- Feed in Solar Panal Meter reading – How?
I’ve done a few installs of these, IME the meter with the heavy duty cables going into it will be the SSE mains one and the one with the smaller cables will be the solar PV meter.Posted 4 years ago
From your SSE main cutout/fuse the cables should go into the meter then from there to an isolator switch then into your distribution board.
They should only need the Kwh readings from both of the meters.
Moved in some months ago, previous owner simply pointed at the meter and said that’s it.
It’s been a very slow process getting SSE to accept me as the new owner but that’s now sorted. Sent my first meter reading back and they said it’s all wrong. Any guidance on how to read the meter(s)?
It’s SSE. In the cupboard are two meters, no idea which one is the electricty meter and which one is the feed in meter, they both look pretty similar to me. Both are digital and both have multiple readouts that I can cycle through. There’s also a meter on the inverter in the attaic, no idea if that’s needed.
Any ideas? ta.Posted 4 years ago
Just got back to this, thanks.
Steve, the meters are above one another. 😉
The top meter (which I’m almost certain is the generation meter – it has a red light which comes on at night), has three readings, usefully set as 0,1 and 2 with the sum of 1 and 2 equalling the 0 figure.
The bottom meter has a t and r reading.
Still no idea which ones the company wants so I’ve sent them all.Posted 4 years agoSmudger666Subscriber
Post a photo and I’ll tell you which is which.
Alternatively, start at the inverter, and follow the cable back to the fuse board – the PV meter will be between the inverter and the fusboard.
Also, if you googled ‘PV system schematic’ they all show this arrangement so you should see one that makes sense.
