Enphase announced its home energy systems will soon integrate with most leading models of home standby AC generators, providing enhanced performance and a glitch-free transition for homeowners during power outages.
Homeowners can also monitor real-time power flow, start and stop their generator remotely, set quiet hours to prevent their generator from operating until their batteries fall below a designated threshold, and control it all with the Enphase app. The new feature functions without a generator automatic transfer switch and eliminates the power glitches that reset home electronic appliances when switching to generator power.
“Many of our customers already own an AC home standby generator and want to integrate it into a solar and battery energy system,” said Mehran Sedigh, VP and general manager of the Enphase Energy storage business unit. “With this new feature slated for release in November, we’re making that possible for these customers. Pairing with an Enphase energy system results in running the generator only when needed to minimize noise, pollution and service issues.”
