What’s Favoring Enphase Energy’s Growth?

The increased adoption of Enphase Energy’s product offerings worldwide reflects its capabilities in offering the best standard and technologically advanced products to its customers. Also, Enphase Energy’s continuous efforts to improvise on its product offerings to provide homeowners with an excellent experience and improve customer reliability have resulted in huge demand for its products.

Additionally, extreme weather conditions resulting in prolonged power outages in some regions have propelled demand for an efficient battery storage system. In this context, it is imperative to mention that the recent surge in the deployment of its products in Colorado is supported by homeowners’ hunt for a reliable and durable alternative, which will lower dependence on the power grid. Battery storage and microinverters of ENPH will support customers’ electricity needs during the extreme winter days that bring extended power outages.

Colorado exemplifies massive growth potential for renewable sources of energy as the region enjoys sunny skies almost throughout the year, exhibiting immense opportunities for solar companies to develop solar projects and shine on the same.

This also adds impetus to the growth of the battery storage market in the region as it enables homeowners to store the energy when not in use. This, in turn, provides a huge growth platform for companies like Enphase Energy to prosper through its innovative products.

Moreover, per the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor report from the Energy Storage Association and Wood Mackenzie, Colorado may witness two times more deployments in 2022 in residential battery storage while boasting 12-fold growth rate momentum in deployments over the next six years.

Considering the solid growth prospects in the battery storage market in Colorado going forward, Enphase Energy may further witness the increased adoption of its products, which may boost its revenues from the Enphase Energy System line of business in the long haul.

U.S. Battery Storage Boom

The United States zero-emission target is impelling the adoption of various renewable sources of energy. Underpinned by growth in renewable sources of energy, the battery storage system is also gaining momentum as it reduces dependence on the grid and supports its proper functioning.

Per the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the United States is likely to witness an addition of 10,000 megawatts of large-scale battery storage projects to be installed between 2021 and 2023.

Such compelling growth projections of the U.S. battery storage market embody ample opportunities for companies like Enphase Energy to flourish on the growing trend. Prominent solar players like SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG - Free Report) , SunRun (RUN - Free Report) and SunPower (SPWR - Free Report) have also capitalized on the bright prospects of the U.S. battery storage market with their product range.
