AlsoEnergy Retains #1 Ranking Among Monitoring ISVs in US C&I Markets

GTM Research is preparing to release the Global PV Monitoring report for years 2017-2022. With over 6GW of monitored PV production at more than 20,000 sites worldwide, AlsoEnergy has retained its ranking as the number one Independent Software Vendor (ISV) for solar monitoring in the U.S. C&I markets. This is the fourth straight year that AlsoEnergy has led the US commercial market segment in the annual GreenTech Media report.

The Global PV Monitoring 2017-2022 report is authored by Cedric Brehaut, Executive Consultant and founder of SoliChamba Consulting. “AlsoEnergy continues to demonstrate leadership in the U.S. C&I market for PV monitoring software, earning the number one ranking among independent software vendors for the fourth year running in the commercial segment and for the third year running in the industrial segment. This is a considerable achievement in a competitive market.”

AlsoEnergy CEO Robert Schaefer attributes the company’s market performance to continued investment in product development, service, and support. “AlsoEnergy is committed to staying on the cutting edge of the rapidly growing solar industry. We are investing in technology and customer service to widen the gap between us and our competitors. These investments are at work every day, helping our customers achieve greater up time with lower O&M costs.”

Recent examples of these investments include expanded weekend support services, as AlsoEnergy now offers Seven Day Support.  Investments in new products and services include PowerTrack Web, an HTML-based browser interface; PowerTrack Mobile applications for iOS and Android platforms; the Rule Tool feature for automated system validation testing; and Advanced Site Configuration services for the most thorough site testing and validation processes. The company also continued to invest in new solutions for the utility-scale market, including power plant control solutions and SCADA server systems that are optimized for solar assets.

AlsoEnergy customers, such as CalCom Solar, have achieved winning results using AlsoEnergy’s industry leading solutions.  CalCom Solar is ranked by Solar Power World in the overall top 25 contractors for the commercial solar marketplace, and was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the top 25 fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. for the last two years.

“By leveraging AlsoEnergy’s PowerTrack solution, CalCom has been able to remotely operate systems in order to provide greater reliability; consequently we get higher uptime and production and lower O&M costs by avoiding truck rolls,” said Jason Smith, President and COO of CalCom Solar. “This customizable platform has provided CalCom the ability to provide a higher standard and quality of services to our customers at a competitive price point.”
