About Tigo

Tigo is an American based solar panel optimiser company that was founded in 2007. Combining a unique systems-level approach with expertise in semiconductors, power electronics, and solar energy, Tigo developed the first-generation Module Optimizer technology for the solar industry in 2007.

 

Today, Tigo offers a full platform of integrated and retrofitted (mounted on an existing installed PV system) and communications technology. By partnering with tier 1 panel and inverter manufacturers in the industry, Tigo is able to focus on its key innovation with the TS4 Platform.

 

Selective Deployment of Optimization: When using a single string per MPPT, optimization can be selectively deployed on the shaded modules.  By using optimization only where needed, you can optimize system performance at a lower cost.

Tigo Case Studies

36% Energy Boost with Tigo’s Retrofitted Optimization

 

A Greek residential PV system significantly improves energy harvest over 6 months with Tigo’s TS4-R-O’s.

First Full Mega Solar PV system in Japan

 

Without the Tigo optimizers on the array, the plant would be producing 5-10% less than a traditional array.
