SunReports, Inc. was founded in January 2008 by HP Baumeister. Early development was centered around providing a place where users are able to store and manage their manually collected energy data, a service that remains in effect today. By developing tools for users to record both their solar PV data as well as their household energy data, SunReports has created a valuable location for the management, analysis, and comparison of energy data across multiple user sets. Recent innovations include the development of a 'monitoring system on a chip' which allows very low cost, 'zero configuration required' hardware at the user location, as well as a patent pending way of communicating with solar PV inverters.
