What has the Internet of Things (IoT) got to do with solar?

A lot, apparently!

This blog post from Solar Mango on the use of IoT for solar power plants says:

IoT-based solar monitoring platforms provide excellent performance analytics through provisions for the following:

  • Calculation of performance parameters like Performance Ratio (PR) and Capacity Utilization Factor (CUF)
  • Spatiotemporal analysis of generation
  • Root cause analysis to evaluate factors that impact energy production.

Interesting indeed.
