Keep Track of Your Energy Generation

Once your new solar system is installed, it’s easy to ignore it and expect it to do all the work. And generally, it does. But maybe you’ve noticed that your solar power system doesn’t seem to be delivering on the benefits you expected, or your electricity bill is still on the high side. 

It could be that your system is underperforming or that you’re not using it efficiently, but how can you get to the root of the problem? Although all solar panel systems come with a power generation meter, it is not the most useful for monitoring your energy usage. 

There’s no need to shoot in the dark any longer! With the addition of a solar monitoring system, you can ensure you are using your system to its full capacity. 

At Nepean Solar Solutions, we offer two comprehensive solar monitoring systems, each providing unique benefits to the client.

Solar Analytics

A Solar Smart Monitor connects to your solar power system through the meter board. Once installed, you will have access to the Solar Analytics dashboard. You can either use it on a downloadable app or the web portal with a user-friendly data display.

Reposit

Reposit is a similar solution, which extends to monitoring your solar storage battery as well. It ensures that your home, battery and solar panels work in partnership to lower your electricity bill.

By learning, adapting and predicting your energy usage, it can negotiate extra savings on your behalf. Reposit is unique in that it is connected to the energy market and will sell surplus electricity back to the grid during peak times, when prices are highest. It can even make the wise decision to top up your battery when grid electricity is cheap, as a back up for a rainy day, for example.

By using Reposit, you can cut your return on investment time by up to half.

How Does it Work?

Reposit combines your solar power generation, house load and battery information with energy market data to give you:

  • Energy consumption and usage monitoring
  • Overview of your electricity costs
  • Intelligently buys and sells power on your behalf
  • Alerts on how to further reduce the power bill

Benefits of a Solar Monitoring System

A solar monitoring system will give you full visibility into your energy production and usage patterns.

Live Energy Generation Tracking

Solar monitoring dashboard data is updated every 5 seconds, allowing you to see your energy generation in real-time. If you would prefer to see trends over time, you can view these in simple infographic form for the specified time frame.

Alerts to Malfunctions

If your system is displaying an error or underperforming, your solar monitoring app will immediately notify you, saving you unwelcome surprises on your next electricity bill. It also tells you exactly where the problem is coming from.

Peace of Mind 

Most solar monitoring systems come with a warranty (but this varies according to the brand), so you can rest assured that the system is working at optimum efficiency and safety.

24/7 Monitoring

Nepean Solar Solutions will monitor your usage 24/7, to help you avoid bill shock. In the unlikely event of a system error, we can quickly troubleshoot the system without the need to come to you, resulting in less downtime so you can get back to your savings.

Maximise Savings

A solar monitoring system evaluates your energy generation and consumption to ensure that you maximise your solar system and/or batteries. The more you understand your energy production and consumption, the better you can manage it and use it efficiently.

Appliances such as washing machines, pool filters and ducted air-conditioning, use up a lot of power. If you’re used to turning these on at night after you come back from work, then you will be buying that electricity from the grid. Solar monitoring systems cleverly advise you on the best times to use those energy-hungry appliances, allowing you to further cut costs. 

With a bit of forward planning, you can easily schedule your household appliances to come on at set times throughout the day. By slowly using energy throughout the day, rather than all at once, you can rely less and less on the grid. 

At Nepean Solar Solutions, we recommend that clients install a solar monitoring system in order to get the most out of their investment.
