SunTrak App Shows You Visual Savings of Solar
You already know that solar panels can lower your energy usage and support the environment, but GreenRay Solar wants to help you visualize those savings.
Along with web design agency Bartlett Interactive, GreenRay created an online dashboard application that allows consumers to see exactly how much energy their system is currently producing and, in turn, environmental benefits such as number of trees planted and cars taken off the road.
Using a variety of meansstatistics, charts, graphs, and iconsthe site shows a breakdown of energy creation by the day, week, month, and entire lifetime of your solar panel installation. The information is specific to each array, taking into account different variables like amount of sunlight available on any given day.
Its an added product feature that consumers love, but GreenRay Solar is certainly reaping the benefits as well. Harry Bartlett from Bartlett Interactive explains, Theres a great demand by consumers to see how much energy they are producing, as well as any information that quantifies an environmental impact or benefit. The GreenRay dashboard is a rich source of data that consumers can easily understand and appreciate.
Installers are able to use the tool as well by periodically checking on the panels theyve installed and ensuring that they perform optimally. Engineers at GreenRay can also use the data collected from the program to improve their products and placement of solar arrays.
Other solar companies may be a bit behind on the curve, but it seems undeniable that they will soon be following suit with programs like GreenRays SunTrak. In turn, homeowners might just be more invested in getting a solar panel installation of their own.
