TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BrainGrid Corporation is pleased to announce the successful completion of its one year pilot program, field proving the capabilities of its revolutionary Sentroller solar energy monitoring technology.
Committed to energy reform and in response to market demand, in 2012 the progressive technology company developed the Sentroller before testing it in the field at five remote, 10kW residential solar power generation plants (“Micro-FITs”) spread out over a 5km radius within the township of Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada.
Upon completion of the pilot program, despite harsh conditions the Sentroller successfully and uninterruptedly transmitted energy production and other vital system data collected from the remote solar energy plants for one full year, without falter.
The Company also reports that since the “to field pilot program” was launched in August, 2014, several other Sentroller devises across the Brampton/Mississauga regions have been installed on similar power applications, of which have also been operating seamlessly.
BrainGrid CEO and founder Michael Kadonoff comments “We’re pleased to have reached this one year milestone which proves our technical and business convictions about our end-to-end solution... We’re driving the monitoring costs down and ease of deployment up such that a system or fund size is irrelevant when considering real-time monitoring.” Kadonoff continues “When offering clients ten times the features to systems that were once deemed unmonitorable, while reducing other customer’s current conventional monitoring costs by up to 90%, we are delivering true energy reform to the solar sector.”
The Sentroller is a long range, low power, communications gateway that’s coupled to BrainGrid’s private wireless network and software platform. It’s specifically designed to collect and deliver critical and relevant system metrics in real-time to asset owners and operators. Armed with derived insights, relevant alarms and actionable facts in addition to raw data, asset and project stakeholders can affect reduced maintenance costs, better yields or efficiency while bolstering ROI.
The Sentroller’s first major application enables residential solar energy systems providers the ability to monitor all of their distributed generation power systems, no matter what their size is and/or where they are located. Simply put, the revolutionary technology delivers the most reliable, cost effective and fully featured means to collect and relay wireless data.
The monitoring platform, including independent internet gateway and reporting software, is available for as low as $4.00 (CDN) per month, per residential system.
