Tigo Energy, a California- and Israel-based solar startup developing technology to increase efficiency in photovoltaic (PV) installations announced yesterday that it found its first US partner AEE Solar to carry Tigo’s Energy Maximizer System as a catalog product.
According to the company, the system provides an innovative solution to maximizing power output in today’s PV systems, up to a 20% improvement from the same PV array.
With over 25 systems installed around the world and operational for over 12 months, Tigo Energy has gathered significant data on reliability, stability and up time in real world conditions for improved energy harvest.
“The system works in harmony with current PV system components to increase the energy harvest, system visibility and operational safety of residential, commercial and utility-scale PV systems,” said David Katz, founder and CEO of AEE Solar.
AEE Solar is one of the largest and oldest wholesale solar distributors of solar, wind and micro-hydroelectric systems and equipment. AEE provides everything needed to design, install, upgrade, and maintain renewable energy power systems. AEE Solar helps engineer systems for residential, commercial, industrial, mobile and specialty applications.
“We believe AEE Solar’s 30 years of PV expertise will help introduce the benefits of the innovative TIGO Energy Maximizer System across the US,” stated Jeff Krisa, Tigo Energy’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Tigo Energy will be offering demonstrations of the TIGO Energy Maximizer System at Intersolar North America on until July 16. An analysis of real-world PV systems and side-by-side comparisons with and without the system will be available, as well as more information about how Tigo Energy can improve residential, commercial and utility-scale systems in new and retrofit installations.
