The Solar-Monitor-App was developed by Etschwerke Netz AG for our active-customers (energy-producers) for monitoring of their photovoltaic power plants as the main objective.
The App visualizes the production and earnings of your photovoltaic power plant by drawing charts on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, in kW, kWh and Euros, respectively.
At the info screen of each plant you can set the current aid in "Eurocent" and you can also attach a picture of your plant.
Historical data will be presented per day (hours), per month (days), per year (months) or as grand total (years).
The App provides the capability to compare monthly and yearly values with the average value of all photovoltaic power plants in the same geographical region. Thus it is possible to detect failures or unwanted shadow influence and allows one to reconfigure the plant to finally optimize the production and earnings.
A so called Eco-Counter shows the produced energy, the generated earnings and the CO2 savings since the start of operation of your plant.
You can use the service for free for a 60 day period after installation of the App. Within this period you can use the App for all of your photovoltaic power plants for free without limitations.
You can navigate within the App by using known touch screen gestures, e. g. change to a previous time period in a specific historical data chart with a swipe gesture.
