  • Tigo Energy’s optimizers leverage proprietary impedance matching technology to increase the power harvest of each module and mitigate performance challenges related to soiling, cloud-induced shading, module mismatch and temperature differentials

The first smart modules certified by TÜV Rheinland PTL for Europe and North America, Upsolar’s products are now available for residential, commercial and utility-scale installations.

Tigo Energy’s optimizers leverage proprietary impedance matching technology to increase the power harvest of each module and mitigate performance challenges related to soiling, cloud-induced shading, module mismatch and temperature differentials. Optimizers also enable a reduction in balance of systems costs through increased string lengths, as well as enhanced safety and fire protection through arc fault protection. The product is suitable for both sloped and flat rooftops, as well as ground-mounted systems.

To create a smart module, optimizers are embedded into Upsolar modules’ junction boxes during the module manufacturing process. By integrating the two units, Upsolar can offer its customers seamless installation and lower operation and maintenance costs while enhancing overall system performance. Additionally, users can remotely monitor performance at the module and system levels through Tigo Energy’s module-level monitoring software and mobile app.

Upsolar and Tigo Energy collaborated earlier this year with Talmage Solar Engineering on a 2.2 MW solar array in Sharon, VT, USA featuring retrofitted optimizers.
