German term or phrase: gleich doppelt
I'm not sure precisely what this term means in this context:

Das integrierte Solar- Systemmodul SM10, die Solarregelung, optimiert **gleich doppelt** den solaren Ertrag, indem sie für die Nachheizunterdrückung sorgt und separat den höchstmöglichen Warmwasserkomfort sicherstellt.

What's confusing me is that the previous sentence states:

Die Solarsystemregelung ermöglicht einen bis zu 10 % höheren solaren Zugewinn. Der Heizkessel muss
weniger zuheizen, die Brennerstarts werden reduziert.

Can anyone throw any light on this for me?

Many thanks

in two ways at once
Explanation:
That's my take; they would really be unable to double the output, but "doppelt" is frequently used as meaning "in two ways".
