Enphase Energy has agreed to acquire the Solar Design Services business of DIN Engineering Services LLP. Based in Noida, India, the business is a leading provider of outsourced proposal drawings and permit plan sets for residential solar installers in North America. DIN’s Solar Design Services business has more than a decade of experience working with local jurisdictions in the U.S. DIN leverages this knowledge to streamline the proposal and permitting process for installers.
The acquisition is expected to provide the following benefits:
- Offers Enphase’s installers new services by providing proposal drawings and permit plan sets
- Adds significant resources to accelerate automation and provide best-in-class customer service
- Integrates into the Enphase’s Enlighten digital platform, advancing Enphase’s goal to simplify and accelerate the end-to-end sales process across the residential solar industry
“This acquisition provides installers a clear opportunity to simplify their sales and installation process,” said Badri Kothandaraman, president and CEO of Enphase Energy. “We look forward to working with the talented team at DIN, leveraging their 10+ years of experience working with U.S. jurisdictions to help reduce solar soft costs and improve the overall installer experience.”
The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close by March 31, 2021.
