Proinso looks to increase profitability of PV assets with distinctive monitoring offer in India


Proinso, a global leader in the solar energy market, has partnered with Inspire Clean Energy (ICE) to offer its project clients one year of free access to market-leading solar PV plant monitoring software.

This offer is exclusive to Proinso’s customers in India, and can help save up to $500 per project.

Proinso’s project clients in India will get complimentary one-year access to the monitoring module on EIRA, one of the most advanced asset monitoring and management platforms available in the solar industry.

EIRA is a unified software platform developed by ICE and working on a proprietary AI engine which allows assets to function as an integrated unit. The platform enables asset owners and managers to access the health of their renewable energy assets in less than three seconds, and fuller details in fewer than three clicks.

EIRA is hosted on Amazon Cloud Server, making it the most stable monitoring platform with the highest uptime.

All projects in one dashboard

EIRA’s primary objective is to increase profitability and enhance the efficiency of solar projects by enabling asset owners, managers and field teams to leverage the power of connected devices.

The platform uses machine learning to provide better fault detection and diagnosis, and to action real-time preventive maintenance. Advanced analytics can predict asset reliability and lifetime, and can assign actionable tickets to the right person.

One of the unique aspects of this platform is that it allows asset managers to access all projects in a single dashboard.

The platform is device-agnostic and comes with local support for Indian customers.

Proinso’s clients with projects from 50kW in size qualify for the exclusive promotion, enabling them to save up to Rs35,000 on setup and subscription costs in the first year.

Following the first year of free subscription, customers will be able to renew their EIRA subscription at a discounted price of Rs20,000 for five years, the lowest price for a premium PV monitoring service available in India.

Kunal Chandra, MD at Proinso South Asia, said: “We observed monitoring adoption rates increasing globally, with some countries like Japan taking an extra step to make it mandatory.

Monitoring standards are lacking

“India is lagging behind with the majority of the market by still relying on monitoring systems provided by inverter manufacturers, which have very limited scope.

“We believe remote monitoring will play a key role in increasing energy yields and reducing operating costs in both the rooftop and utility segments, and are excited to be the first company in India to offer it as an added value to our clients.”

ICE was founded by a team of solar industry professionals with more than 40 years of cumulative experience in the sector, combined with passion for technology and innovation.

Its portfolio of more than 120 MWp of solar PV assets, under management in more than 150 cities across 10 states in India, serves as a guarantee of its comprehensive understanding of the solar industry, which it leveraged with the creation of EIRA.

Thirisala Devi, Director for EIRA and Promoter at ICE, said: “With a team of more than 100 engineers spread across India, Inspire Clean Energy has the strongest solar PV service network in the country. We are excited to launch this partnership and help Proinso’s customers improve their plant returns.

“Proinso’s customers will also be able to access the premium features of EIRA, including ticketing modules, portfolio management, advanced analytics and generation scheduling and forecasting, at a discounted price.”
