TIGO Data

Post by jbakker »

Here is a screenshot of the TIGO data collected yesterday. Excellent day for solar. The angle of my panels and the position of the sun now are near perfect for amazing production. The temperature here was around 4 or 5 C.
I was seeing 5.1 Kw out of 5.2 kW total of panels.

You can see a very defined cliff. This is where the charge controllers are seeing the battery is pretty much 100 percent and throttle back the charge. Around 4 you can see the production go back up, Everybody is home from school and work and I plugged the car in.

Just thought I would share the data.

Good day here as well. 17.8kwh from my 3.2kw system, 900wh of which reclaimed due to optimizers.

That's an impressive one-day total. The equivalent of nearly 6 hours at full 3.2kW output!

Thanks. Jeff's was even better, and if he weren't constrained by being off grid he could've made more and sold it to grid. Gotta say I'm impressed when an off-gridder can charge his EV as well.

I often wonder how much energy we leave "on the roof" each day. Certainly enough to charge a small vehicle with the amount of driving we put on the 2nd car.

I'd love to get an all-electric truck, but that would take investing in a separate charging infrastructure. We have a perfect spot for a solar-roofed car port, but the Domestic Goddess objects to its potential for spoiling the view. I have to continue the plan to landscape the area in order to create a screen for such an edifice. Innovation is never easy.

I could sell back to the Grid if did the paperwork with the Utility Company. I have an issue as they will not pay me a delivery fee, I mean it's not an unreasonable request, is it? I have to maintain my system, replace parts, etc.


Just kidding. I am thinking about Net Metering but not sure yet. I still want to upgrade my inverters to new units but that's a plan for another year as I just bought the PHEV. I am liking it a lot for my daily driving needs to work, around town it is great.
I am thinking of switching the AC to the solar system as well, have to figure out a way to have it switch to solar when the battery is full and back to the grid at say 60 percent battery left. Any ideas on how to do that?
Thinking about installing a Level 2 charger for the car as well. Since the car charger is a max of 3.3kw I would not need a 50 Amp LV2 unit but could get away with a 32 Amp unit. I will have to watch my power budget with that running and the AC. Lots of ideas.
Little funds LOL.

If i ever get down to Ohio again I would look you up Mike:)
