Selecting an Energy Portal
Cachelan provides internet monitor and control portals for management of renewable energy using smart grid technology. A solar PV system is a big investment that only creates revenue when it is generating electricity. When problems occur, the site owner needs to be alerted and have the necessary analysis tools for troubleshooting to prevent loss of revenue. A comprehensive energy portal is a valuable tool that will pay for itself from initial commissioning to lifetime maintenance. It should be evaluated and selected with the same care that goes into other systems components.

Get an alarm message if problems occur. Remotely view live inverter measurements to speed up troubleshooting.

Check your carbon footprint reduction and learn about energy equivalents. Calculate expected ROI with the payback calculator. Detect bad panels with SmartStrings™. Evaluate expected performance to actual under varying weather conditions with WeatherTrak™. Read about these and other features then visit live sites to see how they will work on your site when installed. Ask your project developer or installer to include SolarVu® on your solar PV projects.
