ISO-CAL North America is a one-stop solar radiometer (sensor) calibration service provider. Our professional sales and technical support staff boast a combined work experience of over 35-years in the solar radiometer consulting and calibration service support industry.
Based in sunny Phoenix AZ, USA, our laboratory is fully equipped to meet virtually any solar radiometer calibration requirement, with a strong emphasis on servicing the pyranometer and pyrheliometer calibration service requirements of the utility scale solar renewable energy O&M industry.
Measurement confidence in the field, begins with calibration certainty at the laboratory. There are a several key specification criteria directly impacting pyranometer, UV radiometer, or any global solar radiometerâ€™s measurement uncertainty at the field level. From one solar radiometer make and model to the next, performance and measurement uncertainty will vary. The single common denominator however impacting solar radiometer measurement uncertainty at the field level, is instrument calibration certainty. This why calibration traceability, method and ultimately calibration certainty are so important.
Founded in 2008, Alion Energy has fundamentally redesigned the way we build and maintain community scale solar.
As an innovative EPC and O&M solutions provider, Alion Energy combines robotic installation technology with established construction practices to build local, utility scale projects faster and up to 25% less, while producing more energy than standard fixed-tilt projects.
At Alion Energy, we have one mission â€“ rapidly lower solarâ€™s LCOE to $0.05/kwh in the U.S. by 2016.
This mission required rethinking the entire installation process and not simply making incremental improvements to existing rack systems, which initially copied and retained many of the same materials used for small, residential roof systems.
Alion specifically designed a more efficient construction process for utility scale solar plants by using robotic installation technology and established construction industry practices.
Now, Alion Energy builds utility scale systems twice as fast and with less than half the labor.
At Alion Energy, weÂ go beyond simply building the most cost-effective utility scale solar systems; we build solar plants with LCOEs that can compete with any generation source.Â

AtÂ Alencon Systems, weÂ are passionate about power. WeÂ were founded byÂ world leading power electronics experts whoÂ wanted toÂ apply their unique level ofÂ knowledge andÂ experience toÂ help alternative energy become even more cost competitive with other forms ofÂ generation. ItÂ is ourÂ missionÂ toÂ help utility-scale solar operators harness more ofÂ the sun's energy andÂ reduce theÂ levelized cost ofÂ energy (LCOE) produced from aÂ PV plant. OurÂ unique, utility scaleÂ DCÂ to DCÂ optimizersÂ andÂ central invertersÂ allow more energy toÂ be harvested while driving down theÂ overall Balance ofÂ Systems (BoS) cost ofÂ a utility scale solar installation. OurÂ products feature aÂ remarkableÂ PV-IoTÂ software platformÂ that allows utility scale PVÂ operators toÂ achieve unprecedentedly granular monitoring ofÂ a PVÂ installation. This technology assures allÂ aspects ofÂ the system areÂ running atÂ peak efficiency. Our DC-DC optimizers are fantastic solutions for the PV operations and maintenance market (O&M) as they can allow an existing plant to produce much more power for a very modest investment.
Alenconâ€™s O&M PV retrofit solutions provide the following benefits:
- Alenconâ€™s DC-DC optimizer helps improve the â€śperformance ratioâ€ť of an existing plant by helping to compensate for issues such as module degradation or just poor quality modules by performing maximum power point track at the granular string level\
- Alenconâ€™s DC-DC optimizersâ€™ Â string level MPPT increases the yield of an existing plant by about 7%
- By stepping up voltage, conduction losses are reduced
- By providing the inverter constant, optimal voltage, the inverter runs at higher efficiency
- The string level monitoring is a great â€śO&Mâ€ť tool because it lets a plant operator see exactly where problems are occurring in the plant at the string level
