“The monitoring system is a great way to see how much electricity our solar panels produce and enables us to optimize our energy savings.” — a satisfied SunPower customer
SunPower PV arrays can be installed with consumer monitoring. This means you can track the performance of your solar system on a daily basis. Energy monitoring also allows you to stay on top of how much electricity you use every day versus how much you create during the sunlight hours.
The majority of our PV systems installed in Sacramento and the Bay Area come with online monitoring, so homeowners see in real time how much electricity they produce. The monitoring software is viewable on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. This easy-to-use interface examines the energy your solar system produces and compares the output over hours, days, months and even years!
The advantage to a monitoring system is that it gives you the assurance that you are getting what you paid for. SunPower solar panels are guaranteed to produce electricity at a certain level over a 25-year lifespan. If your system is failing to meet expectations, and inclement weather is not involved, the monitoring system can cue you in that either simple maintenance is required (such as cleaning the surface of the solar modules), or that a panel needs to be replaced as a part of your homeowner guarantee.
