Locus Energy, a provider of monitoring and data analytics services to the solar PV industry, has received certification from San Francisco's Green Business Program.
According to a release, Locus Energy completed a series of sustainability measures to reduce the environmental impacts of its business including the use of supplies, waste management practices, and energy and water efficiency.
Locus Energy's platform provides its customers with a tightly integrated hardware and web-based software package used to track the performance of solar PV systems. The revenue-grade energy production data is collected by Locus Energy's LGate power meter lineup, and uploaded to its SolarOS monitoring website in real-time.
"We are excited to be recognized as a member of San Francisco's Green Business Program, an initiative that is focused on working hand in hand with businesses to help develop policies that help support a healthy, safe work environment, minimize environmental impacts, and decrease operating expenses," said Michael Herzig, CEO of Locus Energy. "We feel strongly that in order to help advance the clean energy cause, Locus needs to set an example as an environmentally conscious corporate citizen, and this award affirms our continued commitment to achieving that goal."
The San Francisco Green Business Program's mission is to help San Francisco businesses adopt environmental practices that are sustainable as well as profitable. The Program is comprised of three city agencies: SF Department of Environment, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, and is a member of the Bay Area Green Business Program and the California Green Business Network.
