How to calculate your solar savings with a Fronius smart meter.


In the last video blog, Kellee showed that you can not work out your solar savings by looking on your electricity bill. Fat lot of good that is. This video is a little more helpful, it shows you how to work out your savings – if you have a Fronius inverter and a Fronius smart meter.

Fronius Solar.Web – it’s easy

Fronius’ online monitoring platform After we install Fronius solar systems, our electrician will connect your inverter to your home Wifi, and send relevant details to our office. Kaitlin then will set up your basic details on Solar.web, add a photo of your job, and register your 10-year warranty. She then sends an email to you with your log in details. Then you just need to log in and explore. Whenever you call us up, we’ll also be able to log in and see how your system is performing. We’re always keen to help you use your system better! This video shows one of the most common aspects of solar.web that we explain to customers : solar savings.

Actual solar savings

One of the coolest features of Fronius’ online monitoring platform using the Fronius Smart Meter is the Tariff settings. You can enter in how much you are charged for electricity, and how much you get for your feed in tariff. Once this is done, you can workout simply, and with a high level of accuracy, your solar savings month by month and year by year. As your electricity prices increase (power prices always go up on July 1) you can add that new information in your tariff settings (with the date of the increase), and you will keep all of your historical data. It makes working out your actual return on investment easy and accurate!

Watch Kellee’s video above as she explains how to set up this function.

Kellee’s next video will show how we can create a custom report to calculate your solar savings more accurately using custom date ranges to match your billing period.
