PETALUMA, Calif. — Enphase Energy Inc., a provider of solar energy solutions, and Generac Power Systems Inc., a manufacturer of home backup generators, have joined forces to educate homeowners and distribution partners on the benefits of solar generation and outage protection. The companies are also working together to develop product integrations that deliver cost-effective and secure energy solutions to homeowners.
“Typical solar customers are seeking an environmentally-friendly way to reduce their energy bill. What many don’t realize is that solar doesn’t replace the grid during a power outage,” said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase. “This new relationship with Generac will enable us to educate solar consumers on the benefits of backup power and introduce solar to a new customer segment. At today’s prices, solar power can deliver immediate savings to consumers in many of the states where demand for backup power is strongest.”
