The below spreadsheet should provide a clue.
I’m running a bunch of GPU based mining rigs that keep my house warn during these cold winter months so I don’t have to use my heat pump. I track power consumption from each breaker and compare to earnings. I also take overall solar production and whole house consumption into consideration (these 2 values are pulled from my Sense), and calculate net power cost and net profit.
I also double check the Sense reported net consumption against what the power company is showing (the columns highlighted in yellow), and I’m impressed that the variance is less than 1 kWh a day on average.
Earnings are way less than they were (as much as $500/day) but I’m still making a bit of profit and heat my house for free. I’m using Brultech equipment to monitor current draw on individual breakers. I have a total of 78 channels available to monitor and plot power consumption from individual breakers.
Here are my top consumers, both in terms of daily kWh, and plotted against time (yesterday’s readings):
And here are all the breakers/channels I have with individual CT’s on them:
I find the Brultech GEM (Green Eye Monitor) and Sense complement each other. Both have their strengths and weaknesses.
Overall top consumers from yesterday:
Except for the dryer, Sense is categorizing all of it as Always On.
As for the solar panels, I got a total of 128. 56 on my shop roof, 24 next to the shop, and 2 more 24 panel arrays on the hill behind the shop building.
But we are probably getting way off topic now…
