To create smart modules, Tigo Energy’s optimizers are integrated into the junction boxes of Upsolar modules during the manufacturing process, which enhances the flexibility of system design, eases the installation process and reduces balance of systems costs. These benefits are made possible by utilizing patented impedance matching technology to maximize power harvest at the module level. Additionally, systems featuring smart modules are equipped with real-time monitoring capabilities, allowing customers to access and analyze performance data at the module level through Tigo Energy’s module-level monitoring software and mobile app.
