Power Factors and Nor-Cal Controls are teaming up to provide owners, developers and EPCs with end-to-end SCADA and technical asset management solutions for solar and storage projects and reduce the risks of plant commissioning.
For the unfamiliar: Nor-Cal provides comprehensive engineering services, including full monitoring and power plant control systems as well as on-site commissioning services and training support. Their expert engineers design DAS, SCADA and MET stations, and source, configure and commission systems that seamlessly integrate with Power Factors’ cloud-based technical asset management software platform. Power Factors’ Drive platform then gives owners and operators a shared system for monitoring asset performance data, providing comprehensive visibility and analysis and improved operational performance.
“Partnering with Nor-Cal provides our customers an open architecture combined with commercial off-the-shelf hardware, reducing project costs, accelerating commissioning of assets and increasing data transparency and availability,” says Dave Roberts, senior vice president of Power Factors. “Joining Nor-Cal’s solution with the Drive platform elevates the users’ ability to interact, engage and derive value from high-quality data.”
