Locus Energy Offers Solar Monitoring Hardware Flexibility With New “Bring Your Own Logger” Service

Helps Customers Reduce Costs, Streamline Workflows, Minimize Risk, and Increase Return on Investment

Today, Locus Energy announced new, advanced hardware flexibility, with an enhanced capability to collect data from on-site aggregators and third-party equipment directly. This capability will enable customers to streamline and optimize their hardware procurement costs and provide them with versatile OEM and third party support.

This data architecture directly benefits anyone looking to consolidate and standardize data from a variety of system and equipment types, all while reducing costs. Locus can now accept data directly from existing OEM loggers and other industry-standard gateways, streamlining data acquisition for developers, owners, and operators, with minimal risk or downtime.
"This is game-changing for customers who need to retrofit sites with a new monitoring solution," Michael Herzig, CEO of Locus Energy said. "With this new integration, solar asset stakeholders with existing or planned projects can adopt premium software solutions without the added cost of new hardware systems."
With the ability to ingest data from many different endpoints, project stakeholders can now take advantage of Locus' multitude of tools and applications. This includes SolarNOC™, Locus' cloud-based fleet management platform, which provides an unprecedented level of control over how system data is aggregated, displayed, and analyzed. With the migration of historical data from the system, Locus analysts will be able to uncover performance issues that went unnoticed under previous providers.
Additionally, by leveraging Locus Energy's advanced analytics tools, customers will gain access to real-time intelligence on performance, allowing all stakeholders to easily identify which systems are not meeting performance expectations, and to diagnose the reasons for the underperformance.
"Locus has always been driven by unparalleled customer service," Herzig continued. "We see this Bring Your Own Logger innovation as an opportunity to leverage our fantastic customer service team and our flexible data acquisition system with the goal of helping our customers reduce their costs, streamline workflows, minimize risk, and increase their ROI."
