My solar equipment on the house is on the south side of the house, right by the south east corner. My panel is half way through the east side. At the time of solar installation the electrician was completely baffled about what the solar attachment was and after a lot of back and forth he realized he couldn’t do what I wanted because the proximity of the breaker box panel and where the solar stuff terminates are too far away.
At least I think that is the case. The clips can’t attach to something on the solar side and into the panel.
Between the utility, the solar provider (who took SEVEN MONTHS to activate my panels due to sheer incompetence and tried to blame the utility), and the utility I’m not sure who to ask and how to even explain this.
I think perhaps I need to contact an electrician and get the panel moved close to the SE corner where the solar stuff terminates. He’d have to know exactly what to do with the solar attachment. I’ve had bad experience with the electrician who installed the Sense - I mentioned I was getting solar and wanted to ask his opinion if the solar attachment would work but every syllable out of my mouth was rebutted with an abrupt "No solar! 60 holes drilled into your roof! Solar is bad! - and then the electrician from Vivint/Sunrun who refused to help and the electricians from the utility to inspect not underdstanding what I wanted.
I feel like the entire universe is against me on this. I just want Sense to tell me my power usage and how much is used from solar vs conventional. I know this will cost money but I’d rather get a modern panel and quite frankly, spending a couple grand isn’t an issue.
Any advice greatly appreciated I just need to know exactly who to tell and what to do to make this happen, and pay them for it and knock this off my bucket list.
