Upsolar’s Tigo-Integrated Smart Modules Now Available for UK Solar Market

MCS-certified product now offered through Ecolution Renewables

LONDON – January 29, 2013 – Upsolar, a leading international provider of solar PV modules, today announced the UK availability of its smart modules powered by Tigo Energy. The product is currently available through Upsolar distribution partner Ecolution Renewables, a local PV service provider with nearly two decades of regional experience.

To create smart modules, Tigo Energy’s optimizers are integrated into the junction boxes of Upsolar modules during the manufacturing process, which enhances the flexibility of system design, eases the installation process and reduces balance of systems costs. These benefits are made possible by utilizing patented impedance matching technology to maximize power harvest at the module-level. Additionally, systems featuring smart modules are equipped with real-time monitoring capabilities, allowing customers to access and analyze performance data at the module level through Tigo Energy’s module-level monitoring software and mobile app.

“Upsolar is known for its meticulous attention to product quality and customer service—characteristics we hold in high esteem for both our partners and ourselves,” said Richard Jenkins, Managing Director for Ecolution Renewables. “We’re proud to offer our customers Upsolar’s full product suite, including smart modules, as we strive to make solar power available to all.”

“Aligning our company with a reputable name like Ecolution Renewables vastly expands our reach across the region,” said Justin Canning, Upsolar’s UK Manager. “As Upsolar’s valued partner offering MCS-certified smart modules, Ecolution can provide its customers with a major opportunity to further enhance their PV offering.”
