Built in Arecibo, the system was designed and installed by Tigo installer partner CEnergyS Solar Solutions, a renewable energy systems company serving Puerto Rico for more than 12 years. The Tigo EI Residential Solar Solution is composed of Tigo TS4 Flex MLPE products, the Tigo EL Inverter and a modular DC-coupled EI Battery.

Installation of the EI Residential Solar Solution, which is designed to generate and store solar energy throughout the day, comes on the heels of a recently announced roadmap to achieve a 100% renewable energy in Puerto Rico by 2050. The 5.6-kW installation in Arecibo is equipped with the OGP and LUMA-certified 7.6-kW Tigo EI Inverter, a 10-kWh EI Battery, 200A Tigo Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) and 20 Tigo TS4-A-O Flex MLPE devices.

“The battery installation was so easy that a large part can be done by one person alone,” said Abdeel Molina, owner of CEnergyS Solar Solutions. “The integration of the ATS, inverter and the battery was very simple, too.”

With the Tigo Energy Intelligence monitoring platform, CEnergyS Solar Solutions has full access, control and module-level visibility into the installation. The hybrid architecture of the EI Inverter can provide a wider operating voltage range, enabling energy production earlier in the morning and later into the evening.

The EI Batteries are charged directly by DC (direct current) electricity and take advantage of the inverter’s 2:1 DC oversizing ratio to charge the batteries with additional power that would otherwise be lost. For grid-tied systems, the Tigo ATS senses grid loss and automatically switches between grid-tied solar, islanding with solar + storage, or battery-only, as needed.

“Because Puerto Rico is so frequently exposed to the extremes of tropical weather and hurricanes, our EI Residential must deliver resilience for inclement weather, and the combination of quality products and quality installation makes both possible,” said Jing Tian, chief growth officer at Tigo Energy. “Further, the CEnergyS customers who rely on their solar + storage installations for electricity can be confident that any system issues can be quickly identified, diagnosed and remedied with the help of our remote monitoring platform. At Tigo, we are laser-focused on combining powerful software with outstanding quality, from our shipping dock to system commissioning and beyond, to help homeowners keep the lights on when the grid goes down.”
