PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - Enphase Energy, the leader in microinverter systems, today announced that it is CSA certified for the WEEB Grounding System ("Washer, Electrical Equipment Bonding"), a family of products used to bond solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to solar racking systems.
