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). We’re tackling one of the world’s most important challenges in making renewable energy the world’s leading source of power by driving down the cost to operate wind and solar power plants. Our company is going through accelerated growth fueled by the unprecedented transition to clean, renewable energy.

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.

To our customers, we deliver excellent customer service and a high value system of engagement that provides the results they are looking for: lower operations costs and higher output from their renewable energy power plants.   We are an agile development company, big enough to make an impact, but small enough to move quickly to execute in a growing industry and take advantage of rapidly evolving technology. To our employees, we provide a culture that values respect, teamwork, transparency, and achievement.
