O&M costs cut in half - and maximum yield
on module level with measured data
and artificial intelligence.
can O&M costs
be cut in half?
In PV O&M, every 2nd Dollar is wasted. But not with SunSniffer. We see the quality of each module, and nothing stays in the dark. Thanks to AI, plant O&M has never been easier and more cost effective.
What is the issue with inspection costs?
The costs of inspecting one module is equal or even higher than the cost of a new module.
SunSniffer offers a way of inspection at a fraction of the usual costs.
ROI be improved
at no further costs?
Current state-of-the-art monitoring stops at the inverter or maybe string level.
SunSniffer reaches down til module level – to the same price as any other solution, being at 1 cent per Watt peak.
What is so crucial about error finding – and NOT finding?
Especially unnoticed losses can be skyrocketing!
degradation alone can add up to
more than 110,000 € after only 5 years*!
Check our calculations:
* 10 MW plant, 7 €-cent feed-in tariff, 1.500 target yield/year
Module data is the key - and Artificial Intelligence
Basis is the right data. Actionable data.
Module information like voltage, current and temperature is measured highly precise, by a low-cost sensor.
precision is essential; the more precise, the better the results:
How much is the plant soiled, and where? Is degradation surpassing manufacturers threshold, can warranty be claimed? Only precise measurements can be base for the answers.
And the answers are delivered by artificial intelligence: with machine and deep learning even smallest deviations can be detected and patterns recognized. This leads to fully automated error-finding, fully automated ROI calculations and changes asset management completely:
- No time- and cost-intensive error search on-site
- No unrecognized failures and yield losses
- No hassle with warranty claims
+ Plant always running at its best possible
+ Reduced costs and enhanced yield
+ Prolonged life-time of plant
No more guessing, no more hoping: just KNOWING.
Insights never seen before - unique by SunSniffer
How much energy do you lose because of soiling?► SunSniffer tells you exactly: where on the plant you lose how much due to soiled modules and when cleaning would make sense.
How was the cleaning quality, how much dirt was left?► SunSniffer tells you exactly if the modules were cleaned thoroughly or if there is still dirt - and how much.
At what stage is my solar module degrading process now?► SunSniffer tells you exactly how much you constantly lose due to degradation and if warranty might apply. Claiming warranty has never been easier.
Did I lose power due to the last hail storm? And how much?► Damages from hail storms often are simply not visible - and not detectable with conventional methods. SunSniffer recognizes smallest voltage drops due to micro cracks which lead to reduced productivity.
Do I have broken modules I did not notice yet?► SunSniffer tells you exactly - during normal every day operation - when a module is broken. You have full control over your failures and thus you have control over your decisions.
