Locus Energy Surpasses 50,000 Solar PV Systems Under Management

published: 2014-12-12 14:30

Locus Energy, a solar monitoring and data analytics platform provider for the solar PV market, announced that the number of systems under Locus management has surpassed 50,000 installations and is quickly approaching 1GW in capacity, reflecting the company's position with developers, owners and operators of residential, commercial and utility-scale solar PV fleets.

Locus Energy, based in Hoboken, N.J., now manages one of the nation's largest solar performance data sets, processing over 15 million data points daily for a cumulative total of more than 30 billion data points. Its DAS hardware and fleet management software are now being used at more than 50,000 sites by more than 500 customers including asset managers, EPC contractors, project developers and O&M providers.

The 50,000 site milestone is a result of 5 consecutive years of over 100% growth, led by customer demand for its SolarNOC (Network Operations Center) enterprise-grade software, which allows system owners, operators and investors to more easily and cost-effectively collect, monitor and analyze real-time performance data from large fleets of solar assets, as well as its flexible and innovative data acquisition systems (DAS) solutions.

In addition to DAS hardware and SolarNOC fleet management software, Locus now offers a suite of analytics tools called PVIQ that provides real-time intelligence on solar performance, allowing owners and operators to easily identify which systems are not performing up to expectations and the reasons behind that underperformance.

"Locus' strong growth is a testament to our focus on the solar market, and meeting its evolving needs in terms of distributed fleet management at scale," said Michael Herzig, CEO at Locus Energy. "As the rate of solar adoption has grown, our products have become increasingly important to fleet owners and managers in their mission to increase efficiency and reduce O&M costs."
