July Newsletter

Summer is here!

Welcome to the July edition of the DECK newsletter.  We've got a lot of things brewing currently, and we're excited to let you in on a few of these things.  We've been hard at work on many new features in our application, which are just about to break the horizon.  Please stay tuned here for upcoming announcements on these as we roll them out!

Get by with a Little Help from Your Friends

DECK Monitoring is now offering a service that has been requested by many of our customers. You may choose to have an expert DECK support technician come to your project location to provide oversight and support for your monitoring installation. We call this service OTIS: On-site Technical Installation Support.


Your OTIS advisor will be able to provide advice, instructions and expertise to help troubleshoot potential issues with Modbus communications, data acquisition servers, and internet connectivity. This surprisingly affordable service will help you avoid common errors and keep your installation on time and within budget. OTIS service from DECK is also a great opportunity for less experienced installers to receive expert training for monitoring installation and web network communications.

OTIS service is not intended to be a replacement for a contract with a professional installer... you must have a licensed and competent electrician on site to conduct every installation! Our support professionals will not physically complete any installation tasks. DECK can also provide complete installation services for customers who desire that service. We offer this suite of installation support services to help you find the level of support you need for each monitoring installation you conduct. Talk to your DECK account executive for more information about these services!

Come visit us at Intersolar North America 2012, once again held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. DECK will exhibit in booth number 8529, located in the Balance of Systems section in West Level 2. This year’s exhibition runs from Tuesday July 10 to Thursday July 12. We hope to see you there!

Special Mention

This past month DECK has been honored with an award from the City of Portland, as having contributed in a significant way to Portlands small business sector.  The award is part of the Mayor’s counsel for business development in conjunction with the Portland Development Commission which recognizes local business contributions to the economy. DECK qualified for contributing to both the energy and software segments and were awarded recognition because of this.

The award was received in the company of 800 local executives and participants of PDC programs, and was presented by Mayor Sam Adams and Richard Woodling (Consul General to the Philippines.)

The award was accepted by Lars Jensen and Joel Birchler, who thanked Mayor Adams and the PDC for hosting the nights event and to "...creating a business environment in Portland where the youth truly come to retire..."  Good one, guys.  

This is a wonderful tribute that we've been awarded with, and something we couldn't have achieved without the dilligence of everyone here at DECK. Great work, team.

DECK Project Showcase


This months call out project is our Huffhines project.  A lot of work went into this project - it's DECKed out to the nines. Solar PV, Wind, Solar Thermal, and an on-site Electric Vehicle charger.  Special mention goes to the interactive LEED map on this.
