Tigoâ€™s smart technologies track solar production and boost the performance and efficiency of a DC solar array. Its UL-certified rapid shutdown solutions reduce electrical shock hazards for emergency responders.
Like Tigo, San Diego based NeoVolta delivers safety and high performance. TheÂ NV14 home solar storage systemÂ has a higher capacity (14.4 kilowatt-hours) and discharges more power (7.7 kilowatts) than most competitors in its class. Its advanced battery chemistry uses lithium iron phosphate, which has been proven to beÂ safer, cleaner, and longer-lastingÂ than ordinary lithium ion. For its high capacity and safe, long-lasting battery, the NV14 was named one of Solar Power Worldâ€™sÂ Top Solar Storage Products for 2019.
NeoVolta batteries can be installed with any residential solar system, AC or DC. However, installing a battery with DC solar is 11% to 20% more efficient than pairing it with AC solar, which requires multiple stages of power conversion. Over ten years, this translates to approximately $3,000 in efficiency savings. Also, AC solar costs between $3,000â€“$4,000 to install.Â For a DC installation with Tigoâ€™s rapid shutdown and optimization modules, that cost is approximately $1,200, for an additional savings of $1,800â€“$2,800.
â€śTigo is one of the most trusted names in PV technology, so this is a very important certification for us,â€ť said NeoVolta CEO Brent Willson. â€śBecause the NeoVolta NV14 storage system is compatible with Tigoâ€™s DC optimization and monitoring modules, homeowners who combine the two will enjoy many years of peak performance, savings, and safety.â€ť
