In-Depth Insights into the Impact of Behind-the-Meter Solar Output

Accurately forecast demand and plan for the future

Systems that produce onsite power like behind-the-meter solar (BTM) installations, have been on the rise across the U.S. Despite growing popularity, there has been no systematic reporting or real-time collection of BTM output, making it extremely difficult to accurately model BTM generation impacts on electricity demand. We've changed that now, bringing light to a critical data point.

Through a partnership with Locus Energy, we provide actual, near real-time BTM output for over 164,000 monitored sites across the U.S. totaling 1.5 GW of capacity. Our data set reports solar production and solar capacity on a zip-code by zip-code basis, but users have the flexibility to query the regions most important to them at the frequencies that best suit their needs. Our analysts use this data regularly to uncover trends in volatility and identify the corresponding impact to real-time prices. 

Our Behind-the-Meter Solar Output offers a view you can't find anywhere:

  • Extensive Network: We partner with Locus Energy, a leading provider in the residential, commercial, and industrial PV markets with over 164,000 sites, globally, to provide you with the most accurate BTM data available. 
  • Thorough Market Analysis: From California to New England, our data unmasks the regional impacts of BTM. Get insight into price volatility patterns.
  • Quick Access: Data is accessible via API, allowing simple integration of near real-time BTM output into your analysis.
