Upsolar has released smart modules featuring optimizers from Tigo Energy in the U.K. solar market. The product is currently available through Upsolar distribution partner Ecolution, a local PV service provider.
To create smart modules, Tigo Energy's optimizers are integrated into the junction boxes of Upsolar modules during the manufacturing process. According to the companies, this approach enhances the flexibility of system design, eases the installation process and reduces balance-of-system costs. Additionally, systems featuring smart modules are equipped with real-time monitoring capabilities.
