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
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
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. For more

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result".
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
