Efficient energy management

Solar for Schools to start a new collaboration with Solare Datensysteme GmbH (SDS), manufacturer of Solar-Log™

Geislingen-Binsdorf and Munich, Germany – Solar for Schools and SDS announced a collaboration that will better Solar for Schools’ solar energy monitoring capabilities. Solar for Schools is a social impact, internet-based business enabling schools to generate their own solar energy, reduce their carbon footprint, and educate the next generation on sustainability. SDS is the manufacturer of the Energy Management System Solar-Log™ and a leading company in the areas of solar monitoring, smart energy and feed-in management. The Solar Log™ management system ensures that each solar power system functions properly, that as much of the produced energy as possible is utilized, and that the optimal voltage is maintained. Solar for Schools has decided to utilize the Solar-Log™ system as part of its solar power systems.

Solar for Schools provides schools across the United Kingdom, Germany and India with free solar power systems. It manages the funding, development, installation and on-going maintenance of its systems. Produced energy is directly used by the schools, and any surplus energy produced goes into the local energy grid. There are no up-front costs to the schools, and due to low energy prices offered by Solar for Schools, schools save money which they can reinvest into their students. Solar for Schools also provides valuable educational resources and learning opportunities for both students and staff.

“Almost all of our solar power systems will be managed by Solar-Log™. We have decided to use their management system because we not only are able to oversee our systems, but we can also optimize our energy consumption. The WEB-Portal, the compatibility for different users, and that it is unbound to the inverter are the highlights of the system”, says Martin Augustin, COO and Co-founder of Solar for Schools.

“Solar for Schools does more than simply commit to providing renewable energy. The company also promotes awareness of renewable energies and sustainability by students and users of its systems. We at SDS find that inspirational and happily to support them”, says Dr. Frank Schlichting, CEO of Solare Datensysteme GmbH.
