Enphase Ensemble Defined
Solar energy given millions of homeowners the ability to take control of their home energy while giving many people a respite from high utility bills. A vast majority of solar homeowners, however, believe that freedom from utility bills also means energy independence. But it's important to note traditional home solar systems stop producing energy when the utility grid suffers an outage; even if the system has batteries.
This 'grid-tied' solar model will provide lower electricity bills and clean energy to its users. With the eighth-generation Enphase Home Energy System with IQ™, prospective solar users have the option to join the solar movement in the traditional fashion.
Ensemble Solar gives users a connection to electric utility lines, while Enphase Ensemble works with the Enpower Switch and the Enphase Microinverter System to provide power as the sun shines. This keeps the home microgrid topped up if a storm or any other issue interrupts the public power grid.
Ensemble Solar is grid agnostic meaning it continues working when the sun is shining, even if the utility power goes out.
Ensemble Solar: Assurance of the public grid with the confidence of a personal microgrid.
Ensemble Off-Grid enables its users to experience electricity without reliance on a power grid.
The many hundreds of millions of people who live in underserved regions, without access to the grid, can maximise Ensemble's Off-Grid option to harness the energy produced by the sun. Lack of access to electricity no longer stifles economic and social development, since people can now capitalise on the power of solar with Ensemble Off-Grid.
Ensemble Energy takes Ensemble Solar a step further, adding batteries to keep the power on during an outage, even when the sun isn't shining.
With Ensemble Energy the stage lights are always on.
Ensemble Energy means enjoying the assurance of a connection to the existing grid infrastructure, while also protecting power in the home with its own microgrid if a storm or some other issue interrupts the public power grid.
Ensemble Self-Reliance is power for life lived far beyond the reach of power lines and cell towers. This is the easiest way to go truly off-grid with solar and storage, without expensive converters or additional appliances.
With the Enphase Home Energy System with IQ™, there is no need to spend extra money on speciality electronics or expensive custom wiring schemes. Specialty DC-power home appliances are also a thing of the past since off-grid energy with Ensemble Self-Reliance produces the same AC-power used in traditional grid-connected homes.
Enjoy clean, reliable solar power to provide the energy during daylight hours while Encharge Batteries keep the lights on at night.
Below are the Enphase products that combine in harmony to create Enphase Ensemble.
The Enpower Switch is the Energy Management system and it allows you to switch seamlessly from a mains power connection to a microgrid environment if the power goes out. This system keeps the power on when the grid goes out but the sun is shining. With the Enpower Switch, you have the ability to assign priority to different circuits so you can manage what to keep on when the grid is down. As long as you’re harvesting the sun’s rays, your system will allocate energy to match your priorities, even when the grid can’t. The sun is shining, and you stay in tune.
You can easily keep track of your energy system's performance using the cloud-based monitoring platform, Enlighten. Using Enlighten you can easily configure your system and change priorities, whenever you need. There are information display options to suit everyone, ranging from basic whole system facts to detailed per panel monitoring data. You can keep an eye on your energy system, any time, anywhere.
The Encharge Battery is the future of energy storage. This energy storage solution provides backup power for after the sun sets and the grid is still down. Paired with the Enpower Switch, this gives you the full off-grid experience. If the power grid goes down, your home keeps running through the blackout.
IQ 8 Microinverter™
IQ 8 Microinverter™
The IQ 8 microinverter is the latest in microinverter technology - it is smaller, lighter and can process more power than ever before, and can get you started on your path to energy independence. You can start by installing the IQ 8 microinverter for your traditional solar, but with Enphase, you have the option to go off-grid with the same IQ 8 microinverter when you are ready.
