Solar Energy Production - August 2012

Enphase Energy logoHere is the energy production report from our Enphase Energy monitoring system in the month of August, 2012.  This is the electricity that our house's solar photovoltaic (PV) panels produced in August; the panels are connected to devices that monitor energy production from each panel, and send telemetry data to a little device inside our house.  That device reports the data to the Enphase Energy website, and Enphase sends us a monthly report.

One thing about this way of collecting data that is both cool and annoying: the cool part is that the Enphase inverters report data over the regular AC power system in the house.  That means the reporting device inside our house just plugs into any AC outlet, and it "finds" the inverters.  The annoying part is in how fragile that method of transmitting data is: you can't plug the reporting device into a power strip or anything else that conditions your AC power, because conditioning the AC power also removes the data that was transmitted via the AC current.  So, you have to be careful about choosing where to plug your Enphase reporting device.  I was not careful at the end of the month when I moved our device, and ended up plugging it into an outlet that has current-conditioning capabilities.  I need to find a better place to plug in.

That brings me to a comment about the August report: since I moved the reporting device and didn't notice the results for a few days, this report isn't completely accurate.  The last week's production is under-reported.  In other words, we produced more energy than the report says we did.

Okay, here's the monthly report.

I have read your post and got some idea about the solar energy production. Since consumption of energy is increasing day by day, we have to find out some solution to conserve energy. Hope this project will be effective. Please update more details about it. prefab tiny house


I think the energy control board as well as the authorities has to keep a close eye on the selection and the production of energy through renewable sources. Solar energy stands as the primary choice and we should consider the issue more seriously. room addition contractor

This report seems to be very good with increase in solar energy production. This increase will give lot of boost and encouragement to the company to increase their production to other level and see that all the houses get solar energy and stop the thermal energy as per rushmyessays co uk articles. This will help the reducing in pollution and makes environment fresh.
