Solar Power Monitoring Solutions


This page relates to ALL of our electricity monitoring solutions, suitable for the monitoring of:

  • Total household electricity consumption
  • Solar power connected via a gross / net meter


How To Choose An Electricity Monitor




What Kind Of Feed In Tariff Are You Connected To?

This is important as this will affect your choice of suitable monitoring options. By suitable we mean a monitoring solution that will give you ALL of the information you NEED, so you are in a position to understand 100% what is going on with your generation and consumption.

If you are not going to understand 100% what is going on, then why install monitoring? Some monitoring systems out there, simply do not give you the information you need!

If we know what you have, then we can steer you in the correct direction for the best solution.


    What kind of Feed In Tariff [FIT] are you connected to, Gross or Net?

    Gross FIT : Consumption = Import  &  Generation = Export


    Net FIT : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export



Aussie Householders Confused Over Net Metered Solar Systems

We know the average Aussie householder does not always fully understand the Net FIT / metering. We know this after much discussion with clients where we explain what really happens.

If householders did fully understand Net FIT, then why do we still see householders installing a 3kW solar power system, when they are out all day at work [during the sunny hours], with only have a fridge plus a few other appliances operating in the home? Of course expecting a big financial return!

In NSW where 1kW of power exported is only going to return $85 per year, WHY WHY WHY?

If this sounds like your home? Well ALL IS NOT LOST as there is still a way to maximise the return as best as possible after the event. Meaning you need to install consumption and solar generation monitoring, so you can start saving fast!


      BEFORE SOLAR : Consumption = Imported Power

      AFTER SOLAR : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export


We know you are not going to do the maths on this one, so make it easy on yourself and install a monitoring system to start saving!



Electricity Billing At Error With Net FIT

Incorrect Net Metered Electricity BillThere is one question any Aussie householder will find it hard to answer after installing a Net FIT solar power system and this is:

Is my home now consuming more or less power?


Now with ONLY imported power and exported power on your electricity bill, you are still minus the information needed to know what is going on. And even if you are out checking and recording your solar pv inverter's output on a daily basis, we tend to think you are not sitting down and doing the maths 24/7!

What is still incorrect on the electricity bill of many Net FIT households is the fact the Daily kWh usage NOW reflects IMPORTED POWER! NOT the total power consumed as stated still on th bill!

By installing an electricity consumption and solar power generation monitor you can sit back and make educated decisions based on the data.

Such educated decisions as:

  • Knowing how to reduce imported power
  • Knowing how and when to use your generated power
  • Knowing what appliances use most of your power


Once you learn how to offset electricity costs with your solar power, you will maximise your return on your Net FIT investment! Simple.....

So What Makes Our Solar Monitoring Solutions No #1?

In Home Display Solar Power & Consumption To be honest a lot of our Solar PV Monitoring clients, are also our HOME ELECTRICITY REDUCTION AUDIT clients. Solar PV installation and monitoring is just another logical step in the home electricity reduction process.

The solutions offered up to September 2014 had all been based on the same monitoring hardware. After seeing many exciting improvements, design incentives, hardware and software features across other platforms, it only seems logical to add these to our arsenal of Solar Power Monitoring Solutions.

We back our Solar PV Monitors with excellent support and also go one step further, to enhance the product with additional features where possible.

We will do our best to make sure you have all the information you need, from your Solar PV Monitoring System. Information that can be:


  • In Your Face
  • On Your Laptop
  • On Your Mobile



Keep In Touch With Your Imported & Exported Power

Android App Showing Import, Export, Genration And Consumption





What Kind Of Monitoring Solution Are You Looking For?

Interestingly there are quite a few options now, as we have solutions that encompass more than one hardware platform. Whilst all options will be good for Gross FIT not all calculate the maths for Net FIT. It is with this latter FIT connection, where cheaper monitoring systems FAIL to give the information needed, too be in a better position.  

So if you are looking for:


    LCD Monitoring Of Solar AND / OR Consumption

  • Monitor solar and / or consumption
  • Optional PC / MAC software
  • Optional online dashboard for max 5 circuits
  • Go HERE for the above. Software and optional online dashboards DO NOT currently calculate all of the following information for Net FIT connections. Best for Gross FIT where you will see:

    Consumption = Import  &  Generation = Export


    Online Dashboard Via Browser, Tablet, Mobile App

  • Monitor solar and / or consumption
  • Optional online dashboard for max 10 circuits
  • Go HERE for the above. Dashboard support Gross / Net FIT where you will see:

    Consumption = Generation + Import - Export

    Note: We can configure the hardware and dashboard for you, [as complex] so you simply login once installed.


    Solar Inverter Already On PVOutput? You Need Consumption Data?

  • Inverter is already on PVOutput and you wish to add consumption
  • Go HERE for the above



Research Finds Inverters Are Often Forgotten

SMA Solar PV InverterOur research over the last few years, shows householders DO NOT CHECK their solar pv inverters very often. What happens when the inverter trips off-line and the electricity bill is not being checked, is a simple loss of financial return!

We want to make sure you are alerted at once and therefore do not suffer any financial loss.

Our Solar Power Monitors report 24/7 on the output of your solar inverter.



3 Questions For You

  • #1 Why would you wait for an electricity bill alert in three months time?
  • #2 When was the last time you checked your solar inverter?
  • #3 Why would you not monitor your solar power?

For more detailed information on what you will see online for both your electricity consumption and generated solar power visit our ONLINE MONITORING SOLUTIONS page. On this page we introduce you to the features and benefits of the excellent PVOutput solar power monitoring web portal.

On Grid / Off Grid Solar Power Analysis

For on-grid / off-grid solar power analysis, you can imagine any software is going to have to be quite detailed to give you all of the information you require. One such application is the CC128 Professor, described on our Current Cost monitor SOFTWARE page for electricity consumption analysis.

CC128 Professor Solar Power Data Logger SoftwareThis powerful solar power data logger is able to display whatever data you wish to see. And we say this because you are going to have a lot of circuits and maths to create your own personalised solar data logger.

Using each clamp as a separate circuit means technically you have access up to thirty circuits to monitor. On top of that there are twenty maths channels where you can subtract and add data.

Easily see the imported / exported electricity and the daily kWh and cost for each appliance.

The software is required to be on 24/7 to generate historical data and does not use the historical data within the monitor itself. Click on the image to enlarge.

CONTACT US for access to the software HERE.



Need More Technical Information?


See our SOLAR POWER page for a fully detailed explanation of how ELECTRICITY OFFSETTING works, in a Net FIT environment.

Install an electricity monitor in your home before you install Solar PV connected to a net meter. This will 100% make sure any suggested Solar PV system size is the correct size, to offset your sunny hour electricity costs only and not send unused electricity to the grid for little return.

All of this is explained in detail on our NET FIT METERING page.

CONTACT US and speak to one of our friendly team, where we will help you with answers.
