“2020 has been a breakout year for Tigo and 2021 has the potential for even greater success,” stated Zvi Alon, Chairman and CEO of Tigo. “We are excited to have the EG Momentum team’s support and their working capital will enable us to better serve our current customer base and invest in the future expansion with new customers, new partners and new projects.”
What’s new: Tigo’s growth has accelerated significantly recently as the company’s products have reached more customer segments and countries throughout the world. With over 40,000 installations in over 100 countries on all 7 continents, Tigo systems generate more than 1 GWh of daily solar production. Tigo’s solutions are deployed in solar energy generators ranging from single kilowatt residential solar installations to multi-megawatt utility scale sites, roof-top, ground mount and floating systems.
What’s next: Tigo will continue to invest in the personnel, systems and business process improvement to market and support this breadth of customers. Tigo’s products are certified globally. A major differentiator is the UL-system-certification focus. Tigo’s solutions secured certification with hundreds of inverters from more than 15 manufacturers – giving customers significantly more options than any other company in the industry. This UL certification is part of Tigo’s multivendor initiative providing customers with the freedom to choose the features they want with the inverter they want.
“We look for talented and experienced management in order to support digital and renewable energy investments that simultaneously increase market value and reduce carbon emissions,” stated John Wilson, founding partner at Energy Growth Momentum, “And the combination of Zvi and Tigo Energy represents just such an investment.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
