Enphase Ensemble Defined
There are a number of different ways that solar can be added to your home and Enphase Ensemble is able to suit whichever way you choose. Enphase Ensemble has the capability to be several types of energy systems. These Ensemble systems can be defined as Traditional Solar, Ensemble Solar, Ensemble Energy, Ensemble Self-Reliance and Ensemble Off-Grid. One system, different possibilities.
Solar energy for home use has given many millions of people around the world a way to start taking control of their home energy. 'Going solar' has also given many homeowners a respite from high utility bills. A vast majority of solar homeowners, however, believe that freedom from utility bills also means energy independence. But 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 provides lower electricity bills and clean energy to households and businesses everywhere. With the eighth-generation Enphase Home Energy System with IQ™, prospective solar homeowners have the option to join the solar movement in the traditional fashion.
Ensemble Solar gives you the power of a connection to electric utility lines, while Enphase Ensemble works with the Enpower Switch and the Enphase Microinverter System with IQ to provide the power while the sun shines. This keeps the home microgrid amped up if a storm or some other issue interrupts the public power grid.
Ensemble Solar is grid agnostic. Ensemble Solar keeps 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 fundamentally enables every single person on earth to experience electricity without a power grid. The many hundreds of millions of people who live in underserved regions, without access to the grid, can use Ensemble Off-Grid to harness the power of the sun. The lack of access to electricity now no longer has to stifle 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. This keeps the home microgrid amped up 24x7. With Ensemble Energy the stage lights are always on.
Ensemble Energy Adding Encharge Batteries to an Enphase Solar system allows homeowners to power their houses at night during a power outage. Ensemble Energy means enjoying the assurance of a connection to the existing grid infrastructure, while also protecting the power in the home with its own microgrid if a storm or some other issue interrupts the public power grid. Ensemble Energy: Assurance of the public grid with the confidence of a personal microgrid that keeps the power on when the sun is not shining.
Ensemble Self-Reliance is power for life lived far beyond the reach of power lines and cell towers. Ensemble Self-Reliance is the easiest way to go truly off-grid with solar and storage, without expensive converters, complicated wiring, or specialty appliances.
Ensemble Self-Reliance. The dream homestead far beyond the reach of power lines and cell towers requires true off-grid energy with Enphase Ensemble; clean, reliable solar power provides the energy during daylight hours, and Encharge Batteries will keep the lights on at night too. 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. Off-grid energy with Ensemble is like the acoustic jam session that keeps going after the sun goes down.
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.
