With every PV system over 30 kW, we recommend a data acquisition system to report on system performance and alert on errors and anomalies. In fact, all systems that receive CSI PBI payments are required to have a qualifying performance monitoring system. These systems can track and report:
- PV production
- Local building/site demand
- Weather (e.g., solar irradiance, air temperature, solar module temperature, wind speed)
- Inverter diagnostic codes
- String-level monitoring
Below is the performance monitoring solution we have in place for Honig Vineyard & Winery. This same presentation is also on display in Honig’s tasting room at the winery in Rutherford, CA.
Sunlight Electric can configure and customize this presentation to suit the needs of a retail environment or to fit the design treatment of any web site.
