Radix IoT and Renewable Energy Integration Group (REIG) have joined forces in launching REvolution IoT. The new DAS/SCADA monitoring platform is a tailored version of Radix IoT’s Mango platform included in REnergyWare, REIG’s new division providing packaged hardware assemblies. The REvolution IoT software platform and RESource digital O&M services will reduce operational costs, maximize return on investment, and improve efficiencies for mid-to-large-scale solar PV industry customers.
“In partnership with Radix IoT, our REnergyWare division will provide monitoring and management software and digital O&M services to 1 MW to 20+MW mid-scale utility solar PV installations,” said Keith Davis, president and CEO of REIG. “Adding the REvolution IoT software monitoring platform and services to our legacy offerings, we are well-positioned to be at the forefront of national, and in the future, global, IoT solutions providers to solar PV markets.”
As solar projects expand in size and complexity, REnergyWare’s turnkey monitoring portal for utility scale solar installations will combine the Radix IoT platform and software development expertise with REIG’s PV industry hardware expertise. REnergyWare meets the PV industry’s critical need for a comprehensive software platform for asset management, production insights, customized reporting and alerting, coupled with a digital operations and maintenance service.
“With REvolution IoT, REIG customers will now reap the benefits from real-time and historical analytics provided by the Radix IoT Platform, allowing unparalleled monitoring and management of solar installations on scale,” said Joel Haggar, chief strategy officer of Radix IoT. “With REIG’s expertise and reputation in the solar industry and customer reach, the partnership enables up to the minute management of installations to ensure uptime and allow for continuous operational criteria to be met on scale. “
RESource Digital O&M will provide the remote monitoring and management of the solar assets and networked systems from REIG’s Charlotte, NC operations center. In the event of problems or alarms, REvolution IoT will allow REnergyWare engineers to remotely diagnose and troubleshoot the problem before dispatching field technicians to the site. With IoT technologies now becoming commonplace to control operational expense and service costs remotely in many industries, the partnership between Radix IoT and REIG exemplifies the combined power of a recognized and trusted IoT Platform from Radix IoT (commonly used in power distribution, telecommunications, and smart building infrastructure), and that of REIG, a leader in utility scale solar PV.
