Why is Online Monitoring Important?


Okay, online monitoring is a term, used a lot in our industry today and you may have heard or may hear it referred to as wifi monitoring.

So, all systems need to be online and monitored but let me talk you through our approach to monitoring.

Firstly, online monitoring is about making sure you can see what’s going on with the solar power system and how much power it’s generating and what it’s doing, what its status is and importantly, you need to have that because the last thing you want to do is find out your system’s not working when your power bill arrives in three months’ time, but that’s the first step.

The second step is in relation to how your system is actually performing in relation to our expectations. Because when we sell you a system, we tell you how much power we expect your system to generate day on day, month on month, year on year. So it’s important we benchmark that data and understand what’s going on.

So, our system will give you detail around and graph that detail for you, so you can see how much power your system’s generating.

Then it comes to the exciting stuff and that’s when us data junkies get excited because we’re going to give you data and the access to data, so you can start to profile what your system’s doing when you generate power and how you can use it, because we all want to get the best out of self-consumption.

So whether it’s just solar power or you’re putting in solar power and storage, self-consumption is really important and data is really powerful. So we’re going to help you understand what your system does.

So have a talk to us, make sure you understand what’s the right solution to fit your needs, and you get what you need to get the best out of your solar power system.
