Enphase Energy Envoy
The Enphase Envoy is a communications gateway that collects performance information for each solar module in a user's system and transmits this data to the Enlighten™ website, where users can view and manage the performance of their solar power system.
Solar Energy Rebates
Many utilities require an approved monitor to qualify for financial rebates. The Enphase Envoy is a widely approved energy monitor in the United States.
Plug and Play
The Envoy can be plugged into any standard AC outlet. Enphase Micro-inverters transmit data over the existing power line. No additional wiring is required. Once the unit is plugged into an AC outlet, simply connect an Ethernet cable from the Envoy into a broadband router. Performance data is transmitted using broadband Ethernet protocols for immediate access to performance information.
The Enphase Envoy works in conjunction with the Enphase Microinverter and the Enlighten website.
The Enlighten website provides a wide range of information on the performance of the solar power system and individual modules. A graphical representation of the solar array provides "at a glance" information on the status of each module. More detailed information, including current and lifetime performance metrics, give users a true view of the benefits of the solar energy installation.
Integrated Per-module Monitoring
Enlighten automatically monitors the performance of every module in the system. No additional monitoring hardware or software is needed. Unlike third party monitoring systems, which only monitor the inverter, Enlighten provides unprecedented visibility into the performance of every individual module.
The Enlighten website provides harvest information in various forms – including summary views, totals by day/week/month/life-time, and time-lapse motion summary – for the entire array and individual modules. This richness of data collected from each module helps the owner troubleshoot and verify the solar system performance.
Enlighten is continuously monitoring the performance of the solar power system and will highlight any deviation in performance by comparing the harvest of individual modules to the harvest of surrounding modules. Customers can choose to be sent an alert upon certain conditions, and problems can be addressed either during routine maintenance or at the installer's convenience.
