SunPower Corp. has added a new solar energy monitoring application for Android-powered smartphones to its monitoring portfolio. The SunPower Monitoring System, which includes mobile device applications and a Web-based interface, allows homeowners to track the energy performance of their residential solar system alongside their home's energy usage, the company explains.
With the new Android application, homeowners follow their system's performance, home energy usage and trends, as well as view the system's history and share information with friends and family in real time.
The application can be downloaded immediately from Android Market at no charge and is available to new and existing customers of SunPower solar systems with monitoring capabilities. The SunPower Monitoring System is available through the SunPower dealer network for homeowners purchasing a new solar rooftop system.
