Re: Typical Solar production vs usage pattern

Chris24 said - 25/1 graph states solar generation 23.98.  My reading 30kw 

 

At a guess your solar system produced 30kWh but of that 6kwH was used consumed by you so the net meter registers the 23kW that was exported  (generated - used). On 26/1 your usage was greater (perhaps because your weekend usage is greater)

 

My system's overview reports the following (for 25/1) :-

 

  • 49.8 kilowatt-hours produced (not seen/known by AGL)
  • Approximately 27 kWh exported to grid (what AGL get to see)
 
  • 37.8 kilowatt-hours consumed (not seen/known by AGL)
  • Approximately 15 kWh imported from grid (what AGL get to see)
 
AGL Usage for 25/1 shows :-
  • 15.18 consumed (aka imported from grid) and
  • 26.99 generated (exported to the grid)
 As you can see it pretty accurate and I've recorded/compared both for a number of weeks now and can confirm that it appears to be as accurate throughout.
note :- not all systems will show consumption/usage

Cant understand why graph on my account 22nd feb indicates I bought back 80,kw from grid when all I used was ceiling fan whilst asleep and fridge on. Solar produced close to 20kw that day. No way I used 80kw midnight to 7am - or at any other time during day. Was out part of it and only used ceiling fan and fridge on. Ive never consumed that much energy on any day or night. 

Thank you. 

Solar production, buy back graph on my account

On my account graph, I was charged for 20kw buy back from grid and produced over 18.6kw 24th feb. I wasnt home at all , only had fridge running. Everything else turned off at wall. So I fail to see why I have 20kw buy back from grid.

I notice credit on total has stopped being added to and just credited to useage credit  amount which is the tiny amount $ I dont understand.

Is amount shown in amount due an accumulative amount?? 

Thank you.

Kind regards

10th march 2019, my solar produced 28.3kw, yet no solar to grid recorded on graph on my account and would cover energy used.

Dont understand how 20kw could be used when only ceiling fan and fridge operating of a night when asleep.

Thank you.

Why is it that the graph on my account isnt consistent with indication of solar fed into grid? My system produces every day, yet the graph doesnt show solar fed into grid,no matter kw fed into grid abd aware it will make difference to my bill. Bill anticipate will be accurate and not an estimate. . I have an,app that reads solar fed into grid which I check on daily basis and make note of it.

Its very frustrating and annoying the update and indication of solar fed into grid isn't always shown.  I understand the graph is always a day behind.  

Can you advise please?

 

Thank you.  Much appreciated.

Hi Chris24,

 

Thank you for your post.

 

I'll ask that you send me a quick private message by clicking on my handle (jaydeny) with screenshots of these discrepancies and your AGL account number so that I can lend a hand.
