Itron enters solar market with PV measurement device
Sep 10, 2012 - US energy and water measurement and control solutions provider Itron Inc today said it had launched a solar meter for residential and commercial photovoltaic (PV) systems, marking its entry into the solar power sector.
The tool monitores and measures the power output of PV installations. It uses an Itron cellular communication module, enabling third-party solar providers to measure, collect and upload the output data of a solar system over an existing cellular network link.
Currently, the company offers Itron cellular communications, related Itron software and a hosted server option that enable the collection and provision of solar output data to the solar provider's in-house systems or web-portal systems, it added.
