Once upon a time, we installed our 1st photovoltaik plant and half a year later a second one.

And these plants send their production data to big free web sites, where many other plants was registered. There we could perfectly compare our plants with others.

But we have also a blog and searched for a way to visualize our actual production data there. We found out, that some of these web sites provide an API to access the data.

So was the idea for this service born. It provides a quick overview for the actual production data of today, this month and this year.

You are invited to register your plant and use this service too, we still serve 292 plants!

There is also a mobile version available.
