The past couple of years have taught us many lessons but one that seems to be head and shoulders above the rest is that we all need to be better about preparing for the worst.
One terrific way to better prepare yourself for emergencies is to take measures to achieve some level of energy independence. One way to do this is to invest in a reliable and renewable energy source. In many cases, individuals looking to achieve energy independence will start looking at solar generators.
Once you start researching generators you will see that there are many options, and not all generators are created equal. For instance, there are home solar power systems that can end up being a costly endeavor, which includes Tesla as well as Enphase.
At Generark, we like to see how our energy solutions stack up against our competition. Sure, Enphase and Generark offer different products, but there are still many similarities. Each brand operates in the same arena with the same goal: to provide customers with products that get them closer to energy independence. Below, we compare and contrast our products with Enphase energy solutions.
More on Enphase
Enphase Energy Systems can seamlessly integrate an AC home standby generator into a solar and battery solution for extra power during an extended grid outage. No glitches. No resetting clocks. Take the generator integration certification training course to unlock this feature in the Enphase Installer App.
The package includes Enphase IQ microinverters, IQ battery, as well an app so users can control the system virtually as well as receive notifications and updates.
Like Tesla’s Powerwall, Enphase has developed a system for emergency power that represents no small commitment.
Enphase Pricing and Reviews
Pricing is also less than transparent. After visiting a fewconsumer review sites, those interested will find that prices will vary. For instance, the Enphase IQ Battery 3 costs around $3,000 while the Enphase IQ Battery 10 seems to cost anywhere between $7,000-$9,000.
These same consumer review sources list battery size as one of the cons in addition to the high price tag. Enphase seems to offer two differently sized solar batteries. Unfortunately, both batteries are on the smaller side when compared to similar products. This ends up leaving customers needing to spring for more than one battery for medium to large households as well those with intentions of achieving energy independence and off-the-grid living.
As far as the high price is concerned, this is likely due to the fact that multiple microinverters must be installed to power a successful system. Microinverters are pricey and also come with additional labor costs.
Can Enphase Help Your Reach Energy Independence?
Additionally, for those who wish to use Enphase for living in an off-grid home, this end goal is certainly possible, but customers will have to purchase additional technology to make energy independence a reality.
Just when you thought you broke the bank purchasing the Enphase Energy System, you will then have to buy an IQ Combiner 4/4C and an IQ System Controller 2 to sufficiently power your home.
Lastly, if you’re wondering about warranties, this is also less than transparent when it comes to Enphase. Each component (microinverter, battery, etc.) has its own warranty period. Enphase also seems to provide different warranty terms for different countries, so you have to do quite a bit of research to figure out exactly how much coverage you have after purchase. Components like envoys, combiners, and aggregators are covered with a 5-year limited warranty.
