I recently purchases solar and my company didn’t supply me with the meter that shows usage and production. I saw sense has that ability.
The problem I have is, the solar only comes into the panel attached to my service outside and doesn’t come into the houses main breaker. I also have a couple electric cars and the breaker for that is before the main feed to my house.
So in order to read my usage and production accurately, I’d need to install the sense where the service comes into my main breaker on the side of my house and the solar portion as well. I tried doing it yesterday and it worked, but the panel was too small for the sense device and I wouldn’t be able to close my main breaker box. Is is possible to open the service side and put the clamps around there? Has anyone done that? I’m guessing I’d have to talk to the power company to see if they would allow that. I think if I could do that, I could put the sense in a different part of the breaker box.
Thanks in advance!
