Developing A Combined Monitoring Site for Inovateus Solar

Student: Jenny Lardner, 2015-2016

Sponsor: Inovateus Solar, South Bend, IN

Inovateus Solar uses multiple solar panel monitoring systems in order to monitor their clients’ solar panel energy statistics. The important variables are irradiance and kilowatt/kilowatt-hours. These metrics are manually checked from the multiple sites daily by staff at Inovateus headquarters. In instances when a solar panel has a change in energy output, the monitoring systems show drops/rises in corresponding metrics. The aim of this project is to combine the multiple systems currently in use by Inovateus, onto one user friendly site/software platform so that all systems' output are merged into a single monitoring system for solar panels.
