The first SolarNOC components to be released will be a role-based business intelligence dashboard and an advanced system grouping and filtering tool. The SolarNOC dashboard is a highly customizable web interface for the display of key performance indicators and PV system diagnostic data. Users log into the application and immediately see the most relevant system information and performance metrics for their role within an organization. The grouping and filtering tool allows users to create and manage dynamic groups of projects, installations and system components.
Together, these components provide solar asset managers with an unprecedented amount of control over how performance data is aggregated and visualized. Project data within the SolarNOC can be segmented by region, size, OEM, install date, installer, finance partner and many other criteria. Users select and save filters to define groups of installations and then view only the most pertinent performance data within their personalized dashboards.
"We work with hundreds of solar installation and finance companies, many of which have expressed a need for a more powerful tool to manage solar assets," said Dan Loflin, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Locus Energy. "These organizations are accustomed to highly configurable CRM and Business Intelligence applications that deliver the information, tools and KPI's for multiple user groups. We believe we can offer the same capabilities through a comprehensive platform tailored for the PV industry."
The SolarNOC will go live in the fourth quarter of 2012 and be offered as an add-on for all users of Locus Energy's industry-leading SolarOS monitoring platform. Please visit www.locusenergy.com for more information or visit us at booth #3770 at SPI '12 for a demonstration.
