The options offered by smart phone technology and apps are virtually limitless. We’ve featured a number of green apps here on CleanTechnica, but I can’t remember hearing or reading about one for monitoring solar panel performance.. until now. SunPower has just unveiled one for its customers.

Last week, SunPower, a world-leading producer of solar cell, solar panels, and solar systems (& California’s most popular solar panel last I checked), announced “a new solar energy monitoring application for Android™-powered smartphones to its SunPower Monitoring System portfolio.”

Basically, customers can track both their home energy use and environmental savings and the performance of their solar power system with the app. They can look at such data in real-time or historically. They can also share that info with friends and family.

The app is free and can be downloaded from Android Market. Check it out if you have a SunPower system and drop us any comments you have about it!

I imagine there are other apps like this out there (but maybe not) — drop a note in the comments if you know of and recommend any.
