Solar Power Monitoring Solutions


This page relates to ALL of our electricity monitoring solutions, suitable for the monitoring of:

  • Total household electricity consumption
  • Solar power connected via a gross / net meter


Choosing An Aussie Home Energy Monitoring Solution




What Kind Of Feed In Tariff Are You Connected To?

This is important as this will affect your choice of suitable monitoring options. By suitable we mean a monitoring solution that will give you ALL of the information you NEED! Soo you are in a position to understand 100% what is going on with your generation and consumption.

If you are not going to understand 100% what is going on, then why install monitoring? Some monitoring systems out there, simply do not give you the information you need!

If we know what you have, then we can steer you in the correct direction for the best solution.


    What kind of Feed In Tariff [FIT] are you connected to Gross or Net?

    Gross FIT : Consumption = Import  &  Generation = Export


    Net FIT : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export



Aussie Householders Confused Over Net Metered Solar Systems

We know the average Aussie householder does not always fully understand the Net FIT / metering. We know this after much discussion with clients where we explain what really happens.

If householders did fully understand Net FIT, then why do we still see householders installing a 3kW solar power system, when they are at work all day [during the sunny hours], with only have a fridge plus a few other appliances operating in the home? Of course expecting a big financial return!

NO WAY! You have just exported your solar power investment!

In NSW where 1kW of power exported is only going to return an average of $85 per year, WHY WHY WHY?

If this sounds like your home? Well ALL IS NOT LOST as there is still a way to maximise the return as best as possible after the event.

Meaning you need to install consumption and solar generation monitoring, so you can start saving fast!


      BEFORE SOLAR : Consumption = Imported Power

      AFTER SOLAR : Consumption = Generation + Import - Export


We know you are not going to do the maths on this one, so make it easy on yourself and install a monitoring system to start saving and seeing the ROI for your Solar PV!



Electricity Billing At Error With Net FIT

Incorrect Net Metered Electricity BillThere is one question any Aussie householder will find it hard to answer after installing a Net FIT solar power system and this is:

Is my home now consuming more or less power?


Now with ONLY imported power and exported power on your electricity bill, you are still minus the information needed to know what is going on. And even if you are out checking and recording your solar pv inverter's output on a daily basis, we tend to think you are not sitting down and doing the maths 24/7!

What is still incorrect on the electricity bill of many Net FIT households is the fact the Daily kWh usage NOW reflects IMPORTED POWER! NOT the total power consumed as stated still on th bill!

By installing an electricity consumption and solar power generation monitor you can sit back and make educated decisions based on the data.

Such educated decisions as :

  • Knowing how to reduce imported power
  • Knowing how and when to use your generated power
  • Knowing what appliances use most of your power


Once you learn how to offset electricity costs with your solar power, you will maximise your return on your Net FIT Solar Power investment! Simple.....

Understand 100% Your Solar Power Investment & Your Electricity Consumption



Worldwide Online Electricity Monitoring Setup ServiceWorldwide Solar Power / Consumption Online Monitoring Setup Service

We can add your solar power data easily to PVOutput if you so wish. You may already have the solar power inverters data on PVOutput and yet have no consumption data allowing you to know when you are importing or exporting which is crucial in a net metered environment.

We can offer you this service when:


  • You purchase one of our Electricity Monitoring Systems which has the data online
  • You want to connect your existing compatible electricity monitoring system to PVOutput
  • You already have your solar inverters data via blue tooth / wifi on PVOutput and are looking for the consumption data, to compute import / export

If you are short of the time or the expertise needed, to get this web portal up and running, visit our SERVICES page for more information, where we simply remove the pain and hassle of the process for you, no matter where you live on this planet!



Cost Effective Monitoring Systems Which Are Plug N Play

Your Online Energy Monitoring Dashboard SolutionAussie Home Energy is offering you great Solar PV net monitoring solutions, based on solid reliable and proven hardware / software platforms. We have been offering solar power and consumption monitoring solutions for over five years now and choose to configure your system by default as it removes problem issues.

