PPE count on Lufft weather sensors for PV Monitoring

Pacific Power Engineers, Inc. (PPE) was formed by experienced engineers from different branches and offers a range of services e.g. in project management. Together with Lufft USA we provide photovoltaic monitoring solutions.

For us, the values integrity and transparency are core values, and we have found these attributes in Lufft USA Inc. and their products in working with them over the years. The value, performance, and ease of setup and installation makes choosing their products for use on our projects a no-brainer.


PPE standardized on Lufft's weather sensors because of their seamless integration with our remote intelligent gateway (RIG) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) implementations, and the transparency that comes with their open communication protocols. A Lufft all-in-one weather station, with the addition of one or two sensors, meets all CAISO requirements for most solar installations; when Lufft's equipment is used with PPE's HMI for site monitoring and control, it allows our customers to view and trend site data in real-time, as well as archive all relevant data points for future analysis of component and system performance.

The number of metrics measured by the Lufft's weather stations in combination with the high accuracy of the sensors gives our customers the ability to forecast short-term and long-term generation capabilities of their site with a high degree of confidence so as to optimize scheduling and maximize their return on investment.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
