    It's not so much specialized as done for you. Since the Envoy now needs to be on its own breaker, and in a 12x12x4 PVC box, you save the extra cost of supplying your own subpanel and box and you nearly come out even. Add the occasional instance where you have to make an extra trip to the job because you forgot to supply one of those items yourself, and you come out even more even. It also looks cleaner.

    Haha touche! Okay my latest quote is at $377.30 for the IQ Envoy alone, for this job. Maybe I was exaggerating to try and make my point more reasonable

    Some vendors are more then others. Maybe one day I'll have the in and order straight from Enphase.
