At Route 66 Solar, we provide post-installation support through solar energy monitoring. This real-time tracking allows you to closely follow your photovoltaic (PV) system’s solar energy output and, by extension, utility bill savings and carbon offsets.
Every PV installation we install comes with a dedicated inverter that converts the DC power generated by your solar panels into the AC power on which most of your home’s appliances run. This inverter also measures (in real-time) important details such as:
It also carefully tracks how much solar power you’re feeding into the utility grid, which is a prerequisite for participating in state-level net metering programs.
Although every solar monitoring system is slightly different, most solutions come with:
Most platforms come with interactive dashboards complete with daily, annual and lifetime stats. These allow you to compare and contrast your PV system’s performance over time.
The high-quality, American-made PV panels we install normally come with 25 years of warranty protection. Over the next several decades, however, any number of issues might arise that could negatively impact your system’s performance, including:
In the absence of real-time solar monitoring, you’d have no way of knowing whether your PV system is operating at peak performance until you receive your next utility bill. (This is assuming that you carefully inspect each electricity statement as it arrives.)
Solar monitoring eliminates these steps since you can check your production and consumption numbers at any time. Some monitoring solutions even send push notifications if your solar installation’s performance falls below a certain threshold.
If the goal is to maximize the financial and environmental dividends that your PV system generates, solar monitoring is absolutely essential. It is the simplest and cheapest way to safeguard your savings and extract the most value from your clean energy investment. Without monitoring, it becomes much harder to detect potential problems and intervene accordingly.
PV system monitoring represents only the final component in our comprehensive installation services. At Route 66 Solar, we also provide all the design, engineering and financing options required to bring your PV installation online. We also handle 100% of the paperwork entirely on your behalf, including municipal permits, grid connection approvals and attractive solar incentives.
We can even help you apply for net metering, which allows you to sell unused solar power back to your utility provider (in exchange for credits). This incentive can help shorten the payback period of your clean energy investment dramatically.
