California — Enphase Energy has unveiled a comprehensive portfolio of training options to ensure that installers are trained and ready for Enphase Ensemble™ technology.
To ultimately serve installers with hands-on training when COVID-19 social distancing measures subside, Enphase is preparing turn-key training centers around the U.S. Enphase is also introducing a full suite of online training resources to ensure installer training continues while social distancing measures are in place. Finally, Enphase has expanded its partnership with ImagineSolar LLC, a solar and smart-grid education and advisory services company, to quickly ramp up additional hands-on training capacity when appropriate.
The planned Enphase Ensemble technology training portfolio includes online training and 11 regional training centers and two truck-based mobile training units with rigorous testing to ensure high-quality installations and homeowner experiences.
In addition to a web-based video curriculum available today, on April 30, Enphase will introduce Enphase University, a training and remote skill verification experience delivered through an integrated Learning Management System (LMS). The partnership with ImagineSolar includes education for both Enphase Ensemble technology and the Enphase Encharge™ storage system.
As social distancing measures related to COVID-19 subside, ImagineSolar will be ready with turn-key installer training at its facility in Austin, Texas. ImagineSolar and Enphase will build on the comprehensive training on the entire suite of Enphase IQ™ products, including cloud-based fleet management and monitoring solutions from Enphase, already in place.
“It has been our mission to ensure that installers are ready for the convergence of solar, smart-grid, and storage technologies, and this enhanced partnership with Enphase will allow us to commence in-person training quickly,” said Michael Kuhn, founder, and CEO of ImagineSolar LLC. “With Enphase Ensemble technology, we now have a suite of products that allows us to train installers on how to bring a smart and fully integrated solar-plus-storage solution to homeowners. Our customers also appreciate that our training leverages a solution that is manufactured and supported by a single company and does not require a collection of parts and components from a variety of manufacturers.”
“Enphase Ensemble technology takes the complexity out of always-on solar-plus-storage systems, and we have built a portfolio of training options to ensure that, on day one, our installers have the knowledge and confidence to deploy Ensemble technology,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “In addition to training collaborations with solar distribution companies around the nation, the partnership with ImagineSolar serves to increase the number of Enphase-trained designers and installers who can approach both existing customers and prospects about energy resilience using Ensemble technology.”
