Check your inverter’s indicator lights

You can locate the Envoy light strip (pictured) inside the combiner cabinet. The light strip is located in the top right-hand corner of the box (see illustration in step #2 for a full view of the inside of the combiner cabinet). Once located, make sure the following lights are on. These lights are listed as pictured, in order, from left to right.

  • Communication Indicator – solid green light
  • Access Point (AP) Mode Indicator – no light shown
  • Power Production Indicator – solid green light
  • Micro-inverters Communication – solid green light


Check that your main panel is on

Locate your solar breaker, indicated by a sticker or label. It should be located inside your combiner cabinet. If the solar breaker is off, flip to the ‘on’ position.


Check that your AC Disconnect is on

Locate your AC Disconnect unit, pictured on the left. Please check that the lever is up and in the ON position.


Turn on the breaker switches

Locate your envoy box, a big grey box with the Enphase logo. Please open the box and flip the white breaker switch so it is in the ON position. If there is more than one breaker switch, ensure all switches are in the ‘on’ position. There is one breaker per string.


Wait for the lights to reset

If you must move a position of any of the above, there is a waiting period of an hour for the lights to be solid green and solid blue. Same as in step 1, ensure the pictured lights are on.


Your system is ready to start producing

Once all the steps are completed your system will be ready to start producing solar power! Important: You may not see your system producing right away. Our system monitoring team will check back within 5 business days and reach out if your system requires extra support.
