โ–ซ Effortless, RealTime remote monitoring+reconfiguration of distributed plants
โ–ซย Highest accuracy in detecting emerging events & faults
โ–ซย Accurate future generation prediction+emerging fault forecasts with bleeding edge pattern recognition & noise elimination
โ–ซ Deep analysis of economic impacts of the detected changes & faults
โ–ซ Sharp improvements in operatorsโ€™ ability to control plants & deploy maintenance teams, who can in turn plan substantial savings in terms of human effort, quantity of scarce resources (like water) etc.
โ–ช AI based analytics is a key driver to keep solar electricityโ€™s levelized cost of energy below the rapidly reducing MW-hr prices set in PPA agreements