Our fully configured online power monitoring options HERE are matched 100% to each clients needs. This is our most popular monitoring option as it removes:

  • Issues with monitoring system configuration
  • Technical aptitude issues or a lack of understanding
  • Being short of time


IMPORTANTLY our proven system allows you to fully test the system at installation time, before any electrician leaves your home, as a revisit could be costly!




So What Makes Our Solar Monitoring Solutions No #1?

In Home Display Solar Power & Consumption To be honest a lot of our Solar PV Monitoring clients, are also our HOME ELECTRICITY REDUCTION AUDIT clients. Solar PV installation and monitoring is just another logical step in the home electricity reduction process.

The solutions offered up to September 2014 had all been based on the same monitoring hardware. After seeing many exciting improvements, design incentives, hardware and software features across other platforms, it only seems logical to add these to our arsenal of Solar Power Monitoring Solutions.

We back our Solar PV Monitoring Solutions with excellent support and also go one step further, to enhance the product with additional features where possible.

We will do our best to make sure you have all the information you need, from your Solar PV Monitoring System. Information that can be:


  • In Your Face
  • On Your Laptop
  • On Your Mobile



Choose $85 Or $425 For Your Solar Power

Easily See Your Imported & Exported Power : Nobody wants to export their solar pv investment! Currently in NSW net metering means, exported power is worth little. For example 4 to 6 cents per kWh is not going to make you rich!

That means each kWh of your solar power exported over the year when averaged [in NSW] is only going to give you a small financial return of $85 [based on 6 cents]!

Now that same 1 kWh of power could be worth $425 when used to offset imported power costs [based on 30 cents per kWh]!

So can you now see why you need Instant Home Energy Monitoring feedback?

What Kind Of Monitoring Solution Are You Looking For?

Interestingly there are quite a few options now, as we have solutions that encompass more than one hardware platform. Whilst all options will be good for Gross FIT not all calculate the maths for Net FIT.

It is this Net FIT connection becoming more popular in Australia as States move away from the Gross FIT, where cheaper monitoring systems FAIL to give you ALL the information needed. Without that information, there is no point in installing a monitoring system.

So if you are looking for:


    LCD Monitoring Of Solar AND / OR Consumption

  • Monitor solar and / or consumption
  • Optional PC / MAC software
  • Optional online energy monitoring dashboard for up to 5 circuits
  • Go HERE Software and optional online dashboards DO NOT currently calculate all of the following information for Net FIT connections. Best for Gross FIT where you will see:

    Consumption = Import     &     Generation = Export


    Online Dashboard Via Browser, Tablet, Mobile App

  • Monitor solar and / or consumption
  • Optional online dashboard for max 5 circuits
  • Go HERE Dashboard support Gross / Net FIT where you will see:

    Consumption = Generation + Import - Export

    Note: Data will be on the manufacturer and PVOutput dashboards. We configure the hardware and dashboard for you, [as complex] so you simply login once installed. You can DIY if you like.


    Solar Inverter Already On PVOutput? You Need Consumption Data?

  • Inverter is already on PVOutput and you wish to add consumption
  • Go HERE Dashboard support Gross / Net FIT where you will see:

  • Consumption = Generation + Import - Export

  • #2 When was the last time you checked your solar power inverter?
  • #3 Why would you not monitor your solar power?
  • #4 How do you know if you are using more or less energy since installing solar power?

Need More Technical Information?

See our SOLAR POWER page for a fully detailed explanation of how ELECTRICITY OFFSETTING works, in a Net FIT environment.

Sizing A Solar Power System : Installing an electricity monitoring system in your home before you install Solar PV connected to a net meter, will help you size the system correctly. Making sure after installation your 'sunny hour' generated power is offsetting imported power costs only. Importantly not going back to the grid as unwanted excess power.

Sizing A Battery Bank : Your Solar Power Monitoring System will also supply you with the information needed for this task.

For more information see our NET FIT METERING page.
