Good to know.

Most likely! Your incoming solar feed must connect directly into your main electrical panel, either through a breaker or a service-side tap.

If solar is set up in a subpanel, the incoming solar feed should be within 46″ of the main panel. This will allow the current sensor cable to reach and connect to the Sense monitor in the main electrical panel. Extension cables are available in lengths of 4′, 12′, 25′, and 40′ should your solar feed be further than 46″ from your main electrical panel. These extensions can be combined to achieve larger lengths, but the maximum length should be no more than 80′.

For accurate solar production readings, there should not be any other live circuits connected to the subpanel.

If you aren’t sure if your particular setup will work, contact our Support team.
Installing Sense Solar requires the additional steps of installing the second set of sensors around the solar feed supplying power through the electrical panel.

Sense Solar will work with off-grid solar systems (homes that are not tied to the utility and are powered only by another generation source like solar or wind) under the following conditions:

  • All of the power coming into the house is AC (alternating current).
  • Batteries are positioned upstream from the main panel.
  • Other standard system requirements are met. 

If all the above are true, it should look basically exactly like a traditional Sense setup. Solar CTs should not be required because the solar panels are the only power source. f all the above are true, it should look basically exactly like a traditional Sense setup. Solar CTs should not be required because the solar panels are the only power source.
The Solar screen of the Sense app (available if you have Sense Solar) shows five primary usage stats. Solar stats can be accessed by double-tapping the Solar bubble, tapping the solar production icon, or accessing the Solar card via the Trends screen.

Usage
Your total, whole-home consumption for the period selected. The given cost is based on your billing rate, if provided.

Production
Your total solar production for the period selected. The given cost is based on your billing rate, if provided.

To Grid
Your excess solar production sent to the grid. The given cost is calculated based on your sellback rate. You can set this in the Solar Settings screen.

From Grid
Your usage pulled from the grid and not covered by solar. The given cost is based on your billing rate, if provided. Powered by Solar The % Powered by Solar number refers to the amount of consumption that is being drawn from solar, relative to total consumption.

For example, if you consume 10kWh in the same period that you produced 10kWh of solar, you would be 100% powered by solar.

However, if you produced 10kWh during the daylight hours and consumed 5kWh during these hours plus another 5kWh at night (a total consumption of 10kWh for the day), only 5kWh would actually be covered by your solar production. The other 5kWh produced would be sent back to the grid as excess production. You would be 50% Powered By Solar for that day.

Yes, you can add solar sensors to your existing Sense Monitor for $50.

Before you purchase, check to see if Sense will work with your solar panels.

If you aren’t sure if your particular solar setup will work with the Sense Monitor, please contact our Support team.
