Solar Monitoring

solar monitoring


Installation of a solar power system isn’t simply ‘set-and-forget’.

It is very important to keep an eye on how much energy is being collected and fed into the system, so the home owner can understand their electricity usage, and how much their solar power system
contributes to it. Understanding electricity usage is essential for getting the most out of your solar PV system, and Traralgon Plumbing & Solar can help you monitor and assess how best to maximise your collected power and when best to use it.

Solar monitoring is easy to set up and can be viewed via an app on your smartphone or tablet. Data is typically updated in real time and takes into the account the following:

  • comparison of energy production with actual output;
  • the make and model of your panels and inverter;
  • kilowatt rating of system;
  • age of the system;
  • orientation of each solar panel in your solar system; and
  • local weather conditions.

Solar monitoring can save you problems ahead of time by notifying you if there’s an issue (like your system underperforming). Your home solar power system should make the most of the sunshine, and a finely-tuned solar monitoring system will help you do this. Talk to Traralgon Plumbing & Solar about your options today.
