Installed Sense Solar 3 years ago. Solar system is a leased 5 kw 25 panel enphase inverter system. Purchased Sense mainly to keep tabs on usage versus net meter KW surplus. We can heat our home with gas hot water baseboard or mini-split heat pumps. Usually our net surplus allows us to heat our home until December with heat pumps.
This year, went overboard with heating the garage (projects) and had my first electric bill in 7 years. Hopefully Sense will make me more aware of my net surplus and keep me from going over my net credit.
I was hoping that the Sense app had a way of keeping a running total, yearly, of usage versus solar generation. My anniversary date for net credit will be the end of this month. Is there some way to zero usage and production out at that point? This way I could see from that point forward my KW net credit building up with the utility.
The only way I have found to make this work is to perform a complete reset of sense so it forgets the first 2 months of the year. This is a bummer because sense loses all of the detected devices and it takes 6 months for sense to redetect them once again. In 3 years has sense created a better way to achieve this, without a total reset? Just want the ability to start my sense year on the first of March, rather then January.
I am sure others installed Sense for the same purpose. How are you folks setting up your Sense app to perform this function?
