    Hello Peter Metcalf

    Thank you for your contribution to the Tigo Community. 

    The terminology is briefly explained in the Tour of the Tigo Portal. Basically, it comes down to this...

    • Solar Base = The power that would be produced, if the system was not using Tigo optimization.
    • Solar Reclaimed = The additional power that is produced, because of using Tigo Optimizers.

    How does the Tigo Portal arrive at these numbers? Very simply... The Tigo Cloud receives the data coming from each PV Module and calculates how often our Optimizer function is engaged. It then subtracts those extra earnings from the total (or gross) output, to give you the Solar Base and the Solar Reclaimed (or net) data.

    I hope this helps to clear things up a bit. Have a sunny day!
