Get Insight into Distributed PV Assets

Monitoring systems can tell you that a system isn’t meeting performance expectations, but they can’t tell you why. Until now. Locus Energy’s PVIQ Suite™ of Performance Analytics is a powerful set of analytic and diagnostic tools allowing fleet operators to assess performance at both the system and fleet level and then drill down into the specific causes for a system’s deviation from expectations.

Key features:

  • Highly accurate and granular satellite-derived irradiance data with coverage across the continental U.S.
  • Advanced algorithms automate the identification of the root causes of system under performance
  • Spreadsheet plug-in connected directly to the Locus Energy database
