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.
