Enphase Energy announced that Werner Electric has joined its solar distributor network. Werner Electric is a premier electrical products and services company serving Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota since 1948. Werner will carry the full suite of Enphase products, including seventh-generation microinverters.
“Werner has had the pleasure of working with the Enphase team to develop our growing partnership. They have been a breath of fresh air to the Werner solar team because they understand the business of value-added distribution partners. The team is extremely knowledgeable about their products as well as highly focused on serving Werner and our customers,” said Brian Bakalyar, solar energy supervisor at Werner Electric. “The current customer demand and ease of design and installation of the Enphase product line for electrical contractors who want to get into the solar business are what drew Werner to Enphase.”
The Enphase IQ Microinverter System dramatically simplifies solar installations and provides a complete AC solution that uses no high voltage DC, providing a safe solar solution for homeowners. IQ Microinverters meet or exceed regulatory requirements set by the National Electrical Code (NEC) and individual states. Unlike string inverters, rapid shutdown capability is built-in, with no additional equipment necessary.
The Enphase Home Energy Solution with IQ allows energy monitoring and insights from the Enphase Enlighten software platform’s easy-to-use interface. Wener Electric will also carry the existing suite of IQ products: the lighter two-wire Enphase Q Cable, and the Enphase IQ Combiner+ with pre-installed Enphase IQ Envoy, all of which help solar installers with fast and easy installation.
“Adding a tier-one regional solar supplier to our roster of distribution partners is a key element in Enphase’s evolution to becoming a more service-oriented supplier,” said David Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “The relationship we have developed with the Werner Energy Solutions team is collaborative and positive, and reflects the approach we take with all of our strategic distribution partners.”
