Energy Toolbase Expands to Solar Monitoring
by Matt Moyer on Nov 16, 2023
The Energy Toolbase team is excited to announce the expansion of our latest offering, solar-only monitoring. As a leading provider of software for solar and energy storage analysis, proposal generation, and intelligent energy management system (EMS), we felt the need to expand our cutting-edge monitoring platform to provide energy professionals and asset managers with comprehensive economic and solar energy monitoring, enabling them to maximize their project’s value.
ETB Monitor is available as a standalone platform or as an integrated solution with ETB Developer solar + storage proposal analysis software. This integration allows users to seamlessly transition from the development stage to the monitoring stage, all while utilizing Energy Toolbase’s gold-standard utility rates database, electric bill calculation engine, and account management team.

By providing visualizations of the site’s expected solar generation, calculated using the system characteristics and hyper-specific satellite weather data, users can track the performance of their solar energy system’s output to an expected baseline. This comparison enables users to detect potential issues, optimize system performance, reduce operational costs, and make informed decisions about future investments.
