Away from the Office? Solential’s Cloud-based Solar System Remote Monitoring App’s Got you Covered

Being away from the office can be nerve-wracking, particularly for those responsible for operating essential services like wastewater treatment plants, hospitals, municipal buildings, prisons, and farms. How do you detect an issue with your solar system if you’re not onsite?

Solential Energy has the solution: a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) remote asset management system that enables 24-7 monitoring of solar systems. Users with a smart phone, tablet, or laptop can login into the company’s Solview portal from virtually anywhere in the world to check the performance of an entire system down to individual inverters. Should there be an issue, the system issues real-time alerts to Solential and the solar system owner via email that isolates the exact fault so proper action can be taken.

That’s peace of mind!

Solview software for commercial solar installations is unique in the industry; no other solar company has a remote asset management system quite like Solview. It is currently operational on all Solential designed and built solar systems and available to utility scale and smaller commercial systems through licensing agreements.

The Solview remote asset management app is the perfect support tool when customers are:

Working from home
Impacted by pandemics
Off-site due to severe weather issue
Traveling for business
Enjoying vacation
Unable to access the physical site due to other issue

My colleague, Solential’s chief technology officer and co-founder Dave Burns, created the Solview application in 2012. It was originally intended for internal use only to verify performance of our solar projects across the United States. Because of the value delivered to our customers, we expanded the functionality to allow customer access. The remote monitoring and asset management system is integral to Solential’s preventive maintenance program and now a huge customer benefit as well.

Solview has really proven its worth these last few months when the pandemic sent people home to work. Thanks to Solview, it’s been business as usual for Solential and our solar customers. For me personally, I can be in my home office in Indianapolis and monitor every single customer’s solar system. I can detect an issue at a wastewater plant in Iowa, a farm in Michigan or hospital in Illinois, diagnose the problem, and dispatch a technician with the right supplies to fix it – without leaving home.

This is a major differentiator between Solential and other solar companies. We know exactly how every solar system with our name on it is performing 24/7 and so do our customers!

Users can monitor overall energy generation, individual panel output, whether a the system is overheating or running under accepted levels, environmental conditions, and generate reports on energy generation and consumption over days, weeks and months. Fault isolation tools pinpoint potential issues.
