Selecting an Energy Portal
Cachelan provides internet monitor and control portals for management of renewable energy using smart grid technology. A solar PV system is a big investment that only creates revenue when it is generating electricity. When problems occur, the site owner needs to be alerted and have the necessary analysis tools for troubleshooting to prevent loss of revenue. A comprehensive energy portal is a valuable tool that will pay for itself from initial commissioning to lifetime maintenance. It should be evaluated and selected with the same care that goes into other systems components.
