Enphase Energy and Leonard Roofing Partner With California Home Builders to Power Sustainable-Living Neighborhood

Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) today announced that Leonard Roofing, a regional roofing, sheet metal and photovoltaic solar contractor, has installed the Enphase® System on 18 single-family homes at California Home Builders’ newest residential community in San Fernando Valley, Calif. California Home Builders is an industry leader in real estate development, specializing in building residential communities, multifamily projects and luxury custom homes. The company has constructed hundreds of projects in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties since its establishment in 1994.

In 2012, California Home Builders developed the first new home community in the city of Los Angeles to include a solar electric generating system as a standard feature on each home. Their latest development in the San Fernando Valley will see a total of 64.8kW of solar installations distributed across 18 rooftops, with individual 3.6kW arrays all featuring the Enphase System.

“This project counters solar’s reputation as a luxury amenity and instead incorporates PV as a standard home feature alongside LED lighting fixtures and energy-efficient appliances,” said Kathryn Rudnick, COO of California Home Builders. “We believe people buy homes for a combination of reasons, and intelligent solar power from Enphase gives us a competitive edge in our market that adds more value to our customers’ homes.”

By installing the Enphase System, each homeowner has access to their personal Enphase MyEnlighten account that displays system production and environmental impact information. California Home Builders can use Enlighten Manager to track and monitor all of their Enphase systems together – a valuable showcasing tool for potential buyers, according to Rudnick.

“We are proud to provide California Home Builders advanced solar technology that generates financial and environmental benefits for homeowners included with the purchase of their home,” said Jeff Loebbaka, SVP of global sales, marketing and support for Enphase Energy. “With the Enphase System, California Home Builders can track and showcase their solar homes online, and Leonard Roofing can confidently install a flexible and reliable solar array.”

“Enphase technology allowed us to design smart solar systems that California Home Builders can easily integrate into original home designs,” said Marshall Howen, major accounts manager for Leonard Roofing. “The simple plug-and-play design of Enphase microinverters made our job easier, safer and faster than ever before.”

Last Friday, May 9th, President Obama noted as part of his Commitments and Executive Actions to Advance Solar Deployment and Energy Efficiency that new homebuilders are critical for “tapping the full potential of solar” in the U.S. To this end, California Home Builders makes solar more accessible for new homebuyers by offering solar as a standard feature in many of their communities.
