Ready Solar Commits to Use Enphase Microinverters Exclusively for Pre-Assembled Solar in a Box™

Partnership Creates New Opportunities for Electrical Contractors to Enter Solar Industry

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - Ready Solar, the creator of the Solar in a Box™ AC solar energy business, today announced an expansion of its relationship with Enphase Energy, Inc., developer of the Enphase Microinverter. Under the arrangement, Ready Solar has entered into an arrangement to use Enphase Microinverters for all of its pre-assembled Solar in a Box™ systems in 2010.

"Ready Solar was one of the early adopters of the Enphase Microinverter technology. We are very excited to partner with them in their vision to create a solar appliance that will reduce installation costs while increasing safety, reliability and energy harvest," said Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy.

"Enphase's high quality product and exceptional customer support makes the decision to extend our relationship an easy one," says Ready Solar CEO Bob Giles. "Over the past 18 months, the feedback from our customers has been outstanding."

Ready Solar began shipping Solar in a Box™ systems with Enphase Microinverters in August of 2008. By creating a safer and easier approach to solar electric installation, Ready Solar has opened significant new opportunities for entry into the solar industry.

Contractors can now buy complete and easy to install solar electric systems from their trusted local electrical product distributors. Ready Solar services this market with over 120 manufacturers' sales representatives across 40 states and Canada. Homebuilders now also have an easier and less expensive option for including solar as a standard, modular feature in their projects.

"We have spent the past two years building out our sales channels and establishing our product as the easiest way for contractors to get into the solar business," adds Giles. "Our relationship with Enphase along with significant recent reductions in our manufacturing costs have set us up for a very successful 2010."
