Solar power is a fantastic long-term investment that can help you substantially cut your greenhouse emissions and electricity bills. In order to ensure you get the greatest efficiency out of your system we strongly recommend that you monitor it regularly. A major part of this involves checking your inverter.
Use this guide to get started!
If you have an APS system, you need to first access the ECU Monitor.
The figure above which is followed by kWh refers to the accumulative total of kilowatt hours your system has produced since it was installed.
To obtain your daily production, you simply need to record this figure first thing in the morning and then again later in the day. The difference in the figures will indicate the daily production of your system.
January 21st, 8am: 100kWh
January 21st, 6pm: 110kWh
Therefore your daily production is 10kWh (110 less 100)
To calculate your average monthly production, record this figure at the start and end of each month and then divide the difference by the number of days in between.
E-Total on 1st January is 1100
E-Total on 1st February is 1300
January’s Monthly Yield is therefore 200 units (1300 less 1100)
January’s Average Daily Yield is therefore 6.45kWh (200 monthly yield divided by 31 days in January)
To ensure that your solar power system is working normally, compare these figures with those provided in the Solargain Customer User Manual.
You will have received this in a black handover folder on the day of installation. If you cannot find this manual, please call Solargain on 1300 73 93 55 and we will arrange to send a new one to you.
