Enphase Micro inverters are installed at each solar panel, maximizing energy production and converting the DC power from the panel into standard AC electricity. This offers greater design flexibility and simplified installation, accommodating different roof planes, pitches, or rooftop obstacles. The first to introduce module-level micro inverters, Enphase technology maximizes safety and design flexibility. The M215 Micro inverters are covered by a 25-year limited warranty. Each Enphase Micro inverter is individually connected to one solar panel in your array. This unique configuration means that an individual Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) controls each solar panel. This ensures that the maximum power available from each solar panel is exported to the utility grid regardless of the performance of the other solar panels in the array.
The M215 Micro inverter is connected to the AC branch circuit using the Engage cable system. The Engage Cable is a continuous length of 12AWG cable with per-installed connectors for the Enphase Micro inverters to plug into. The cable is handled like standard outdoor-rated electrical wire, allowing it to be cut, spliced and extended as needed. The Engage system is comprised of ruggedized cabling and accessories that enable fast, easy installations of the Enphase system. Snap-together connectors and waterproof enclosures deliver a streamlined, secure, and standardized approach to array wiring unique to the Enphase System.
Each of the micro inverters that makes up the Enphase 13260W solar kit integrates with Enphase network technology allowing you to monitor each panel performance throughout the day. (Monitor is Optional) Enphase system monitoring capability be accomplished using the optional Envoy monitor by simply plugging into a 120 volt wall outlet. You can also track your solar production by using other different types of monitors, but most customers would opt for the Envoy monitor because you can read individual panel performance rather that the whole systems performance.
These Enphase 13260W solar kits ship with the new Enphase Integrated Ground (IG) technology. Integrated Ground (IG) technology is a fully-compliant system and equipment grounding incorporated into the microinverter cabling and the microinverter itself, making safety and code compliance easier than ever.

Kit Ships in 3 to 5 Business Days After Funds Clear. Canadian Solar packages stocked in California, Hawaii & New Jersey. Custom Line Drawing is sent via email in 5 - 7 business days (Line Drawing Lead Time is Subject to Seasonal Increases).
Best Practice: Center-feed the branch circuit to minimize voltage rise in a fully-populated branch. This practice greatly reduces the voltage rise as compared with an end-fed branch.
|3.0kW AC Coupled Backup This home battery backup kit allows you to use your Enphase solar system to charge 10,752 watts of battery off-grid backup to home solar system with an option for 21,500 watts. If your system is 3600 watts or less, or has a string we can isolate for this application, you can add this cost effective backup and leave the lights on during utility power outages.||BP9344487|
|Arrh! Even More Power? Upgrade to the New Enphase M250 Microinverter. The Enphase® M250 Micro inverter delivers increased energy harvest over the traditional Enphase M215. (1 Set Per Panel. Example: 10 Panel Kit Upgrade = Add 10 Sets to Upgrade to M250 Each. 20 Panel Kit, Add 20 Sets)||EEM250-UG|
Additional Hardware That May Be Required
Blue Pacific Solar has provided all of the main parts you will need for your kit. (See "What's On The Truck") Roof racks and roof rack attachment options or a ground rack system are site specific options that are not included with the base package. The Enphase Envoy monitor is not needed to make your system operate, but is a good idea since it allows you to see the panel level performance. Additionally some additional items sourced from your local hardware store that your may need to purchase are: Conduit, appropriately sized electrical wire from the array, some fasteners, sealant, grounding rod, junction box at the edge of the array where you will make the transition to conduit, an AC combiner box if you have more than one string and a AC disconnect within 10' of the main panel which may be required in some local jurisdictions.

NOTE IMPORTANT INSTALLATION Enphase Energy M215-60-2LL-S22-IG : It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. These codes may vary from city to city and county to county. All Grid-tied solar installations should be permitted and inspected, where required, by the local inspection authority in the same manner as other equivalent electrical systems. It is always a good idea to contract with a local licensed electrician to at least do the final electrical connection of your Enphase Energy M215-60-2LL-S22-IG system from the AC disconnect to your home utility breaker box. Some local permitting authorities require that a licensed electrician do all the wiring from the rack to the utility interconnect.
Additional Safety Instructions; Perform all electrical installations in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70. Be aware that only qualified personnel should install or replace Enphase MicroInverter. Do not attempt to repair the Enphase MicroInverter as it contains no user-serviceable parts. If it fails, please contact Enphase customer service to obtain an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number and start the replacement process. Tampering with or opening the Enphase MicroInverter will void the warranty. Before installing or using the Enphase Energy M215-60-2LL-S22-IG, please read all instructions and cautionary markings in the technical description. Connect the Microinverter to the utility grid only after receiving prior approval from the electrical utility company. Be aware that the body of the microinverter is the heat sink. Under normal operating conditions, the temperature is 15°C above ambient, but under extreme conditions the microinverter can reach a temperature of 80°C. To reduce risk of burns, use caution when working with microinverter. Do NOT disconnect the solar panel from the Enphase Energy M215-60-2LL-S22-IG without first removing AC power.
This Enphase 13260W Solar Kit is an affordable expandable do-it-yourself (DIY) high quality solution for your home or businesses energy independence.
