AlsoEnergy is dedicated to the promise of ongoing investment in renewable energy. Part of our mission as a PV monitoring provider is to promote this type of investment by making it easier for all project stakeholders to understand the dollars behind solar technology.
Both our software products translate revenue-grade generation data into financial data using customer-entered rates for energy value on each project. You can see these financial values in your software analytics, both for individual systems and for your full portfolio. Compare your sites by revenue, and use this data to plan future investments.
Of our 2 software products, PowerTrack offers the more sophisticated financial analytics (in part due to more accurate performance modeling tools). Beyond that, PowerTrack offers several optional financial analytic tools, including ability to track itemized costs related to system maintenance and downtime (part of the Workflow Feature Suite). PowerTrack also offers optional invoicing tools for PPAs that include time-of-use calculations. This feature is so sophisticated and unique that our CTO Holden Caine actually sought and won a patent for our system to integrate billing information from alternative energy sources with traditional energy sources (US Patent No. 8,214,270).
