What is it that makes this an important event for your company? 

We’re interested to see how the San Diego audience compares to the San Francisco audience for the newly relocated Intersolar North America. Like other solar events, this is provides a time and place to reconnect face-to-face with our partners and customers in the beginning of what is already proving to be a very busy year.


Intersolar has many educational sessions, forums & Demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?

Not this year – however Tigo is part of Solar Comedy Slam’s judging team on Wednesday night! Contact us for a free ticket.


What are you projecting for 2020? Do you see more growth or turmoil ahead for solar and the economy? 

We see outstanding growth for the North American solar marketing in 2020. Between rapid shutdown regulations of NEC 2017 coming into effect; module-level monitoring becoming an obvious ROI tool; and the realization that MLPE’s optimization provides proof of reclaimed power, Tigo is very excited for a big year!


Do you think the solar industry is in a good position to grow through what may be a bumpy next few years? 

Absolutely! The US solar industry is a resilient market that will continue to grow for residential and C&I when it has so many active players. Manufacturers, EPC’s, installers, advocates, and other groups are making major headway to make sure safety requirements, renewable energy policies, job growth, access to data, etc. continue to be viable.
