A new software monitoring platform from Energy Toolbase provides real-time insights into the performance and savings of solar plus energy storage systems (ESS) operating in the field. ETB Monitor was designed to give project developers and asset owners complete transparency into their operational projects.
The newly launched version of ETB Monitor boasts several features and user interfaces, such as an interactive chart tool that displays a site’s interval data, including site demand, solar photovoltaic generation, ESS dispatch and state of charge. The utility bill savings module provides a detailed breakdown of solar and storage savings over each billing cycle. Additionally, users can view event site logs and configure customized alerts and notifications for different types of events. Lastly, permissioned users can schedule manual override events through ETB Monitor, to charge or discharge the ESS over a specified time period.
Energy Toolbase’s Model, Control, Monitor product lineup provides a cohesive suite of software tools for project developers to deploy ESS projects more efficiently. An ETB Monitor license comes standard when a customer deploys Energy Toolbase’s Acumen EMS controls software in the field.
