Monitoring Inverter Energy Output to Grid?
« on: December 21, 2018, 10:00:30 am »
I am replacing my SE6000A inverter with a SE7600H-US but will have to export limit this 7.6 kW inverter to 6.0 kW in order to keep my NEM (long story).  SE support said that would not be a problem if installed an electrical meter with CT on line between inverter and meter then program the 7.6 kW inverter.  Is there a way to monitor my amount of exported power within Vera?  I plan to take actions such as turning on my AC and or HW electric tank when I get close to 6 kW export levels.

I have installed the Solar Meter app.  It doesn't readily show the amount of energy that has been exported.  Can it be modified to do so?
