Problems:

  • Uneven terrain/string imbalance
  • Inadequate monitoring information
  • Multiple maintenance issues
  • Broken panels not replaceable due to electrical incompatibility

Solution:

  • BOOST Platform corrects string imbalance
  • Replace damaged panels, use BOOST Platform to overcome incompatibility
  • Provide high resolution monitoring and machine learning diagnostics

Impact:

  • 7% energy production improvement through string imbalance correction
  • 3-5% energy production improvement through replacing broken panels
  • 13% revenue improvement through situational awareness provided by monitoring
  • 32% internal rate of return (IRR) on string imbalance correction alone
