CT Connection points on BUSBAR Panel


#1

Ok, so I have a brand new main panel courtesy of Solarcity when i put in solar, problem is, it is a busbar to the net meter and I cannot connect the CT’s at that point.

The main feeds loop back down through the panel into the ground, so I clamped my CT’s on the cables at this point, which puts the net meter between my main disco, and the CT’s, everything installed clean and green, but i was curious if the meter would restrict device detection? I can clearly see when even the smallest device turns on or off, so I believe not. However I wanted to run it by folks with experience on this stuff.

Thanks!

Looks good to me :relaxed: You will even get to measure the power the utility meter consumes!

Awesome, I was sorta wondering if the net meter might have some coupling or filtering that would prevent any harmonics passing back into the grid.
