Fat Spaniel Helps Namaste Solar Electric Track Performance and Pinpoint

Faults

BOULDER, Colo. and SAN JOSE, Calif., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Fat Spaniel Technologies, the market leader in monitoring and reporting services for distributed renewable energy systems, today announced that the company is providing highly detailed monitoring and reporting services for the Boulder Community Foothills Hospital Cancer Center's 28-kilowatt solar electric installation. Fat Spaniel's String Monitoring Service enables installer and operator Namaste Solar Electric to cost-effectively pinpoint and resolve system failures in real-time, resulting in maximized energy output to power the Center's cancer treatment operations.

"Fat Spaniel's detailed applications such as the String Monitoring Service help us deliver consistent, high quality performance to our Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) partners and make sure that the cancer center gets the most out of its green energy investment," said Blake Jones, president of Namaste Solar Electric. "For example, it's typically been difficult to quantify how much shading affects an array, but with Fat Spaniel's service, we can drill down and see that kind of detail in real time, which enables us to maximize energy output."

The new solar system consists of 14 strings and 130 panels to help power everything from linear accelerators to lighting at the Boulder Community Foothills Hospital Cancer Center building. Within the solar array, Fat Spaniel monitors performance right down to the level of individual strings of solar modules in order to more quickly detect and pinpoint failures. The String Monitoring Service identifies module faults that could otherwise go undetected for years, and delivers immediate email or SMS alerts to support staff to resolve potential problems efficiently and optimize energy production.

"As the solar market continues to grow quickly, system installers and operators are tasked with maintaining peak performance across their expanding portfolios of sites. A leader in the Colorado solar electric market, Namaste Solar is busy proving that Fat Spaniel's online services give them a cost effective tool for delivering exceptional customer service and higher system performance as their business grows," said Chris Beekhuis, President and CTO of Fat Spaniel Technologies.

Namaste Solar Electric manages its many renewable energy sites through Fat Spaniel's Insight Manager(TM) web portal, which eases system upkeep by providing access to a rich set of services to provide efficient operations and maintenance services -- such as detecting solar inverter faults, providing alerts, recording support activities, retrieving reports and tracking assets -- for multiple sites simultaneously.
