I would like to be able to tell the Sense unit how many amps of power my electrical service is capable of from the utility (100, 125, 150, 200a, etc…) and then have it alert me if I approach or exceed it.
Where I see this being useful is that right now a LOT of people are getting EV’s and adding charging to existing electrical panels. The concerning ones are the 100a, or 125a services (or even some 150 and 200a services). EV’s can draw a ton of power, but full service panel replacement/upgrades are quite expensive.
So any kind of monitoring the Sense can provide would be useful!
This could also be interesting to help understand bus loading on a panel with solar backfeed. It would be interesting to see if you are utilizing more amps in aggregate than your panel is rated for (since code allows you to overload it by 20% when backfeeding solar into the load side of an existing panel).
Additionally, for EV charging, being able to run a report on power consumption peaks for the last year would be interesting to prove how much headroom on a service was available in order to allow installation of EV charging without needing an upgraded panel. Showing actual usage numbers is an alternative to using “calculated” load profiles which are generally far off.
