The difference between SolarAnywhere® and that of a professionally installed and calibrated MET station was calculated to be equal to or less than the measurement accuracy of the weather stations. Combine this accuracy with the increased reliability that SystemCheck offers, and you have an O&M solution that costs less and saves valuable personnel resources.
