Enphase Energy powers IndiQube workspace


Enphase Energy, Inc., a global energy management technology company and the world’s leading supplier of microinverter-based solar-plus-storage systems, today announced the commissioning of a solar rooftop installation at a building of flexible workspace provider IndiQube.

The 103 kWp solar rooftop plant at IndiQube Lakeside was installed by EPC service provider U-Solar. It comprises 228 Renewsys 450Wp panels and 228 Enphase IQ 7A microinverters. The generated solar power meets 25% of the total energy requirement of the property and will help offset 140 tons of CO2 emissions in a year. This carbon footprint reduction is equivalent to planting 900 trees every year. 

Enphase solar monitoring mobile app Enlighten allows IndiQube to track solar energy production and monitor the system’s health on a real-time basis.

Enphase has shipped more than 34 million microinverters globally, and approximately 1.5 million Enphase-based systems have been deployed in more than 130 countries. Its India manufacturing facility in Chennai has deployed ~400,000 units per quarter and can ramp up to 1 million units per quarter.

Enphase microinverters feature Burst mode technology that leads to more electricity production even at dawn, dusk, and in low-light conditions. These also have a built-in rapid shutdown feature, so solar power can be turned off instantly in the event of an emergency.

Sunil Thamaran, vice president and managing direcor at Enphase Energy India said, “As employees gradually start going back to offices, the energy consumption of office buildings is going to rise drastically. Shared workspaces will have to pre-empt energy requirements and explore ways to meet this rising demand. We are delighted to partner with IndiQube and convert their workspace into a green building. IndiQube has now moved on from just being an energy-efficient building to an energy-neutral building and we are proud to be a part of this green transition, along with our partner U-Solar who installed the system on their rooftop.”

IndiQube has a portfolio of 4 million square feet, spread across 60+ properties in six cities. It is on a mission to provide sustainable workspaces, aiming to take its overall rooftop solar power capacity to over 1 MW in 2022.

Rishi Das, Co-founder and CEO at IndiQube, said they plan to extend their collaboration with Enphase to more properties, thereby taking the overall rooftop solar power capacity to over 1 MW in 2022.

Commenting on the solar installation, Sanjeev Jha, Head of Operations at U-Solar, said, “Companies are increasingly implementing more sustainable and eco-friendly practices, and it is a trend that we expect will continue to grow. Organizations can install an affordable, efficient, and clean energy solution to power office requirements. The Enphase IQ microinverters ensure maximum solar power generation from solar panels, enabling us to provide a smart solar solution for properties like IndiQube.”
