Tigo Energy, Inc., Campbell, California, the solar industry’s leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) supplier, announced today that EnPower Star LLC, Calabasas, California, has deployed its clean, renewable and affordable energy storage systems using the Tigo TS4-A-2F and RSS Transmitter to enable rapid shutdown for PV modules.
The Tigo TS4-A-2F is a reliable, cost effective rapid shutdown solution that meets the latest module level shutdown requirements, including NEC 2017/2020. The TS4-A-2F is UL PVRSS certified for use with the largest network of inverters, many of which feature a built in RSS transmitter. By connecting to two modules, the TS4-A-2F reduces labor time and enables 16% fewer connections on a 14-panel string compared to single channel MLPE.
“It is imperative that our systems are available to the public at an affordable rate so that they can be deployed quickly to meet the growing market need for energy storage,” according to Steve Hopwood, Managing Partner, EnPower Star. “We use the Tigo TS4 product because it is simple and trusted, making it ideal as a plug-and-play rapid shutdown solution across the breadth of installers around the United States.”
The EnPower Star energy storage systems enable both homeowners and commercial customers to gain access to safe, reliable, and efficient power management that harnesses the full potential of renewable sources and leverages off-peak low-cost grid energy. The system includes the ARO High Voltage Battery, EPS MIN3000I-MIN11400I Inverters, the EPS ATS and Split Phase Transformers, EPS Smart Meter, as well as the ShinePhone and ShineServer Smart Monitor.
