SunSystem Technology, LLC (SST) and Enphase Energy, Inc. announced today that SST has acquired the Residential Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Field Services Division of Next Phase Solar from Enphase and the two companies have entered into a strategic partnership in which SST will serve as Enphase's primary residential O&M service provider.
"We are very excited about this transaction with Enphase," said Derek Chase, SST CEO. "Our companies share a common culture of quality that includes maintaining leading-edge knowledge through ongoing training for the technology driving today's residential systems.
