US microinverter maker Enphase Energy has expanded its footprint in Australia on the back of a new partnership with one of the leading retailers, Solargain. The company’s premium inverter solution has been selected for Solargain’s turnkey retail solar offerings in Australia.

The Perth-based retailer with more than 70,000 solar installations across the country under its belt is focused on innovating the residential solar experience. For example, the company was selected by Ikea as its Australian partner to support its in-store and online solar offering.

For both solar packages available in Australia, Ikea has selected Growatt products, including its X generation inverters and residential lithium-ion battery storage systems, as well as Trina Solar’s 370W modules. By virtue of the new partnership, Australian customers purchasing a Solargain-IKEA solar system will have a choice to opt for a package with Enphase IQ 7+™ microinverters.
