Hi all! I have a Sense with solar monitoring. I am adding batteries that are tied directly to the inverters, which will charge the batteries directly via solar DC.
When I add these batteries, my instinct tells me that Sense will see a reduction in solar generation while the batteries are charging, because the energy will not make it to the measuring point in the panel. Then in the evening when the batteries discharge I expect to see solar usage continue on, with the battery energy going through the inverter lines to my home. Basically I will experience a time shift of the solar energy reporting, to some degree. Is that right?
I think that makes sense and the accounting will work out. It’s a shame that I won’t have a good idea of my actual generation at any moment though, I could probably run a third set of clamps, or would be willing to install another Sense unit if it integrated as one, to be able to split this out and discern battery vs solar vs grid!
