Today, Bandera Electric Cooperative announced the release of their new cloud based software, Apolloware, a solution for monitoring solar and energy storage installations in real time. The software allows the solar array owner to receive enhanced financial benefit from energy generated during daily peak energy consumption which, in turn, helps accelerate the return on the investment. 

In addition, the software solution allows the utility to reduce system design and operation costs. This unique solution sets BEC Solar apart from all others. BEC developed Apolloware to allow solar members to monitor consumption, production and pricing in real time. 

BEC Renewable Energy Program Manager Miguel Rivera and Database Administrator Perry Holt test Apolloware cloud based software that monitor's solar energy output in real time. Apolloware allows solar array owners to receive enhanced financial benefit from energy generated during daily peak energy consumption which helps accelerate the return on the investment.

"Apolloware benefits all parties because it provides financial benefits that are correlated directly to the wholesale energy market," said William Hetherington, BEC CEO/general manager. "Since it is a cloud based solution, it is independent from the utility allowing autonomy and transparency of the data."
