How does the Enphase Home Energy System work?

Get the basics about Enphase microinverters

The Enphase Home Solar Energy System is a complete solution that produces, stores, monitors, controls, and analyzes the energy in your home.

There are four main components of an Enphase Microinverter System:

  1. Enphase Microinverters are installed beneath each solar module and convert DC power to AC power. Each microinverter sends AC power to your home’s electrical panel (site load center) and transmits performance data over your home’s electrical wiring to the Envoy.

  2. Enphase AC Batteries work with the Envoy-S Metered, allowing you to store excess energy that your solar panels produce during midday and save it to use later in the afternoon and evening when you need it. Learn more about Solar AC Batteries.

  3. The Enphase Envoy® Communications Gateway™ transmits performance information to Enlighten over the Internet. Learn more about the Envoy.

  4. Enphase Enlighten® software lets you monitor your system’s performance online and provides diagnostic tools for your solar professional.
