California — Enphase announced that the Enphase IQ™ 7A microinverter for high-power monofacial and bifacial solar modules will begin shipping to customers in North America in November 2019.

The IQ 7A microinverter augments the lineup of seventh-generation Enphase microinverters with support for modules up to 450 W, targeting high-power residential and commercial solar applications.

With a maximum output power of 366 VA (Volt-Amperes) and 97 percent CEC efficiency, Enphase IQ 7A microinverters can generate up to 14 percent more power than any previous generally available Enphase IQ microinverter. The IQ 7A microinverter maintains the compact form factor of the seventh-generation IQ family of microinverters and leverages the same groundbreaking semiconductor integration for high reliability and economies of scale.

Enphase customers will be able to pair the IQ 7A microinverter with monofacial or bifacial solar modules, up to 450 W, from solar module manufacturers who are expected to introduce high-power variants of their products in the next three years. IQ 7A microinverters paired with high-power modules allow solar installers to reduce the number of modules required for a given system output and provide installers the peace of mind of knowing that Enphase microinverters can support future high-power modules.

“With IQ 7A microinverters, we continue to deliver on our vision of innovation, high quality and reliability, and a reduction in the overall cost of delivered electricity by making installation easy,” said Badri Kothandaraman, President and CEO of Enphase Energy. “We are proud to offer our customers this industry-leading technology that makes clean energy more affordable and accessible to all, with features that both homeowners and many commercial solar customers want.”

Enphase IQ 7A microinverters are compatible with 60-, 66-, or 72-cell solar modules and are designed to support residential as well as commercial solar applications. As with all Enphase IQ microinverters, the IQ 7A microinverter is powered by Enphase’s unique software-defined architecture and includes built-in support for Rapid Shutdown and compliance with California Rule 21 requirements..
