TORONTO, Ontario and LOS GATOS, Calif., Dec 5, 2011 –Eclipsall announced today that the company has entered into an agreement with Tigo Energy• for ongoing supply of Tigo Energy’s Maximizer™ solution. Eclipsall will incorporate Tigo Energy’s module-level technology into its high performance 60 and 72 cell photovoltaic (PV) modules that Eclipsall manufactures at its plant in Toronto, Canada.
Tigo Energy is the market leader in Smart Module technology for PV solar installations. The Maximizer solution increases PV solar panel energy production up to 20 percent and presents new levels of intelligence, active manageability and enhanced safety.
Specifically, the Maximizer solution enables owners of PV projects of any size (residential, commercial or utility scale) to increase power production by reducing the effects of shade, dust, clouds and uneven temperature on system performance. The technology also delivers accurate data and analysis (at the module level) to keep long-term system operations at peak performance while enhancing safety of rooftop PV systems. By deploying the Eclipsall Smart Module enabled by Tigo Energy, system owners will enjoy more power generation while slashing operations and maintenance budgets.
“We look to partner with best-in-class firms whose products and services strengthen our overall value proposition for customers. Tigo Energy is a perfect example of that business practice,” said Les Lyster, CEO of Eclipsall.
“As Eclipsall is a leader in the Canadian PV market, we see many of our current customers installing their NRG series modules,” said Jeff Krisa, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Tigo Energy. “By combining the Tigo Energy Maximizer with Eclipsall’s high performance PV modules, we'll deliver the first made-in-Ontario SmartModule that delivers all the value of distributed electronics with lowest cost and labor impact.”
Both Tigo Energy and Eclipsall will be exhibiting at the 2011 CanSIA-sponsored Solar Canada Conference & Exhibition Dec. 5-6 in Toronto. The first SmartModule for the Ontario market will be displayed in each exhibit (Tigo Energy, Booth # 801 and Eclipsall Energy Group, Booth # 717).
Eclipsall Energy Group is a vertically integrated solar company. Already established as a manufacturer of high performance 60 and 72 cell PV modules, the company has since added an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) division, Eclipsall Solar, as well as a project development and financing division, Eclipsall Development.
