(In thousands, except per share and percentage data)
Our total revenue increased 20%, compared to the first quarter of 2022. Our microinverter shipments were up 18%, compared to the first quarter of 2022. Our IQ Battery shipments were up 10%, compared to the first quarter of 2022. Our non-GAAP gross margin was 42.2% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 41.0% in the first quarter of 2022, driven by a favorable product mix.
Our non-GAAP operating expenses were $71.2 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $66.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to increased investment in R&D, customer service, sales, and IT infrastructure. Our non-GAAP operating income was $152.4 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $114.5 million in the first quarter of 2022.
We exited the second quarter of 2022 with $1.25 billion in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities and generated $200.7 million in cash flow from operations in the second quarter of 2022. Our capital expenditures were $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $12.4 million in the first quarter of 2022.
Our quarterly revenue in the second quarter of 2022 was driven by strong demand for Enphase Energy Systems, powered by IQ® Microinverters and IQ Batteries. IQ8™ Microinverters constituted 37% of all our microinverter shipments during the second quarter. The grid-forming IQ8 Microinverters can provide Sunlight Backup™ during an outage, even without a battery. And, with the Sunlight Jump Start™ feature, IQ8 Microinverters can restart a home energy system using sunlight only after prolonged grid outages that may result in a fully depleted battery.
Our IQ Battery shipments increased to 132.4 megawatt hours in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 120.4 megawatt hours in the first quarter of 2022. We shipped batteries to the United States, Germany, and Belgium during the second quarter, and made updates to improve the installer and homeowner experience. We now have more than 1,600 installers worldwide that are certified to install our IQ Batteries.
Our revenue in Europe for the second quarter of 2022 increased 69%, compared to the first quarter of 2022, led by strong growth in the Netherlands and Germany. Homeowners want self-consumption as the region not only faces rising energy prices but also a growing demand for home electrification driven by EVs and natural gas shortages. We expect to introduce IQ Batteries in more European countries during the second half of 2022.
Our strategy is to build best-in-class home energy systems and deliver them to homeowners through our installer and distribution partners, enabled by an installer platform. We have completed five acquisitions in the last six quarters, one for EV chargers and four to help create our installer platform. We shipped more than 8,250 ClipperCreek EV chargers to U.S. customers in the second quarter of 2022 and expect healthy growth going forward. We are working to move production to our manufacturing partner in Mexico, making our chargers smart and integrating the EV chargers into our home energy management systems.
We recently acquired SolarLeadFactory LLC to provide high-quality leads to our installers and further strengthen our installer platform. In January 2021, we acquired Sofdesk Inc. to provide solar design software capability and approximately 950 installers are using the Solargraf software. We acquired a business in Noida, India in March 2021 to provide proposal and permitting services for installers and are focused on automating these services. In December 2021, we acquired 365 Pronto, Inc. to simplify maintenance for installers by matching cleantech asset owners to a local and on-demand workforce of service providers. All four acquisitions aim to make life simpler for installers by providing them high-quality products and services, ultimately reducing their soft costs.
On April 19, 2022, Enphase Energy announced that ADT Solar™, formerly Sunpro Solar, a leading rooftop solar provider and one of the fastest-growing residential solar-plus-storage service providers across 22 states in the United States, is now exclusively offering Enphase IQ8 Microinverters as part of its comprehensive home energy solution.
On May 9, 2022, Enphase Energy announced that Enphase IQ Batteries now officially support the most common third-party string inverters in Belgium and Germany, helping meet the increasing demand for energy independence in the region. Since the 2021 launch of the IQ Battery in Belgium and Germany, installers of Enphase products have seen increasing deployments of Enphase Energy Systems powered by IQ Microinverters and Enphase IQ Batteries, as well as residential solar-only energy systems powered by IQ7™, IQ7+™, and IQ7A™ Microinverters.
On May 23, 2022, Enphase Energy announced that the Enphase IQ8 Microinverter system is the first in the world to be certified by UL, a global safety science leader, to UL 1741, 3rd edition including the Supplement SB. This certification meets the new North American safety and grid interconnection standards for connecting solar inverters, energy storage systems, and distributed energy resources to the grid in compliance with IEEE 1547-2018 and IEEE 1547-1 2020.
Enphase Energy recently announced that installers in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Washington, New Mexico, Texas, New York, Florida, Hawaii, Missouri, Michigan, Southern California, and Puerto Rico have seen growing deployments of the Enphase Energy System powered by IQ Microinverters and IQ Batteries.
