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.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
