naak came from our collective experience operating solar companies. The rapidly changing energy landscape taught us that in order to survive and thrive, you need to be ready for what’s ahead. Today, the first step is access to reliable data and the ability to differentiate your offering.
With consumers slowly numbing to solar sales calls, “race to the bottom” pricing trends, shifting rate structures, emerging interest in energy storage, and costly frustration due to Wi-Fi failures, it was clear that the industry needed better tools. With this in mind, we set out to find a cost effective, growth-driven solution that addressed these issues.
After scouring the globe for a solution, we were fortunate enough to meet the folks at carbonTRACK, a technology company with a robust energy management and IoT platform based in Melbourne, Australia. After months of diligence and field testing, we realized that the platform offered everything we were looking for, and then some.
The naak energy cloud platform is powered by carbonTRACK’s tried and true SmartHub. With 6 years of field tested performance and thousands of happy customers in 4 continents, naak brings you the holy grail of energy management and control. We invite you to explore how your solar and energy services, powered by naak, are unbeatable.
