UGE Monitors Renewable Energy Sources

By TWICE Staff On Jan 30 2012 - 6:01am




LAS VEGAS — Urban Green Energy (UGE) revealed ViewUGE, a webbased remote monitoring system for green energy.

The system allows users to monitor energy generation from UGE’s small wind turbines and other sources of renewable energy, and energy consumption.

UGE works with homeowners and businesses to install small wind turbines to provide an alternative energy source. The new monitoring ties small wind with the smart grid, allowing customers to determine how much each alternative energy channel supplies, and how much the house is using.

While the company primarily markets and sells small wind turbines, the interface allows users to monitor energy produced by solar panels and other sources within the same interface. ViewUGE also allows users to monitor the weather to determine how that affects energy collection.

“[Customers] can monitor how much energy they are using,” said Nick Blitterswyk, CEO of UGE. “You have a certain level of accountability. Renewable energy is inherently variable, making monitoring and connectivity a critical component to broader adoption,” said Blitterswyk, in a statement.
