The Dashboard

→ Portfolio Overview Map

The overview map allows you to quickly identify any sites/systems with issues by location. The icon shown for a given site reflects the nature and status of that site.

Production Sites

The icon shown indicates the status of both the aggregator system as well as the subsystems (if there are any). 

Icon Shown

Explanation

Primary System Production Status

Subsystem Production Status

All production meters have reported energy production recently, and it is during daylight hours.

NORMAL

NORMAL

Some production meters have reported energy production recently, and it is during daylight hours, however, at least one subsystem production meter is experiencing issues. NORMAL At least one subsystem status is COM ERR or NOT PRODUCING
All production meters are experiencing issues (production meters are unreachable or reporting 0 production) and it is during daylight hours. COM ERR or NOT PRODUCING COM ERR or NOT PRODUCING

It is outside of daylight hours and at least one production meter has reported energy production during the day, however, at least one subsystem production meter is experiencing issues. NORMAL At least one subsystem status is COM ERR or NOT PRODUCING

It is outside of daylight hours and all production meters have reported energy production during the day. NORMAL NORMAL

It is outside of daylight hours (and irradiance meters confirm this), but production meters are reporting energy production over 1% of system DC size. NORMAL NORMAL

Consumption Sites

The icon shown indicates the status of both the aggregator system as well as the subsystems (if there are any). 

Icon Shown

Explanation

Primary System Production Status

Subsystem Production Status

All meters have reported energy consumption recently.

NORMAL

NORMAL

Meters are reporting 0 values, or last reported energy usage was over 12 hours ago. NORMAL NORMAL

Some meters have reported energy consumption recently, however, at least one subsystem consumption meter is experiencing issues. NORMAL At least one subsystem status is COM ERR

All consumption meters are unreachable. COM ERR COM ERR

Hybrid Sites

Sites with both production and consumption meters are considered hybrid sites. Such sites have both a production and a consumption status. However, on the map, only the production status determines the icon shown.

→ Carbon Equivalency

 

Carbon.png

To Calculate the Carbon Equivalent of Solar Photovoltaic production Mana uses the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) published formula:

Emission Factor

1,559 lbs CO2/MWh × (4.536 × 10-4 metric tons/lb) × 0.001 MWh/kWh = 7.07 × 10-4 metric tons CO2/kWh

Mana's algorithm takes the aggregate value of all the renewable energy produced in the current year to date, and uses the aggregate kWh value to calculate the carbon equivalent.

The Sites List

→ Search for sites

You can use the sites search box to narrow down the list of sites shown on the Sites page.

The search box enables searching by various criteria:

Search by Site or System ID

You can also search for a site or a system by it's unique ID:

Searching + Filtering

You can also combine the "Filter" functionality and the search functionality. For example, to find all schools whose production or consumption devices are offline, set the "Filter" to "Offline" and enter "school" into the search box:

The Issues List

→ Search for issues

You can use the issue search box to narrow down the list of issues shown.

The search box enables searching by various criteria:

Search by Issue Code

If you wish to search for issue by #, then you have to include the complete issue ID. For example: RCE-2259

This is necessary because if we allowed partial matches in the Issue # field, then searching for "100" would bring up all issues that have "100" in the Issue # (or any of the other fields). So, RCE-100 would match, but so would RCE-1000 and RCE-1001 etc.

Searching for Closed Issues

Whether the search results contain closed issues or not is determined by the filter applied to the view. So, if you wish to find closed issues, then either set the filter to "Closed Issues" or "All Issues":

Issue Search and "Threaded View"

Note that previously another factor that could influence whether you find an issue or not is the "Threaded View" filter. When this is clicked, only the latest issue for each site is shown. So if you searched for RCE-2258 and "Threaded View" was on, then it wouldn't find it because there is a newer issue for Kauluwela already (RCE-2260). Because this can get confusing, we've modified the site to disable "Threaded View" when using the search box. So if you search for "Kauluwela" and have the filter set to "All Issues" then you should see all issues for "Kauluwela."

Filter + Search

In addition to issue code and site name, you can also use the search box to search for issues by summary, description, resolution, the latest issue comment, city, state, tag, or company name. So, for example, if you wish to see all open issues for all sites in Honolulu, you should set the "filter" to "Open Issues" and search for "Honolulu":
