We're starting to get data from our solar panels! Not only are we learning about power generation, but also power *consumption*! Even in the fall we're generating far more than we need. We can use these data for decision-making, like, what electric heating system we should use, or whether we can power an electric car!
@Argus that’s cool, do you have any plans of adding a battery as well? And can you store the data in something a bit more open so you can visualize it in grafana?
@kamme We'd love a battery but will probably need to wait a few years to afford it (they are currently about $8k).
Yes, you can download generation data from the panel producer's website.
