Once renewable energy systems like green roofs, solar power systems and wind turbines are installed, owners often want to verify their effectiveness, particularly when rebates and tax credits are involved. With the HOBO U30/Wi-Fi Remote Monitoring System from Onset Computer Corp., installers like Clean Energy Design Co. can install sensors without running wires, using Wi-Fi to gather data that documents performance. Onset's data logger also monitors the energy systems, sending alerts if problems arise. The remote transmitters can be located indoors or outdoors.
