What does the Dashboard tell me?
The intuitive user Dashboard is your roadmap to savings. Monitor production - how much solar energy your system is producing - vs. consumption - how much energy your household is using - by day, week, or month. The chart makes it easy to see variations, track averages, and monitor the efficiency of your solar energy system. Note: Consumption data is only available for customers using CURB monitoring.
How do I view and monitor my production and consumption data?
The intuitive energy production and consumption dashboard allow you to monitor your system performance and energy consumption in Kilowatts (kWh) by day, week, or month. Your Dashboard automatically displays production and consumption data for the current “DAY” when you log in. You can also view by week or month by selecting “WEEK” or “MONTH”. Daily averages are noted so you can monitor production and consumption across time. Note: Consumption data is only available for customers using CURB monitoring.
Why can’t I see consumption?
Some of the early solar energy systems are not equipped with the hardware necessary to view consumption. We are actively looking for a solution that would make this viewing possible for those systems moving forward but, for now, consumption data is only available for customers using CURB monitoring.
Why do I see an “Error Loading Data” message?
Your inverter key is likely missing. Please contact the Support team to get it added.
What factors impact my solar energy production?
Your custom solar energy solution is designed to optimize production relative to the energy needs of your household and the pitch, size, and orientation of your roof. Once installed, you'll see variations in production based largely on daylight, weather, and season. Clouds, shade, or extreme weather can block sunlight from reaching your solar panels and result in a slight decrease in production. Energy production will be highest when direct sunlight falls on your solar panels. This can happen at different times of the day depending on the pitch and orientation of your roof. In the United States, the sun is low in the winter and high in the summer. As the angle of the sun changes relative to the angle of your solar panels, you’ll likely see seasonal variations in production.
Why is the weather included in the App?
Weather can have a significant impact on production, so it's important to consider when evaluating the health of your solar energy system. For example, heavy rain may decrease production while cool days with clear skies will likely show an increase in production. While solar panels function best with direct, full sunlight, they are designed to withstand wind, snow, hail, and heat, and will continue to produce power in indirect light.
How do I view the weather?
You can view the weather directly from your Dashboard. Today’s weather will appear in a black box covering the chart while icons along the bottom of the chart show historic data and forecast rain, snow, clouds, or partly sunny for the days ahead.
Can I view solar production in dollars instead of Kilowatts so I can compare it to my utility bill?
Not at this time. Because electricity costs vary widely based on location, utility company, and rate calculations (flat fee vs. variable rates), it is difficult to provide an accurate comparison between Kilowatt production and dollars saved. That said, we are exploring ways to accurately provide this information.
What is the “Refer a Friend” program and how can I access it?
