How much are your solar panels generating?
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 14 February 2011 at 9:39 am
Watching the kWhs clock up as the sun shines is one of the great pleasures of solar PV panels. But which meter do you watch? I watch the total generating meter, and am ashamed to say that I haven't yet worked out what all the different buttons on the inverter do. But that's all about to change...
I've recently got an email from someone else with solar PV panels saying that the figures on his total generation meter are not the same as those on the inverter, and asking whether that's the same for others.
So I'm asking you:
- Does your inverter give the same measure of total kWhs generated as your total generation meter?
- If not, which is greater, and how big is the difference?
