New features for homeowners

Four new features that make Enphase Storage simple and easy to use for homeowners.

  1. Text message notifications

    Homeowners will receive alerts via text message when the grid goes down or comes back up. That means that they can swing into action just in time to ensure Enphase Storage does not run out on them.

  2. Enhanced app menu

    The Enlighten Menu has a new tile layout that helps homeowners find what they need quickly. We've also simplified the navigation by reducing the options under each menu item.

  3. Battery prioritization  

    During peak hours, homeowners can now prioritize the battery as a first choice, solar as the second choice, and the grid as the third choice. Any excess solar not used by the home gets exported to the grid.

  4. Redesigned email notifications   

    New emails notify homeowners of a system error or alert and a lot more. They get recommendations, updates on exciting discussions in the Enphase Community, metrics such as site ID, and links to support, all in one email.
