Upsolar, a leading international provider of solar PV modules, today announced the completion of its largest project in the United States to date: a 2.2 MW solar power plant in Sharon, VT. Constructed by New England-based Talmage Solar Engineering, Inc., the system incorporates Tigo Energy’s Module Maximizer™ technology to feed optimized renewable energy directly into the local grid.
“In collaborating with Tigo Energy, we’ve again demonstrated our unwavering commitment to expanding the U.S. solar market through product variety and technological innovation”
.By integrating Tigo Energy’s power optimizers into its modules, Upsolar boosts power output across the entire system. Tigo also provides digital monitoring services at the module level to ensure the system is operating to its fullest potential at any given moment.
“In collaborating with Tigo Energy, we’ve again demonstrated our unwavering commitment to expanding the U.S. solar market through product variety and technological innovation,” said Troy Dalbey, Managing Director of Upsolar America. “We look forward to demonstrating the performance-enhancing capabilities of our smart module solution with this system, as well as upcoming projects across the country.”
The Sharon project is composed of 9,562 UP-M230 polycrystalline modules, all backed by the Upsolar’s Reinforced Warranty. Featuring trigger points at years 3, 7, 12, 16, 20 and 25, the company’s Reinforced Warranty ensures its modules will maintain high levels of performance over the long term.
“Upsolar’s reliable modules paired with Tigo Energy’s power optimizers offered us the ideal balance of quality, performance and affordability required to bring this project to life,” said Kale Inoue, Chief Financial Officer of Talmage Solar Engineering, Inc. “The combined advantages of the Upsolar’s tier-1 specs and Tigo Energy’s innovative technology will ensure that this system will outperform a traditional array at a lower cost per kilowatt hour.”
Representatives from Upsolar, Talmage Solar Engineering and Tigo Energy will be on hand for a project commissioning ceremony on August 11, 2012 to be held at 301 Commerce Park Drive, Sharon, VT.
