NRG Systems, maker of smart technologies for wind, solar and meteorological applications, launched a new platform for remotely monitoring the company’s measurement solutions. This NRG Cloud will improve users’ access to their fleet of wind and solar systems and feature data management services to simplify data retrieval.
NRG Systems currently offers the NRG Cloud Standard Connect Package free of charge. Membership is geared towards customers who use NRG’s SymphoniePRO Data Loggers as part of their pre- and post-construction wind and solar measurement campaigns. The Standard Connect Package supports multi-user access to sites and delivers a range of tools to easily upload, store, and download site data. NRG Systems has also introduced user-accessible APIs for programmatic interaction with data stored on NRG Cloud. NRG’s NRGPy python package can now be used to simplify interaction with the NRG Cloud APIs. As part of the NRG Cloud roadmap, NRG Systems will add support for remote configuration of the SymphoniePRO Data Logger and a selection of their other products.
Leon Hailstones, NRG’s Director of Product Management, said, “The introduction of NRG Cloud is really in keeping with NRG’s dedication to providing integrated, end-to-end solutions to our customers as our industry continues to embrace and rely on digitalization. Data – including data quality, accessibility, and management – have always been paramount to our customers’ projects. NRG Cloud makes it easier than ever for them to interface with their products so they can ultimately save time and money while remaining confident that their systems are operating as expected and delivering the data they need.”

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.
