Openhab Enphase Energy Binding

I installed the Enphase Energy Binding according to the OH web instructions.
I modified /etc/openhab2/services/enphaseenergy.cfg according to the instructions (API key + user ID).
I created a simple Item file (.items) using only the suggested entry for the number of Enphase micro-inverter modules (type = Number, including my Enphase site-id before the # character), and added this Item to my Sitemap file.

The Item- and Sitemap files are accepted by OH without warnings/errors, but the number of installed micro-inverters seems empty (-).
In the provided example items file, it seems a Thing or a Group named “Solar” is used, is this name mandatory? Or should I replace this by something specific/different? If have no Thing file defined, is this correct?

Thank you for your help/suggestions.
