Enphase Energy, a U.S.-based energy technology company, has said it is acquiring DIN Engineering Services’ Solar Design Services business.
The acquisition will be closed by March 31, 2021.
DIN Engineering Services is based in Noida, Uttar Pradesh and provides multi-platform engineering design and services. Its Solar Design Services business provides outsourced proposal drawings and permit packages for residential solar systems.
Through this acquisition, Enphase will be able to provide proposal drawings and permit plan sets for residential solar installers, enhance automation and consumer services, and facilitate and enhance the end-to-end sales process for its consumers.
Jeff McNeil, Chief Operating Officer of Enphase Energy, said, “We are pleased to join forces with the solar design services business to be acquired from DIN Engineering Services. We look forward to welcoming DIN’s current installers to Enphase upon close. We believe DIN’s proposal and permit plan services will benefit Enphase’s installers by enabling them to better utilize their limited resources to focus on other key areas of their business.”
Anuj Gupta, Chief Executive Officer of DIN Engineering Services, said, “We expect to bring our expertise to Enphase’s installers by providing quick, accurate, and cost-effective services, enabling them to focus on their core advantage of selling and installing solar and storage systems.”
Enphase Energy said it provides easy-to-use solutions that manage solar generation, storage, and communication on one platform. It has deployed around 1.3 million Enphase-based systems and shipped 30 million microinverters in over 130 countries worldwide.
Recently, Enphase Energy announced the closing of its acquisition of Sofdesk. Sofdesk provides an integrated software platform that helps simplify and enhance the end-to-end sales process across the residential solar industry.
