Solytic takes over solar monitoring portal Suntrol from Solarworld
Solar monitoring software provider Solytic will take over and operate Suntrol Portal by bankrupt solar panel producer Solarworld from March 8th 2019 onwards. For its 27,500 globally registered users, the portal will still be available free of charge. This way Solytic can ensure the continuous service of Suntrol as a first step. But the Berlin solar monitoring provider, whose financial investor is the energy provider Vattenfall, also plans to further develop their new asset in the future.
Suntrol monitors current solar performance and production
After the second bankruptcy of Solarworld, Suntrol was already running on Solytic’s servers since 2017 to secure all data. Currently, the portal monitors all important performance and production data of over 23,000 solar installations with a total capacity of almost 330 MWp.
Beside the usual information about the production history, users see how much CO2 they saved and informs them about their consumption.
Solarworld appreciates customer friendly solution for Suntrol
Solytic already started a project with Solarworld in 2017. The target was to modernize the portal and develop new features for its users. The bankruptcy of Solarworld stopped this project. After the takeover Solytic will continue to fulfil the initial plan.
“We are very happy that Solytic will realize our joint plans for a user friendly future for the portal and that it will thereby continue to be a free of charge portal for our customers”, explains Markus Hund, Director Product & Quality at Solarworld. Thanks to modern analytics and automation features, Solytic is leading the development of smart monitoring systems for solar assets. “Our customers benefit from an automated monitoring and a smart analytics, so they can substantially optimize the operation and maintenance of their solar assets”, says Solytic CEO Johannes Burgard.
Solytic was founded in 2017 in Berlin. With a company of 30 people, Solytic develops smart software solutions for the technical management of solar assets. Its cost effective solution automatically communicates production relevant issues directly to the operators via a ticketing system to maximize the output of solar systems. Because of this higher degrees of automation, Solytic reduces the costs of its customers and improves the margins of their assets. Also managing multiple assets is becoming more efficient with the software, because of smart portfolio views and reports. The manufacturer-independent portal offers various user interfaces, can be connected to any solar installation and is also available as a white label solution.
