SunEdison has completed the installation and commissioning of a solar energy system using the Enphase Microinverter System at one of its New Jersey power plants. This site represents the first Enphase installation with SunEdison, Enphase says.

Enphase Microinverter Systems convert the DC output of a single solar module into grid-compliant AC power. According to the company, these systems offer a substantial increase in energy harvest, increased system reliability, and a simpler and safer installation. Additionally, the balance-of-system (BOS) and labor costs can be reduced by up to 15% compared with systems installed with traditional inverters, Enphase says.

"SunEdison chose the Enphase Microinverter System for its reliability, system availability and easy integration with our SEEDS monitoring and controls platform," says Mark Culpepper, chief technology officer at SunEdison. "The site has been running for three months and has been running at an operating performance ratio of close to 120 percent. It's one of the best-performing sites in our fleet."
