The Itron solar monitoring solution includes the company’s solar meter embedded with cellular communications and Itron managed services for managing and monitoring of solar power generation. Itron reports that its solution “provides a way to measure and manage solar production data at residences that are often distributed across a wide geographic area. With easy plug-and-play setup and streamlined activation, the solution will reduce installation time for CPF’s channel partners, improve the data collection process and ultimately lower costs while improving operational efficiency for the entire system.”
Itron’s revenue-grade solar meters monitor the production of residential and commercial solar systems.
Steve Olszewski, CPF senior vice president of operations, says, “The efficiency and simplicity of Itron’s solar monitoring solution makes it a preferred technology for CPF. The solution helps our customers reduce installation times and improve monitoring accuracy. We are pleased to have a solution that enables us to easily secure production data over an existing cellular network.”
