New Home Green Materials and Learning Center is pleased to partner with DECK Monitoring to provide our clients with one of the most robust and flexible solar monitoring systems in the market.
“DECK Monitoring offers a superior solar monitoring solution made for solar integrators by solar integrators,” said Jason Hamilton, general manager of New Home’s Renewable Energy Division. “We are proud to offer DECK Monitoring to our customers.”
DECK was founded in 2008 by four visionary solar entrepreneurs who relied on their own 40+ years of solar experience and built the DECK Monitoring solution to directly address the needs of solar integrators, developers, and end users.
The DECK Monitoring system is based on two core packages, residential and commercial, each sufficient for core generation monitoring for all solar systems. The core package includes all necessary hardware and five years of DECK Monitoring software with a public dashboard and a private integrator administrative panel. String monitoring, sub array monitoring, inverter level monitoring, wireless mesh networks, weather stations and lobby displays are also available as additional options.
“DECK Monitoring is basically plug and play,” Hamilton said. ‘Hardware arrives pre-configured to the integrator for installation. As soon as it’s connected they will begin communicating with the DECK servers and the monitoring web site will be accessible. It’s an elegantly simple solution.”
Hamilton also noted that DECK Monitoring offers solar integrators and developers powerful tools to manage multiple sites (regardless of the brand of inverter being used on each system) in one panel, to trigger alarms based on performance or system health, and to keep a history of system design and maintenance.
New Home Green Materials and Learning Center is a game-changing green building materials distribution and retail chain. Whether a retrofit, remodel, or new structure, New Home’s Contractor Services can make implementing green construction and installation of green products easy by providing general contracting, design, engineering and building design services in one place.
“We are very pleased to join the New Home Green Materials family of products,” noted Will Shortt, CEO of DECK Monitoring. “Solar monitoring is the critical final piece in the visualization and maintenance of solar installations. Now integrators can create a turnkey solar installation with the solutions and service they can find at New Home Green Materials.”
