At PCH Software we have developed proven SSP (Standard Solar Processes) blueprint for a successful implementation of the renewable energy no matter what the source of green energy is. This standarzation enables us to apply the best practices to any process, and or sub-process involved with the project. For example, the asset management of a solar project could be challenging.
While it has many advantages, solar power can be a challenge for energy companies when it comes to management. To start, you need to connect solar panels to the utility grid. You also need to ensure that your cellular modules, gateways and web platforms are all integrated properly, without breaks in connectivity. Supposing that your system is fully integrated, you still need this equipment and software to tell you in real-time whether your solar station is delivering sufficient energy levels and maintaining load balance on the grid. Any renewable energy source, such as solar, wind, or biomass, experiences fluctuating energy generation in response to changes in the weather and other environmental factors. Your power grid needs to adapt to these changes, so you can ensure that you’re maximizing your grid usage and load at all times.
These factors are complicated by the fact that renewable energy plants, such as solar and wind, tend to be clustered and widely distributed. When an energy system becomes too complex, it can cause a logistical nightmare for technicians and other grid managers. For example, making sure that each panel is running efficiently becomes more difficult as you add more panels to the mix. What’s more, if you have thousands of panels in a grid, there is a higher potential for vulnerabilities in your system. Generally, the more complex your system is and the more devices you have in your grid, the more likely you are to have holes in your system’s security. We recommend choosing an end-to-end solution to minimize security risks and simplify your project.

The Solar Standard Processes (SSP) is a proprietary Solar systems solution methodology created by PCH Software Inc., this is the competitive advantage PCH has compared to it's solar solution system integrator competitors.
At PCH Software we have 80 years of combined project management experience in energy sector, PCH Software team uses its proven proprietary Solar Standard Process (SPP) methodology to systematically solve and address every aspect of a solar farm implementation. We start every implementation with an assessment of specific energy needs. This includes a detailed analysis of land, its location, and governing laws and regulations. We then design the solar farm around those needs utilizing one or a selection of leading technologies, including: solar, batteries, demand managers, drone services, cloud based monitoring, security and other smart energy management devices. We don't believe in a cookie-cutter solution, so we never offer one. All PCH Software Solar Solution systems are fully custom to meet client's goals.

Does the array act in any way like a “roof,” thereby affecting how much rainfall reaches the earth below, potentially affecting drainage/run-off on the existing and surrounding areas?
