independent power producer (IPP) chose the Waaree Enphase AC module (ACM) due to its ability to generate solar power in low-light, diffused light or shaded conditions, maximizing its energy harvest in India’s harsh, dusty environment.

Occupying 18 acres and powered by 13,235 Enphase Energy microinverters, the system is expected to provide more than 7,500 MWh of clean power annually to businesses in Bangalore and Karnataka state through a mix of short and long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).

Commenting on the development, Enphase Energy, Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, David Ranhoff said, “This 4.5MW power plant installation represents Enphase’s entry into India’s utility scale photovoltaic (PV) segment, and proves that Enphase’s value proposition of outstanding reliability, safety and performance translates to large scale systems.”

“The Waaree Enphase AC module is a high-quality product that provides an efficient and cost effective installation process,” said Hitesh Doshi, Chairman and Managing Director, Waaree Energies Ltd.

Speaking about Waaree Enphase AC modules, Diwakar Soltec Pvt Ltd, Founder and Director, K. Shreedhar said, “We are delighted to install Waaree’s mono-crystalline ACMs with Enphase Energy’s microinverters.”

Meanwhile, Diwakar Soltec, a leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm based in Hosapet, India is due to commission the system in July 2018.
