Meet Performance Expectations with Our Monitoring Systems
Monitoring your energy system's performance is a big part of making sure
your investment is on track to meet performance expectations and may be
required if you are participating in certain grant programs or selling
Sustainable Renewable Energy Credits. Advanced monitoring solutions can
provide greater functionality and detailed information about system performance
by monitoring subsystems of the larger whole in order to provide greater
insight on performance and enable focused operations and maintenance procedures.
Aside from periodic checkups, one way we ensure your system is operating
optimally is through the following monitoring systems:
Inverter based monitoring: Most inverter equipment will feature a digital display that provides basic
information about the current state of your system as well as some level
of historical performance data. This type of monitoring may or may not
report to a manufacturer-hosted website where you can view more detailed
information about the system's performance as well as the environmental
benefits your system has achieved.
Third party monitoring: There are several third party providers of equipment and services for
PV performance monitoring. In addition to performance monitoring, these
platforms may also include weather stations and other sensors that are
used to gauge the performance of your system in real-world conditions.
This can help SunPower by South Coast Solar identify and correct performance issues.
On-site and web-based "Revenue Grade" monitoring: SunPower by South Coast Solar can also integrate monitoring solutions
that provide revenue-grade capabilities as a strictly hardware-based solution
or as a system with control infrastructure for local, national, and international
Energy Management Systems. This represents the highest level of renewable
energy integration and plays a key role as part of our nation’s
utility infrastructure. System owners wanting to future-proof large installations
for possible integration into the coming “Smartgrid” will
want to consider these options, which are already required for certain
