Consumption page is one of the most exciting pages on the Solar Analytics Dashboard where you can view the energy usage consumed by your site compared to how much solar energy has been generated by your solar system.
Overview of the Consumption Page:
Daily Production and Consumption
Yellow curve: represents the solar production in 5 minute intervals.
Purple curve: represents the energy consumption imported from the grid in 5 minute intervals.
Overlap of yellow and purple curves: represent the produced energy consumed on site.
The production and consumption data for a specific date can be selected from and icons.
Total Energy Daily Production and Consumption
Produced: total energy produced from your solar system in kWh per day.
Consumed: total energy consumed on site in kWh per day (i.e. energy imported from grid + solar consumed on site).
Date range can be selected by clicking onto the icon.
In this section, you can view the energy breakdown in kWh in the selected date range for:
- Solar consumed on site
- Energy imported from the grid
- Solar exported to the grid
Date range can be selected by clicking onto the icon located in .
Total consumption is the total energy consumed on site in kWh (i.e. energy import from grid + solar consumed on site) in the selected date range.
Savings is the total amount saved in $ in the selected date range .
Your savings is calculated by:
Savings = ( kWh consumed on site x your import tariff ) + ( kWh exported x the export tariff )
You can update your import and export tariffs by clicking on the icon in the Savings box.
Net spend in $ is displayed in the selected date range .
Your net spend is calculated by:
Net Spend = ( kWh imported from the grid x your import tariff ) - ( kWh exported to the grid x your export tariff )
You can update your import and export tariffs by clicking on the icon in the Net Spend box.
< PRO TIP >
If your import tariff is greater than your feed-in tariff, we recommend to consume as much solar energy on site as possible during production hours to maximise your savings.
