Re: Typical Solar production vs usage pattern

Am new here. I have 5.5kw system, have up to production 30kw which isnt even shown on my dashboard - not happy! Inaccurate info kw shown. 23rd 29kw produced, 24th 21st kw.25th 30kw produced by panels.Using about - 10, not much yesterday but frustrated as 30kw produced but not shown at all, so display of useage for me extremely inaccurate, not good and very unhappy. How does agl explain that??
