Renewable Analytics

Renewable Dashboard provides business visibility into the Performance & Operations of Solar Sites. It provides centralized data to generate compliance reports and to monitor & report against Solar O&M assets (i.e. Schools & Government locations, residential solar locations).It captures performance of individual solar sites displaying distinct metrics calculated considering Weather Data, Actual Energy (Meter Data), Array Capacity and De-rate Factor. It tracks Solar Panel Tracker Issues for individual sites, renders past energy trends, and tracks asset maintenance, eequipments & work orders. Upper Management benefits from “CapEx” & “OpEx” dollar trends, cost per KW & KWH and variance in budget by Month & Year.
