Enphase announced last week on their blog that they will lay off 11% of their workforce, raise additional capital and eliminate some non-core projects:

As part of the restructuring, Enphase is reducing our worldwide staff by approximately 11% and eliminating certain non-core projects. The restructuring actions are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Laying off 11% of the workforce is significant. As painful as these decisions are, I'm glad to see they are willing to make them. There is a lot of churning in general in the alternative energy world. No thanks to the variability of subsidies, which makes it nearly impossible to plan long-term.

And being an election year in the U.S., the next 4 years are especially uncertain.
