How will the data produced by the SHM have value?
The SOLARA Hardware Module (SHM) provides immutable data of production, consumption, efficiency and longevity of solar panels and other microgrid assets, which can be collected and aggregated by the Edge Gateway node.
The SOLARA team understands the potential value of this data in providing unparalleled opportunity for monitoring performance (for both producers, pro-sumers and consumers) and thus optimising energy systems. (read more on this in our whitepaper).
This data can be traded on a market, which allows holders of PATs to reap a secondary benefit from solar asset ownership, in addition to the actual energy production.
