Now, with the power of Solar-Log, if you need performance information about your solar PV plant, just ask for it. Solar Data System announced that Solar-Log WEB Enerest will allow PV plant owners to ask Alexa about their solar PV plant status.

Plant owners can ask questions like, “Alexa, how is my plant?” or “Alexa, how much money have I earned with my plant?” Alexa will even know the answer to questions like, “when is the best time to vacuum?”. The answer will not be based on how dirty the floor is, but rather on the current amount of available solar power and the expected energy production surplus over the next two days. With this new Solar-Log WEB Enerest function, plant monitoring becomes simpler and more intuitive for plant owners.

Solar-Log Skill will be available in Amazon’s Alexa Skills store beginning June 2018 in both English and German.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
