Tigo Energy, Inc. announced that the company is taking orders for the Energy Intelligence (EI) Inverter and Battery product lines from residential installers in the United States. These new hardware solutions expand the Tigo product portfolio with a focus on ease-of-installation, more efficient system maintenance and management, and increased flexibility for installers. The new line of EI Battery and Inverter products will allow U.S.-based residential installers to benefit from native integrations of Tigo technology with solar and storage components. The program represents an extension of the Tigo Enhanced commercial and industrial solar partnership program into the residential market.
Tigo Energy has led solar innovation with its TS4 Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) by providing the freedom for customers to choose the features and components for their solar installations. With almost fifteen years of MLPE leadership in the industry, Tigo is continuing to build its portfolio to provide comprehensive hardware and software solutions for discerning solar and storage installers. The new Tigo EI Battery and Inverter products carry on the Company’s tradition of offering flexibility and choice across global solar markets between 10 kW and 10 MW, including broad compatibility with third-party components.
The new Tigo EI Inverters offer high-efficiency energy conversion for home consumption or export to the grid. When used in combination with Tigo TS4 MLPE products, it provides module-level optimization, monitoring and rapid shutdown, and enables home energy backup when paired with a home energy storage system like the Tigo EI Battery.
