IQ. Introducing the new Enphase IQ Envoy! This is the communications gateway designed specifically to work with the new Enphase IQ6 and IQ6Plus microinverters. Like the past generations, this new IQ Envoy delivers solar production and energy consumption data to the Enphase Enlighten monitoring system. This allows the user to monitor system performance via world wide web. This cool new Envoy also facilitates communication from Enphase to perform remote system upgrades.
Revenue Grade Metering Included. New for this Envoy is the integration of revenue grade production metering (and optional consumption measuring). In the past, if you wanted revenue grade production metering, you'd have to buy Enphase's special Envoy designated just for revenue grade metering. Now its built in!
Why? So why would you want revenue grade metering? You need it if your utility requires it (some do), or if you're financing the system and such a meter is required, or if you want to participate in performance-based incentives such as Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECS). Ok, but what is a "revenue grade meter"? A revenue grade meter is one that meets the requirements outlined in the ANSI standard C-12.1-2008. In this standard, the minimum accuracy of the meter is required to be +/- 2% (vs +/- 5% for non-revenue grade meters).
