LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tigo Energy Inc., (“Tigo”) the leader in smart module technology, announces its strategic partnership with Sunpreme, a global solar photovoltaic growth company, offering the market Sunpreme’s industry-leading Bi-facial Solar Smart modules integrated with Tigo’s groundbreaking TS4-L product, to provide the market the most advanced and powerful PV modules available. Integrating Tigo’s top tier TS4-L (Long Strings) technology into Supreme’s modules will allow solar installers the ability to utilize a reduced maximum circuit voltage to increase string length by up to 30%. TS4-L is Tigo’s most advanced product, allowing for long strings, industry-maximum optimization, safety, and monitoring capabilities.
“We are thrilled to be working with Sunpreme to offer installers superior TS4 integrated Smart Bi-facial Solar PV modules”
“We chose Tigo’s top-of-the-line TS4-L because its high quality matched that of our Bi-facial Solar modules. Sunpreme Smart Modules are an industry game-changer offering our clients the high performance Bi-facial, double glass solar modules integrated with Tigo’s TS4-L--to maximize energy yield, and increase string length up to 30%. This collaboration enables Sunpreme to continue to offer our customers the most technically advanced smart module on the market, with the greatest custom design flexibility in mind while reducing BOS costs -- to maximize project financial returns and its lifetime yield,” said Surinder Bedi, Executive Vice President for Market Development, System Products and Global Quality and Reliability at Supreme.
TS4-L features the cutting-edge Predictive IV tracking technology utilizing PV modules’ unique parameters and advanced analytics to predict the most optimum settings, allowing the PV module to generate the maximum energy possible in the industry. The features of TS4-L are described in more detail below:
- (Diodes): Most reliable standard JBox dissipating heat away from the module, minimizing hot spots
- (Monitoring): Remotely collects data in two second increments: voltage, current, temperature, manufacturer name, module type, date manufactured, barcode, and much more wirelessly via module-level communication; lowers operations and maintenance (O&M) costs considerably
- (Safety): Rapid shutdown compliant via module-level deactivation, supports anti- theft and revenue protection functionality (includes TS4-Monitoring capabilities)
- (Optimization): Addresses shade, increases energy density, system level mismatch mitigation, and age tolerance for maximum energy harvesting (includes Monitoring and Safety capabilities)
- (Long Strings): Increases string length by up to 30% via voltage control mechanism of each module (includes Monitoring, Safety, and Optimization capabilities)
“We are thrilled to be working with Sunpreme to offer installers superior TS4 integrated Smart Bi-facial Solar PV modules,” said Zvi Alon, CEO of Tigo Energy. “Sunpreme has demonstrated an unprecedented level of care and quality in the design and marketing of their leading products. Together we will be able to offer a transformative module tailored to the needs of our customers without limiting them in design or functionality, whether they want to monitor their system at the module-level, or improve overall system performance with optimization. TS4-L’s long string capability will enable installers to work around module capacity limits, promising our customers their greatest ROI at the lowest cost on the market.”
Tigo is the market leader in smart module technology for the solar industry. The Silicon Valley Company utilizes a patented technology to increase energy production, simplify design and installation, improve fire safety, and ensure the highest uptime and reliability with cloud-based monitoring. Tigo’s modular TS4 platform can be selectively deployed with different functionalities per module at different price points utilizing Predictive IV (PIV) technology to maximize energy harvest at minimal cost. Tigo’s integrated solution is the first and most successful smart module solution in the industry. Tigo is online at tigoenergy.com.
