Data from anywhere

Solar Analytics can access data from a variety of sources.

Integrating directly with the inverter and consumption meter is the simplest way to connect with no additional hardware required. Currently available with Fronius and Sungrow inverters, and more brands on the way.

Our Solar Smart Monitor can be used on any solar system to provide a complete range of options and additional functionality.

All the data you need

Solar and consumption data combined gives you the complete view of your home’s energy profile. Real time data collected in up to 5 second intervals tells you what is going on right now, and circuit level monitoring provides even more detail into specific loads and appliances. Upload your most recent electricity bill to enable accurate savings calculations.
What does it do?

Using smart algorithms

We take the exact specifications of your system and match it to your local weather data to calculate the expected solar production for each day. Our patented True Performance algorithms compare what the system should have produced to the actual output. This enables automated diagnostics of faults, shading and other under-performance issues.

Why should you get a consumption meter?

Having a consumption meter means you can keep an eye on how much power you’re using (and when), and take advantage of load shifting i.e. using energy-hungry appliances when you’re producing your solar. Tracking your consumption patterns will also make it easier for you to decide when to invest in a battery

If you need to see live consumption data, a consumption meter (or CATCH Control/Wattwatchers hardware) may be your best option. If day-behind consumption data is okay, you may be able to access it via Integrated+. Find out more.

Note: Our CATCH Control and Wattwatcher integrated Classic solutions already collect consumption data via the connected hardware.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Solar Analytics cost?

keyboard_arrow_down

Solar Analytics’ subscription pricing can be found on our website here. You will need to know:
- The size of your system: above or below 15kW
- Your preferred payment plan (monthly, yearly, 5 or 10 years)

If you choose the CATCH Control integrated solution, your Solar Analytics subscription will be free.

I already have a solar system. Can I set up Solar Analytics myself?

keyboard_arrow_down

If your system uses a Sungrow, Fronius, GoodWe, GE Solar or LG inverter, you can trial Solar Analytics Integrated free for 30 days by signing up here. Note that your system needs to be equipped with a consumption meter to be able to access the full Solar Analytics experience. For any other system brands or set-ups, it is best to talk to a solar retailer who will be able to cater to your specific system requirements.

What if my system doesn’t include a consumption meter?

keyboard_arrow_down

Without energy consumption tracking, your Solar Analytics experience will be limited to performance monitoring only. You won’t be able to understand how to optimise your big energy loads, check your electricity bills or find a plan better suited to your needs. That’s why we strongly advise you to check your consumption status before activating Solar Analytics. If your consumption information is missing, consider adding a consumption meter to your system or installing the CATCH Control or Wattwatchers hardware.

Alternatively, if you live in Australia (ex-NT and WA) and have a Fronius, Sungrow, GoodWe, GE Solar or LG inverter, you may be able to get consumption data directly from your energy retailer with Integrated+.

My inverter doesn’t seem to be compatible with Solar Analytics Integrated. What should I do?

keyboard_arrow_down

Solar Analytics Integrated currently connects to Sungrow, Fronius, GoodWe, GE Solar and LG inverters. For any other inverter brand, you can choose to install the Wattwatchers smart monitoring device to access Solar Analytics via our CATCH Control or Wattwatcher integrated solutions, or keep an eye on our future releases. We are expecting to expand our compatible range of inverters and API connections over the coming months and will share new updates soon!

How can I get the CATCH Control or Wattwatcher integrated solutions?

keyboard_arrow_down

Both of these require hardware installation, which needs to be done by a qualified electrician, and ideally by an experienced solar installer. Even if you have the technical know-how, working in a switchboard has an elevated level of risk, and should only be done by a qualified electrician. They will know the correct model unit number for your home and the safest way to manage the installation.

Do I need a solar retailer or can any licensed electrician install a CATCH Control or Wattwatchers device?

keyboard_arrow_down

Any qualified electrician can install the CATCH Control or Wattwatchers hardware, however we always recommend that you work with an accredited solar retailer for all your solar installation and maintenance needs, who will have the right expertise to ensure that you get the best service.

My solar retailer hasn’t heard of Solar Analytics
