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

Updated 2019-12-05 21:17 GMT.
High-frequency (per-minute) grid-tied generation stats for 16WW roof-mounted 5.16kWp solar PV.
solar PV panels on roof
1-minute power generation logs via the Sunny Beam wireless receiver for the (now) four Sunny Boy PV grid-tie inverters of the solar system on the 16WW roof.

The Sunny Beam receives generation levels from the inverters in the loft by radio. The Sunny Beam 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 energy.
