Solar Generation Data

Transformer

I have a 4kW solar panel system with a Solis/Ginlong inverter. I get nice graphs of the power generated from the panels at https://m.ginlong.com and I can download CSV files from https://myaccount.agl.com.au/usage that give me our consumption (from the grid) and feed in (from the panels to the grid) in 30 min blocks (see below).

The problem is that it is not easy to put the two things together. Does anyone know of a way to get the Solis/Ginlong data in a CSV file (or similar)?

BTW I am aware of this: https://github.com/graham0/ginlong-wifi but I'm not sure it I'm game to try it.

 

EDIT: The information on this link is out-of-date and should be ignored. See my next post on how to get the data.

I've figured it out.

 

If you are interested, log on to https://m.ginlong.com and click on the "Details" tab. Your inverter should listed there. Click anywhere on the row that has the details about your inverter (except the "Delete" button).

You will get a whole lot of extra information about your inverter. If you then click on the "Export detailed data" button, you'll download a spreadsheet with everything you could possibly want about the inverter and what it's getting from the panels. (I'm still trying to figure out what it all means).

Please yourself. (I was inclined to leave it as a warning to not use it).
