California-based Leonard Roofing has installed Enphase System micro-inverters and supporting monitoring software for single-family homes at California Home Builders’ newest residential community in San Fernando Valley, Calif.

California Home Builders’ development in the San Fernando Valley will see a total of 64.8 kW of solar installations distributed across 18 rooftops, with individual 3.6 kW arrays all featuring the Enphase System.

“This project counters solar’s reputation as a luxury amenity and instead incorporates PV as a standard home feature alongside LED lighting fixtures and energy-efficient appliances,” says Kathryn Rudnick, chief operating officer of California Home Builders. “We believe people buy homes for a combination of reasons, and intelligent solar power from Enphase gives us a competitive edge in our market that adds more value to our customers’ homes.”
