Locus Energy is one of the largest independent PV monitoring companies in the world, and is a global leader in solar data analytics. As India is one of the largest and most quickly developing solar markets, Locus is keenly interested in the opportunity it presents.

Genscape acquired Locus Energy, a solar monitoring company, to help it quickly get its arms around the global trade in solar power. Using remote sensing technology similar to that for traditional power plants, Locus has deployed more than 150,000 sensors worldwide, resulting in more than 80 billion data points collected, with most of that coming from the U.S.
The information can come from sensors embedded in the panels themselves, or through sensors monitoring the output on the lines. Even with but 13.5 percent of U.S. solar capacity covered through Locus, the information generated is invaluable to larger utilities, capital providers, equipment manufacturers and asset managers.

Locus Energy carries out performance monitoring and data analytics services for solar PV energy producers across the residential, commercial, industrial, and utility sectors. According to a Feb. 28 press release, the company’s solar monitoring fleet has surpassed 5.0 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity globally, 4.8-GWs of which is located in the U.S.
On June 1, Locus announced the addition of the Virtual Irradiance (VI) Performance Waterfall – a “game-changing” loss-estimation feature – to its SolarNOC™ Platform. The new product analyzes power generation data direct from a solar meter to determine whether PV panels and inverters installed “behind the meter” on utility customer sites are working as expected. When they aren’t, the application determines probable sources of the discrepancies and presents ways of resolving them.

Locus Energy, a solar monitoring and data analytics solutions provider, has added an automated loss-estimation feature to its SolarNOC platform.
Called the Virtual Irradiance (VI) Performance Waterfall, the new tool analyzes the power generation data from a solar meter to determine whether the panels and inverters behind the meter are working as expected. For systems that are not performing to expectations, the feature helps determine why discrepancies arise between measured and modeled performance of a system.

Today, Locus Energy announced the release of a game-changing loss-estimation feature on the SolarNOC™ Platform, the Virtual Irradiance (VI) Performance Waterfall.
The Performance Waterfall is a tool that analyzes the power generation data from a solar meter to determine whether the panel(s) and inverter(s) behind the meter are working as expected. For systems that are not performing to expectations, it helps determine why discrepancies arise between measured and modeled performance of a system.

Locus Energy announced the release of a game-changing loss-estimation feature on the SolarNOC™ Platform, the Virtual Irradiance (VI) Performance Waterfall.
Leveraging VI as the source of irradiance data, the Performance Waterfall analyzes the differences between the modeled and measured data series to estimate underperformance due to clipping, snow cover, partial system downtime, soiling, shading, and degradation.
