Locus Energy was cited in a joint GTM Research and SoliChamba Consulting research report titled "Global PV Monitoring: Technologies, Markets and Leading Players, 2014-2018." The report, which provides comprehensive research on the solar PV monitoring market, also identified Locus Energy as the fastest-growing independent provider in the U.S. residential PV monitoring market.
In 2013, Locus Energy more than doubled its fleet size, thus maintaining the largest fleet among independent service providers in the U.S. residential segment, according to the report. This year, Locus Energy has already installed an additional 5,000 systems, bringing its current fleet size to 35,000. This capacity gives Locus Energy the ability to manage one of the largest performance data sets in the U.S. solar industry. The company processes vast amounts of real-time and historical data, pulling more than 30 million data points from its systems daily, with over 15 billion data points collected to date.
"The report confirms our continued status as the nation's top independent solar monitoring provider based on the number of sites under management," said Michael Herzig, Locus Energy CEO. "This recognition reflects the market's understanding of the value our hardware and software solutions bring to the solar industry. We are able to provide fleet and portfolio managers with smarter data and analytics that allow them to drive efficiencies and lower O&M costs."
