A solar monitoring system can keep you apprised of your PV system’s performance. It offers information about energy consumption and generation, optimizing energy usage, and whether there is damage to your solar system, among other topics. It’s important to monitor your solar setup in some manner – without monitoring, it can be difficult to figure out if your solar panels are operating at their best. With a monitoring system, you will be able to see if there have been any significant changes in performance. Most solar companies will set you up with a monitoring system that is connected to the inverter through proprietary software.
Currently, most are through apps that are available on most of your devices and can use cellular data on a mobile phone or tablet so that if a Wi-Fi connection is lost, your data is still available to you. In normal times, a Wi-Fi-connected computer can be used as well. While most solar panels are incredibly durable and require very little maintenance, other parts of the system may experience damage or issues. Monitoring the system periodically can keep it performing at its best.
