Earth Notes: Grid-Tied Rooftop Solar PV Generation Stats via SunnyBeam

Updated 2019-09-26 08:08 GMT.
High-frequency (per-minute) grid-tied generation stats for 16WW roof-mounted 5.16kWp solar PV.
1-minute power generation logs via the SunnyBeam wireless receiver for the (now) four SunnyBoy PV grid-tie inverters on the 16WW roof.

The SunnyBeam receives generation levels from the inverters in the loft by radio. The SunnyBeam is plugged into the Raspberry Pi USB to power it and poll for stats every minute.

Periods of zero generation (after an initial 0 sample) are not recorded to save space and power.
