Solar Analytics was recently accepted into the Plug and Play Tech Center (PnP) - the world's largest tech accelerator - in Sunnyvale, California, and our Product Manager/Professional Frisbee Coach Yew Eng Ng is currently meeting with mentors, VCs and angel investors from the company's huge network of corporate partners.

Solar Analytics will be in full force at the Smart Energy Council's Smart Expo 2018 this week; catch up with the latest on peer-to-peer energy trading, energy data for smart decision making, monitoring energy use and storage performance, and the huge uptick in consumer demand for solar, by one of our team at the conference tracks. Or simply introduce yourself to one of us on the show floor, wearing our purple I Love Solar tshirts. We'd love to meet you.
