Monitoring – a vital part of your solar system!
When we provide a quote for going solar, we often get asked what sets us apart from other solar companies. We always endeavor to answer this honestly with complete transparency. We are not going to provide you with a solar system installed by cutting corners. We pride ourselves on designing a system completely tailored to the client’s needs, with high quality equipment that stands the test of time. Not only that but our ‘aftercare’ process is thorough, so that the client can be assured the sale doesn’t stop at the point of installation.
The best way to know that you’re utilizing your solar production as efficiently as possible, is to have comprehensive monitoring installed at the same time as your installation. We believe the monitoring we provide with your solar system, is a vital piece of equipment to help you assess if you’re indeed maximizing on your production.
So how does it work? Well, we configure everything at our end and all you must do is download the app, set up your login details and you’re away laughing! Simple as that. Essentially it is a live data feed of what your solar is doing at all times of the day. You can view your production, consumption and what you’re exporting back to the grid as well as what you are importing from the grid. We also have access to all our customers monitoring, so we often jump on to ensure everything is working as it should.
If you notice that you’re often using power outside of the solar generation timeframes, you can adjust your habits accordingly. Or if you are wanting to get a substantial number of appliances running at once, you can jump on and ensure your solar is producing enough to power them without the grid having to top you up.
If you were to call us in the future wanting to add more panels or batteries to your system, we would be able to easily figure out how many more panels and batteries you would require by looking into your monitoring.
As you can see, the monitoring really is a vital part of your solar system! It is an informative tool to depict whether you are getting the most out of your production and it future-proofs you as well. We love it and we know you will too, thank goodness for technology!
