In a photovoltaic system, solar panels are strung together in a series and connected to a central inverter. The problem with this approach is the same problem that one experiences with Christmas lights: when one bulb (or in this case, a solar panel) underperforms, the whole line underperforms. The team that founded Tigo Energy in 2007 recognized this problem and set their minds on a solution.
Since then, Tigo Energy has grown and introduced their unique solution, the Tigo Energy Maximizer for systems of any scale. The company's maximizer can improve energy output by up to 20%.
