Yaskawa Solectria Solar Joins Tigo Enhanced, Further Streamlining Commercial Rooftop PV

November 18, 2020

Yaskawa Solectria Solar has joined the Tigo Enhanced initiative, aimed at providing customers with simple and reliable rapid shutdown solutions that meet all safety and code requirements. All Solectria inverters that are Tigo Enhanced are plug-and-play out of the box with Tigo’s latest generation rapid shutdown devices.

“We are excited to join the Tigo Enhanced program to generate more awareness about our solutions and make fulfilling safety and certification requirements as easy as possible for our customers,” said Mark Goodreau, General Manager of Yaskawa Solectria Solar.

Solectria’s Tigo Enhanced inverters have integrated Tigo’s RSS transmitter – that communicates with Tigo’s rapid shutdown devices – and completed UL PV Rapid Shutdown System (PVRSS) certification. The following inverters are part of the program:

  •    –   Solectria PVI 60TL (3 phase, 60kW, 480Vac)
  •    –   Solectria PVI 50TL (3 phase, 50kW, 480Vac)
  •    –   Solectria PVI 25TL-208 (3 phase, 25kW, 208Vac)
  •    –   Solectria PVI 25TL-480-R (3 phase, 25kW, 480Vac)

Customers can now look for the Tigo Enhanced logo on Solectria’s inverters and know that they are getting a product that seamlessly works with Tigo’s rapid shutdown devices.

“We have worked with Yaskawa Solectria Solar for a long time and are honored to have them as a partner in the Tigo Enhanced program,” said Dru Sutton, VP of Sales for North America at Tigo Energy. “Ultimately, this is about providing assurance to customers that when they choose a Solectria inverter that is Tigo Enhanced, they know they’re getting a reliable, proven, certified rapid shutdown solution.”

Yaskawa Solectria Solar and Tigo received UL PVRSS certification after testing the inverter and rapid shutdown devices for compatibility and safety. The certification fulfills a necessary safety requirement for PV Rapid Shutdown in the National Electrical Code. Rapid shutdown devices are now required with rooftop PV installations across the vast majority of the United States.

The companies are hosting a live webinar on Thursday, November 19 at 10am PT (1pm ET) to highlight their combined rapid shutdown solutions for commercial PV customers. Interested parties can register here.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
