Neighborhood Power Corporation Selects SeeControl to Bring the Internet of Things to Solar Energy Management

Leading innovator in solar industry deploys 360-degree suite of cloud-based, real-time customer management solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14, 2014 -- SeeControl today announced that Neighborhood Power Corporation (NPC), Hawaii's solar company, has selected SeeControl as the Internet of Things (IoT) platform to bring a suite of innovative high-touch operational and market-facing services to thousands of NPC customers across the islands.

NPC's existing service management processes presented an opportunity for enhanced efficiencies and customer intimacy. With SeeControl, NPC launched enhanced "big data" scale infrastructure for information capture from machine-to-machine (M2M) gateways and sensors at consumer homes. This infrastructure coupled with SeeControl's no coding toolset enabled rapid solution development for applications that have dramatically improved billing, remote diagnostics and field service. Most importantly for NPC customers, the new solar management suite delivers industry-leading online and mobile interfaces that allow NPC customers to take full charge of their energy generation and consumption.

"We chose the SeeControl platform because it allows us to get new services in front of our customers faster than any of the competing approaches we evaluated. And because it's a no coding platform, we don't have to hire programmers or expand our IT management staff," said Stephen Gates, CEO of Neighborhood Power Corporation.

Bryan Kester, CEO of SeeControl stated, "We are proud to partner with a world-class industry innovator such as NPC. Virtually overnight, NPC has created a true cloud-driven company that senses and responds to customer needs with cloud IoT, CRM, billing and finance---fused via APIs to create a true 21st century enterprise."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
