Enphase Energy has called on Australia’s new Government to convene a renewable energy summit that can align national resources for a more coordinated drive to achieve carbon net-zero.
After Saturday’s Federal election elected a new parliament overwhelmingly committed to more aggressive action on climate change, Australia needs to harness all its resources to focus on accelerating the nation’s transition to a low-cost renewable energy economy.
Enphase Energy General Manager ANZ & Pacific Wilf Johnston said Australia could reap enormous economic benefits from getting all parties involved in the renewable energy sector into one room. “Bob Hawke did this successfully with the National Economic Summit in 1983,” he said.
Sydney-based Solaray Energy believes its Australian record of installing more than 75,000 Enphase microinverters on solar panels provides a path for solar-enabling Australia’s “stressed” electricity grid.
In a global announcement, Enphase Energy reports that Solaray is its only Australian partner to have installed more than 75,000 Enphase microinverters since 2014 - most of them in the past three years. Three other Enphase partners were recognised for having installed more than 25,000 microinverters.
Solaray estimates that with each microinverter installed on an average 300-watt panel, they have a collective energy generation capacity of 22.5 megawatts (MW) – capable of producing 32.8 gigawatt-hours (GW-h) of energy annually - enough to power more than 5200 average Australian homes *.
Solaray Energy director Jonathan Fisk said the big problem with rooftop-generated solar energy was that the electricity grid was not designed for it. “The grid was designed to distribute electricity generated by large, centralised power stations,” he said.
Founded six months before the COVID-19 pandemic slammed into the Australian economy, Enphase partner Jet Solar has seen sales of solar PV systems soar in the three years since it was set up.
Melbourne-based Jet Solar, which recently became an Enphase Gold Partner, was founded by electrician Jason Dickinson with just one other employee. Now he heads a team of nine, which includes a Qantas pilot who left the cockpit for the rooftop due to the collapse of international travel.
“We have a great little team,” explains Jason. “We have a couple of apprentices, ranging from a teenager to a 46-year-old ‘mature age’ apprentice and a couple of school-based apprentices.
