The company shipped approximately 2,599,575 microinverters, or 913 megawatts DC, and 65 megawatt hours of Enphase Storage systems during this period. Strong demand for our microinverter systems continued in the third quarter of 2021, while shipments of our Enphase Storage systems increased approximately 51%, compared to the second quarter of 2021, said the firm.

In a conference call with investors and analysts, Enphase Chief Executive Officer, Badri Kothandaraman said, “Since the company’s inception, we have invested in custom application specific integrated chips for our micro inverters and today we see a big pay off with the software defined micro-inverts smart enough to form a microgrid. Many home owners often assume that solar systems will function if the sun is shining, even during a power outage. This has unfortunately been true, until today.”

“Now with IQ8, homeowners can realise the true promise of solar to make and use their own power,” he said. Four days ago Enphase launched IQ8— “the industry’s first microgrid-forming microinverter.” “Unlike competing devices, IQ8 can form a microgrid during power outages using sunlight, providing back up power even without a battery,” stated Kothandaraman.
