Locus Energy, a performance monitoring and data analytics platform provider for the solar PV market in the residential, commercial, industrial and utility sectors, says its solar monitoring fleet has surpassed 5 GW of solar capacity globally. The majority of that total, more than 4.8 GW monitored capacity, is in the U.S.
Since the beginning of 2016, Locus says it has added more than 3 GW of monitored solar capacity, an increase of 150%. This milestone reflects continued record growth in solar, as well as a growing recognition of the role that Locus’ asset monitoring and analytics services play in achieving long-term investment return, according to the company.
“The solar market is changing and maturing very quickly, which means that operating a PV system efficiently is only going to become more critical over time,” says Michael Herzig, CEO of Locus Energy. “Locus’ long-term commitment to the entire lifecycle of PV projects means that we are uniquely positioned to enable our partners to operate and optimize their PV assets for their entire lifespans. As the solar industry continues to grow and mature, we are looking forward to continuing to help shape its adoption of best-in-class asset monitoring and analytics solutions.”
