By Kathie Zipp Locus Energy announced the release of a game-changing loss-estimation feature on the SolarNOC™ Platform, the Virtual Irradiance (VI) Performance Waterfall.
The Performance Waterfall is a tool that analyzes the power generation data from a solar meter to determine whether the panel(s) and inverter(s) behind the meter are working as expected. For systems that are not performing to expectations, it helps determine why discrepancies arise between measured and modeled performance of a system.
Leveraging VI as the source of irradiance data, the Performance Waterfall analyzes the differences between the modeled and measured data series to estimate underperformance due to clipping, snow cover, partial
