Enphase IQ8 Microinverter Wins Top Product from Solar Power World
SOLAR SOURCE is proud to work with companies that have the same high-quality standards that we do. One company that we have partnered with for many years is Enphase. We were glad to learn that Enphase recently received “Top Solar Product” from Solar Power World in 2021 for their IQ8 microinverter.
About the IQ8 Microinverter
The newest IQ8 Microinverters are the industry’s first grid-forming microinverters with split-phase power conversion capability to convert DC power to AC power efficiently.
The brain of the semiconductor-based microinverter is our proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) which enables the microinverter to operate in grid-tied or off-grid modes. This chip is built in advanced 55nm technology with high-speed digital logic and has super-fast response times to changing loads and grid events, alleviating constraints on battery sizing for home energy systems.
Part of the Enphase Energy System, IQ8 Microinverters integrate with the Enphase IQ Battery, Enphase IQ Gateway, and the Enphase App monitoring and analysis software.
IQ8 Microinverters redefine reliability standards with more than one million cumulative hours of power-on testing, enabling an industry-leading limited warranty of up to 25 years.

We chose Solar Source to install panels on our home and the process could not have been more easy.

The team is experienced, well organized and very professional with great communication throughout the process. Highly recommend Solar Source to anyone looking for residential or commercial solar!
I had a really wonderful experience with installing solar at my home. The Solar Source team was responsive and kept a me informed each step of the way. Permits were pulled without any effort on my part and the installation team was friendly and respectful. I am proud to share that my utility bill is at zero most months and I am saving money as a result of the installation. I highly recommend Solar Source!
Thanks Solar Source so very much for being helpful, cost conscious, working with the belligerent City of Long Beach and taking care of all the challenges to make my installation absolutely perfect.I’m now at $1.90/month just enough to keep me tied to the grid, and saving around $300/month since I have a swimming pool.Again, highest praise!
