Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, PowerDash provides web-based software tools for the management and monitoring of alternative energy installations. Their software collects data in real time from energy systems such as solar photovoltaic inverters and components and wind power meters and inverters. This energy data is then processed through PowerDash’s secure web services, which provide their customers with visualization, analysis, and independent verification of their energy performance. These services enable their customers to remotely monitor their alternative energy performance, compare modeled/expected performance with actual generation, be alerted to lapses or underperformance in energy production that may indicate faults in the system, and discover optimizations if similar systems are achieving better energy performance. PowerDash is also an independent, third-party verifier for renewable energy production. They help their customers to simplify the reporting of Renewable Energy Credit (REC) and Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) generation, secure rebates offered by utilities and government agencies, and ensure compliance with production tracking requirements.
