Tigo Energy and Solar Juice have formed a strategic distribution partnership to meet the growing demand form Tigo optimized solutions in Australia. Being one of the largest Australian distributor, Solar Juice will carry Tigo Energy’s retrofit optimizer product as well as smart modules optimized by Tigo, which is an optimizer embedded in the solar module junction box.
Solar Juice will immediately start to carry Tigo Energy’s industry-leading retrofit optimizer product, which can be used on any solar module and works with any solar inverter. They will also carry Trina Solar’s new line of Trinasmart modules, optimized by Tigo Energy. These modules feature Tigo Energy’s optimizer built directly into the module junction box, requiring no extra boxes to install.
“This strategic partnership with Tigo Energy will bring their advanced optimization solutions to the rapidly growing Australia market, one of the top five markets in the world,” said Andrew Burgess co-founder and sales director of Solar Juice.
Tigo Energy’s technology is an open-architecture solution in the solar optimization space. The Tigo solution works with any inverter giving customers the full range of options for their design and installation preferences. Tigo’s technology incorporates module-level MPPT providing superior design flexibility, shade tolerance, and increased energy harvest. The technology enhances system safety with remote and automatic shutdown at the module-level and enables monitoring of every module in the array.
“Tigo Energy has been active in Australia for the last four years and has demonstrated a strong track record of growth on top of its reputation for good customer service and product reliability,” said Jeff Routledge GM of Australia. “We are pleased to partner with Australia’s distributor to further grow our efforts here and to help drive solar to even greater adoption in this market.”
