Hello, so my panel system is up and running. Tesla covered the basics quite well:
* Panels are producing well.
* Cost per watt was good.
* Happy with the panels and the installation, no leaks AFAICT.
* Neo Gateway was not communicating at first but they did some remote management stuff and now it works.
So the system is running. The monitoring is very rudimentary though.
The inverter is a SolarEdge unit with Power Optimizers on each module. However, the inverter that was installed has no screen on it, so I can't access any of the data that the SolarEdge unit is collecting. I really want the per-module data so I can see how the various panels are performing. This will inform decisions on reorganizing the layout (whenever I replace the roof) or figuring out where to focus my tree trimming and measuring any results.
The Tesla app just gives a very basic graphic showing overall generation and consumption.
So... what to do? Does anyone know if there is an API that is available to get more data?
