Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Draker today announced that it has expanded its solar PV site monitoring and SCADA control solutions to include an integrated California ISO (CAISO) validated Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG) and CAISO-compliant weather stations. These expanded Draker solutions have been certified to meet or exceed CAISO requirements for meteorological data accuracy, data processing, data communications and network security.
Draker’s RIG and weather stations can be deployed at solar PV sites as part of an overall Draker panel to grid (P2G) performance management solution, eliminating the need for a separate hardware and software system to meet CAISO Eligible Intermittent Resource Protocol (EIRP) requirements. This innovative and efficient monitoring, control and reporting system architecture reduces total system procurement and installation costs.
Concurrent with its RIG and weather station certifications, Draker has also been placed on CAISO’s list of RIG Third Party Engineering Firms. This listing indicates that Draker is fully qualified to provide the design, integration and commissioning services required to bring its RIG online and comply with CAISO EIRP communications requirements.
“With our CAISO certifications and Third Party Engineering Firm listing, Draker is uniquely positioned to provide solar PV site developers and owners an end-to-end, fully integrated P2G performance management and EIRP reporting system,” commented Draker CEO, Chach Curtis. “Our unique system architecture allows solar PV project developers and owners to comply with CAISO reporting requirements while monitoring, managing, controlling and optimizing their site performance with one cost-effective solution.”
Since 1999 Draker has led the industry with innovative monitoring, management and control solutions for commercial and utility-scale PV systems. Draker’s products and services allow PV developers, owners and operators to predict, measure, monitor, manage, optimize and control their solar assets to increase yield and maximize profitability.
