Gross Or Net Meter? : This will affect how your energy monitoring system is installed and configured. Get it right so you get ALL the information you NEED! Finally you will know what is going on with your generation, consumption, import and export. Helping you maximise your solar investment.
Some energy monitoring systems, DO NOT DELIVER all of the information you need!
So what kind of Feed In Tariff [FIT] are you connected to? Gross or Net?
Gross FIT : Consumption = Import Generation = Export
Net FIT : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export
Aussie Homes Confused Over Net Metered Solar Systems
BEWARE Large Net Metered Solar Can Export Your Investment! : Why are householders installing a 3 kW to 5 kW solar power system, when there is little power demand during the sunny hours. A fridge plus other small appliances means little financial return, when paid six or eight cents per exported kW.
In NSW each 1 kW of power exported annually returns ONLY an average of $85 per year!
If this sounds like your home? ALL IS NOT LOST as there is a far quicker way to maximise the $ return.
What You Do Not Know : With Net metering you do not know export and consumption.
BEFORE SOLAR : Consumption = Imported Power
NOW AFTER SOLAR : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export
What You Need To Do : You need data to be in an educated position to act, manage and save. Save meaning using less imported power and more generated power. Installing an energy monitoring system is the ONLY way to get this data!
Start Saving Fast! : Installing an Energy Monitoring System will supply you with the missing data :
Import Export Generation Consumption
Electricity Bills At Error With Net FIT
Am I Using More Or Less Power? : Any Aussie householder will find it hard to answer this after installing a Net FIT solar power system
Bill Only Shows : Imported and exported power! What is incorrect on the electricity bill of many Net FIT households, is the fact the Daily kWh usage, NOW reflects IMPORTED POWER! NOT the total power consumed as stated still on th bill!
Get The Data To Make The Correct Decision : Such as :
Knowing how and when to reduce imported power
Knowing how and when to use your generated power
Knowing what appliances use most of your power
Knowing if you have enough power to support batteries
Maximise Your Solar Investment : Once you start offsetting imported electricity costs with your solar power, you will maximise the return of your Net FIT Solar Power investment! Simple.....

Solar power and electricity consumption in graphical / tabulated forms
Supporting ALL Aussie electricity tariff types, with ability to compare
Understand 100% Your Solar Power Investment And Electricity Consumption
Solar Inverter With Wi-Fi / Blueteeth : Your inverters data may be on-line in the cloud. If you are missing the consumption data we can add this. See if your data can be transferred to PVOutput HERE search for 'auto upload' in their help documentation.
Energy Monitoring Consumption Data : If your inverter is sending data to PVOutput you only need to add a HUB and the required consumption transmitter and current clamps.
We Configure And Setup Your Energy Dashboards : Making it easy for you! You simply login! See our SERVICES page.
See our ONLINE ELECTRICITY MONITORING page for a better understanding of the features and benefits of PVOutput. Go HERE to see live consumption data using the HUB on PVOutput.
Worldwide Solar Power / Consumption Online Monitoring Setup Service
We can add your solar power data to PVOutput. You may already have solar generation data on PVOutput but no consumption data. We can add the consumption data, thus you know when you are importing or exporting!
We offer you this service when:
You purchase one of our on-line Electricity Monitoring Solutions
You want to connect your existing compatible electricity monitoring system to PVOutput
You already have solar generation via blue tooth / wifi on PVOutput and are looking for the consumption data, to compute import / export
If you are short of the time or the expertise needed, visit SERVICES We simply remove the pain and hassle of the process for you, no matter where you live on this planet!

September 2017 : NEW Smart Solar Power triggering dashboard HERE
We will make sure you have easy access to all the information you need :
In Your Face
On Your Laptop
On Your Mobile
Choose $85 Or $425 For Each 1 kW Of Your Solar Power
Use It Or Export It : Nobody wants to export their solar power investment! Currently in NSW exported power is worth little.
Meaning each kWh of your solar power exported over the year when averaged [in NSW], is only going to give you a small financial return of $85 [based on 6 cents]! [Maths 1 X 3.9 X 365 X 0.06]
Now that same 1 kWh of power could be worth $425 when used to offset imported power costs [based on 30 cents per kWh]!
Energy Monitoring Delivers The Data And Savings : So hopefully you now see, why you need instant energy monitoring feedback?
Smart Apps : Using the Android app to the right is great for knowing when you are importing or exporting. Add to this our new SMART Solar Power auto triggering dashboard.
SMART Solar Power Dashboard : Send excess solar power directly to any 10A socket or Smart appliance in your home on auto-pilot! We developed this dashboard to help you maximise the use of your solar power and make bigger energy savings.
Inverter Faulty No Feedback : Our research shows householders DO NOT CHECK!. What happens when the inverter trips out and the electricity bill is not being checked, is a simple loss of financial return! Easy to fix!
Get Instant Alerts : Be alerted at once, reduce financial loss. Email alerts are the go with instant feedback via mobile app or browser.
Real-Time Data Weekly Reports : Both easily supplied.
5 Questions For You : Here to help you get the data you need.
#1 Do you want your electricity bill to alert you of solar inverter issues in 3 months time?
#2 When was the last time you checked your inverter?
#3 Why would you not monitor your solar power and consumption?
#4 How do you know if you are using more or less energy since installing solar power?
#5 Do you know when you are exporting / importing?
Visit SOLAR POWER for a fully detailed explanation of how ELECTRICITY OFFSETTING works, in a Net FIT environment.
Sizing A Solar Power System : Installing an electricity monitoring system in your home before you install Solar PV connected to a net meter, will help you size the system correctly. Making sure after installation your 'sunny hour' generated power is offsetting imported power costs only. Importantly not going back to the grid as unwanted excess power.
Sizing A Battery Bank : Your Solar Power Monitoring System will also supply you with the information needed for this task.
