As a top monitoring provider in Europe, meteocontrol brings vast
European market experience to the North American marketplace allowing AE

internationally, to continue using the same solution in North America.
By partnering with AE Solar Energy the company now offers existing
customers hardware and software flexibility without the project delays
and installation and commissioning costs associated with traditional
in-field monitoring installations.

“Through our partnership with AE Solar Energy we provide a North
American based solution that allows us to expand our offerings for
project developers we have worked with in the past,” said Ben Compton,
chief operating officer and VP of commercial operations, meteocontrol.
“We look forward to helping our customers streamline their monitoring
process and minimize system costs.”

AE Solar Energy’s commercial site monitoring partnership provides
customers with real-time data monitoring allowing them to reduce system
downtime, increase performance and intelligently schedule operations and
maintenance (OM) services. The solution has also been factory tested to
ensure turn-key operation at installation and seamless ongoing system
management with monitoring software providers. Combined with the
company’s SiteGuard field services, commercial PV customers receive a
complete solar-plant management solution that is backed by AE’s strong
balance sheet and global scale.
