Tigo Energy today announced it has received a positive bankability report from BEW Engineering for module-level optimizers.
This endorsement from BEW validates that Tigo Energy’s PV optimizer is suitable for deployment in commercial- and utility-scale bank-owned solar systems, and recommends Tigo Energy’s products, practices and processes.
This in-depth study from BEW includes assessments about the PV optimizer’s production, performance and usability. It cites Tigo Energy’s design as a simple power circuit topology using standard and robust components. Also notable in the report was Tigo Energy’s exclusion of electrolytic capacitors, which improves system reliability.
Other features that contributed to the positive review include:
- Fire and arc prevention
- Increased energy harvest
- Module-level performance monitoring & intelligent alert systems
- The optimizer’s high efficiency
Tigo Energy will showcase its next-generation module technologies at Solar Power International 2012 in Orlando, Florida, 10-13 September, in booth 3133.
