We’re considering adding two PW2 batteries to our existing setup (16.2kW solar, 400W, 2x panels, 2x Sense - one on each panel). Before making the investment, trying to better understand our current setup using the reporting from Sense… can someone help shed some light on what I’m seeing?
Looking at the meter graph, I’m trying to understand what I see… this is from yesterday afternoon:
Are the solar & consumption numbers shown in the meter graph independent of each other or is consumption a net?
IOW, with the consumption (red) in the solar (orange) area on the left side, is this correct?
I’m generating enough via solar to cover the consumption needs on this panel… an thus, any orange not in the red is being sold back to the grid at that time. So, for the 50% of the left side of the picture, I’m operating at a surplus 99% of the time (excluding those 4 spikes)
Or am I wrong and this is correct:
I’m not generating enough solar and the red in the orange area is pulling from the grid for additional demand not met from solar generation.
I believe it’s the former but wanted to validate.
Furthermore… because I have a pair of fuse boxes, solar inverters & Sense devices, it is true that things aren’t shared. IOW, solar generation is not combined, each panel is operating independently. Is that correct?
