Not to be confused with the ‘Smart meter’ the electricity company uses to charge your electricity bill, the Fronius smart meter is much more advanced.
Most solar systems will now tell you what the solar is producing via an online platform. But with a Fronius smart meter, you be able to see what electricity you are consuming as well as producing, all in real-time! This is great for knowing when to put the kettle on for free.
The data from the smart meter is pulled into the easy to use Solar.Web monitoring platform. From here you can view all your past consumption and production data.
If your not ready for a battery just yet, this will be priceless down the track. As you will know exactly how much spare energy you have and when. Making it easy to know which battery size will suit you best.
There’s more…this meter also has 4x programable outputs, which can be used to control loads/appliances in your house. For example, you could switch on your pool pump or hot water, only when you have spare solar energy. Drastically reducing the amount of energy used from the grid.
