Energy Toolbase Releases Major Software Update

New Version Enables Users to Model NEM 2.0 Projects, Create Customized Proposals and Interact Directly with Third Party Service Providers

Energy Toolbase, an industry leading solar software platform, announced the release of a major software update today. The new version upgrades Energy Toolbase's software-as-a-service product, and is available immediately to all users. The new release has been in development for 16 months and is the company's biggest update, since debuting in 2014.


The new features and enhancements include:
• NEM 2.0: ability to precisely analyze any scenario where kilowatt-hour solar exports are valued at less than the retail rate.
• Customized proposals: ability to create fully customized and interactive proposals, choosing from a library of templates or building from scratch.
• API integrations: gives users the ability to interact directly with industry leading service providers, including K2 Clean Energy Capital, a commercial PACE financier, and UtilityAPI, an innovative utility data retrieval service.
• Streamlined interfaces and workflows: create a more intuitive user experience, allowing users to quickly qualify projects, optimize the system configuration and close more deals.

Energy Toolbase is currently being used by over 500 leading distributed energy organizations nationwide, including solar and energy storage developers, installers, consultants, energy service companies and utilities. The software specializes in utility rate analysis, modeling the economics of solar and storage projects, and creating customer facing proposals.

"We've listened closely to what our customers want" said Energy Toolbase founder and CEO John Gurski. "Calculating the avoided cost of solar and energy storage projects is becoming more complex, as rate designs and Net Energy Metering frameworks continue to evolve. This new release allows users to run any type of layered analysis, and then present their data however they see fit."

Energy Toolbase will be demoing the new version of their platform at the Solar Power International conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 13-16, 2016 at booth number 122.

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.
