Campbell, Calif., December 16, 2021 — Tigo Energy, Inc., the solar industry’s worldwide leader in Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics), today celebrates an installation milestone with its Tigo Enhanced inverter partner, Sungrow Power Supply Co., Ltd, the U.S. market leader for 3-phase string inverters. The partnership powers 50MW of Tigo Enhanced solar installations throughout North America in the commercial and industrial market and has generated significant co-marketing funds for Sungrow. Tigo Enhanced is a comprehensive partnership program that promotes partners who improve the installer experience with UL tested and integrated Tigo rapid shutdown, energy monitoring, and optimization technologies.
The Tigo Enhanced partnership program formalizes collaboration on technical integrations, product certification, customer support, and marketing with major inverter companies. Sungrow joined the Tigo Enhanced partnership program in October 2020 and has integrated more than 2,200 Tigo Rapid Shutdown System (RSS) Transmitter units into its inverters. Sungrow’s industry-leading commercial inverters have been deployed with hundreds of thousands of Tigo TS4 Flex MLPE products.
“Our work through the Tigo Enhanced program has allowed us to provide compatible, reliable solutions that simplify the installation process and give peace of mind to solar installers,” said Naveed Hassan, Director of External Affairs at Sungrow Americas. “With the built-in Tigo RSS Transmitter and UL Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown System (PVRSS) certification, installers get rapid shutdown solutions for their projects that are simple to install and reliable.”
Tigo incentivizes its program partners to promote Tigo Enhanced inverters by allocating marketing funds for every inverter sold under the program. In addition, the Tigo Enhanced logo, displayed on Tigo Flex MLPE products and inverter partner products, creates a clear visual link of compatibility between devices. With 13 years of experience with MLPE and leadership in commercial and residential industries, Tigo is refining plug-and-play solar solutions and ensuring maximum performance and longevity for PV projects.
