Tigo Energy is now selling its Energy Intelligence (EI) Inverter and Battery product lines to residential installers in the United States. The company says these new solutions are designed by Tigo, but manufactured by partners.
The new Tigo EI string 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 LFP EI Battery. Available in 7.6 kW and 11.4 kW configurations, the products feature:
Up to 200% DC oversizing
50V starting voltage
Built-in Wi-Fi and optional cellular communication
Modular and lightweight design
The new Tigo Energy Intelligence Battery provides energy bill management for time-of-use rate plans and backup energy in the event of a grid outage. To satisfy a comprehensive array of home energy needs, the EI Battery can be configured for both whole-home and critical load backup. Tigo EI Battery systems are rated at 9.9 kWh of energy per enclosure, with usable capacity of 9.0 kWh, and feature:
Scalability up to 40 kWh, with four enclosures per inverter
Warranty protection of 132 months or 6,000 cycles
5 kW continuous and 6 kW peak power
Operating range between 14-122°F
The Tigo Energy Intelligence product line allows for maximum flexibility in an integrated system that is easy to install, fast to commission and convenient to maintain through the Tigo EI mobile app and a browser-based program. The Tigo EI platform provides system diagnosis and over-the-air software upgrades. In addition, energy production is clearly monitored and analyzed for greater visibility and understanding of energy systems. With industry-leading warranties on all hardware, homeowners and installers can continue to rely on product performance and support from Tigo Energy.
“With the addition of the battery and inverter products, we now offer a comprehensive solar + storage system that maintains the flexibility and choice our customers have come to expect from Tigo,” said Zvi Alon, CEO at Tigo Energy. “As with our Flex MLPE products, the new EI Battery and Inverter products provide a very simple installation and commissioning process as well as powerful fleet management features. The end customer, in turn, will benefit from access to an abundance of resilient, renewable and safe energy with a system that can be precisely tailored for price and performance.”
