Enphase Energy and Vivint Solar Sign Three-Year Strategic Agreement

Enphase Energy (NASDAQ: ENPH) announced today the renewal of its strategic inverter agreement with an affiliate of Vivint Solar, Inc., a leading provider of residential solar energy systems in the United States. The new multi-year agreement expands on the existing relationship between the two companies.

“The renewal of Enphase’s inverter supply agreement with Vivint Solar strengthens our ongoing strategic relationship,” said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of worldwide sales and field operations at Enphase. “We believe the winning combination of the Enphase microinverter-based solar energy management system and Vivint Solar’s innovative consumer-friendly business approach provides a compelling offering for the U.S. residential rooftop solar sector.”

“Enphase Energy is a valued technology partner to Vivint Solar and we are proud to continue installing its microinverters on residential solar rooftops,” said Jan Newman, vice president of business development at Vivint Solar.

Vivint Solar designs, installs, monitors and services the system with no upfront costs to the homeowner. Through a power purchase agreement (PPA) or solar energy system lease, a homeowner can use the power generated by a solar photovoltaic system and generally realize savings relative to the prevailing electric utility provider rates. Vivint Solar currently operates in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

Enphase continues to see robust demand for its market-leading microinverter technology with current and new customers from larger companies like Vivint Solar to small professional solar installers. The company has shipped more than 5.7 million microinverters worldwide, which are installed in 160,000-plus systems, accounting for over 1.2GW of installed solar generating capacity.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...
This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business. Another word that is used in every context in our industry is “hybrid.” In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Alvaro Gonzalez, Director of Technical, Partner and Field Marketing at Peak 10, will use a combination of a few conceptual props and some research recently commissioned by Peak 10 to offer a real-world consideration of how the various categories of...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
