GTM Names Draker the Fastest Growing Independent Solar Monitoring Provider in the US

GTM Research Ranks Draker #1 in the US based on number of MW added in 2013

Austin, TX -- May 21, 2014 --GTM Research has named Draker as the fastest-growing independent solar monitoring provider in the US for the second year in a row, based on the number of megawatts added in 2013. Additionally, GTM has ranked Draker to be the #1 independent monitoring software provider in the U.S. industrial PV market (defined as plants ranging from 1 megawatt to 5 megawatts).

“Draker’s fastest growth two years running demonstrates our consistent leadership in the continually evolving solar market. We outpaced other providers due to strong results across a very broad segment of the market - commercial, industrial and utility,” said Draker CEO, Chach Curtis. “Many thanks to all of our loyal customers who continue to value our broad range of panel-to-grid (P2G) monitoring and control solutions, and our innovative performance analytics.”

As the first company in the United States to provide independent monitoring and performance analysis of energy produced by solar arrays, customer-driven innovation continues to be a large part of Draker’s DNA. The type of independent energy metering, verification, reporting, and performance analysis Draker pioneered has become a key contributor to the rapid growth of the solar industry.
