Behind-the-meter PV generation insights to inform gross load calculations and distribution planning

SolarAnywhere® FleetView® models production of distributed PV fleets to cost-effectively support utility load-balancing requirements

Electric utilities are facing the challenge of maintaining grid safety and reliability amidst accelerated adoption of behind-the-meter (BTM) solar PV systems.

SolarAnywhere® FleetView®, a web-based solar data service, combines PV system specifications and best-in-class SolarAnywhere® irradiance data to create time-series simulations of historical, real-time and forecasted energy production from PV systems

SolarAnywhere Fleetview is different

FleetView provides a reliable and affordable alternative to production metering infrastructure without compromising on accuracy.

Accurately account for the impact of distributed PV production on networks with high PV penetration.

Empower businesses and consumers to electrify their buildings
Better inform capacity planning

Generate site-specific, per-system PV production profiles or aggregate to the feeder or substation levels.

Empower businesses and consumers to electrify their buildings
Make more cost-effective operational decisions

Reliably estimate current, day-ahead or week-ahead energy supply from distributed PV.

Empower businesses and consumers to electrify their buildings
Integrate an enterprise-class solar API

Integrate historic, real-time or forecasted PV production data into existing software platforms using a secure, easy-to-use API

What makes FleetView different?

  • Access trusted and vetted SolarAnywhere Data.
  • Scale to the size of your solar fleet, from a single feeder to the entire balancing area.
  • Integrate data easily into your existing processes via the SolarAnywhere API or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).
  • Link with PV system specifications stored in PowerClerk or import specification information from other standardized files.

Case Study

Exelon Companies Choose FleetView

FleetView calculates behind-the-meter PV generation to inform gross load calculations and distribution planning.

Three Exelon companies (Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco), experienced accelerated growth of residential solar installations in their service territories. In order to provide safe and reliable service while supporting solar adoption, the company needed the ability to accurately and cost-effectively estimate customer gross load that is obscured by behind-the-meter PV systems

“FleetView provides us with accurate and site-specific solar production simulations of historical and real-time production for every PV system in our territory. This helps us unmask gross load, plan for the future and bolster continued reliability of the distribution system.”
