Surechem has achieved seamless integration of 10 sets of Weather Stations also known as Meteorological Measuring Facilities (MMF) in this project. These stations are equipped with Campbell Scientific CR1000X Dataloggers, connected to compact weather sensors and and solar radiation sensors chosen by the client. Through RJ45 connections, these stations are directly linked to the solar power plant's SCADA system, enabling live data monitoring with utmost efficiency.

Importance of Weather Monitoring Stations in Solar Farm

Solar energy production is greatly influenced by local weather conditions. A proper understanding of these relationships is critical to ensuring that solar energy is a financially and environmentally sustainable renewable energy source. A weather station can be defined as a facility containing instruments and equipment used to observe atmospheric conditions to facilitate weather forecasting for the study of meteorology and climate.


A PV solar site's on-site weather station (MET) provides high-quality weather data that helps measure the amount of solar radiation reaching the surface of the PV modules. This helps analyze and measure what portion of solar radiation is converted to electricity in a particular module configuration. Operators can use real-time data to monitor power generation degradation that can impact energy performance and ROI. Solar irradiance measurements are useful in site selection for photovoltaic systems, calculation of system operating efficiency, and determination of potential improvements in plant configuration.
