Solar Network

An Open Source Platform for Distributed Generation

SolarNetwork is an open-source project that started as an experiment to test a method of distributed energy production that would rely on the continuous participation and cooperation of an online community.

SolarNetwork is now an expanding set of tools to collect and analyse information and to control and influence behaviour for a distributed network of nodes. A node can be installed anywhere energy is being generated and/or consumed. The name SolarNetwork implies it is for solar generated energy only, the SolarNetwork can in fact be used with any form of distributed energy.

We aim to foster a community of renewable energy enthusiasts and software developers to both 1) build out the enterprise-class infrastructure for a robust, international SolarNetwork, and 2) provide the real-world know-how and data to support a new type of distributed generation (DG) energy management organization.

Thanks to our on-line community, we now have a simply awesome technical infrastructure, allowing for the collection, aggregation, visualization and analysis of live solar insolation data and consumption data as it correlates with weather and live grid-electicity prices. This is just the start, so stay tuned.

Do you want to monitor your live solar array or your power consumption for your home or business, using reliable, enterprise-strength software? Contact us!
