WHO WE ARE

We are Power Factors, developer of the world’s leading cloud platform for renewable energy companies. Our SaaS platform, Drive, is used to manage over 20 Gigawatts of renewable energy across the planet (enough to power approximately 1.5 million homes).

Our company is going through accelerated growth fueled by the unprecedented transition to clean, renewable energy. Visit our web site at www.pfdrive.comto learn more about us.

The Drive platform continues to extend throughout the renewable energy market. Our platform collects millions of IoT and other data points, cleanses the data, detects occurring issues, identifies leading indicators to predict future issues, and adds a full advanced analytic capability on top of this rich, high value dataset. In addition to issue detection and analytics, Drive adds the toolsets needs to take analytic insights to action such as case management and work order management.
