i have an SMA5000 inverter which pushes data to sunpower unencrypted, so for a few years i’ve been using my own script to snarf and upload that data to PVO.
soon i will probably become a powerwall customer and i’m wondering if anyone else has made this transition. from reading around it seems like the powerwall itself will be able to figure out what the solar generation is and i suppose PVO can now understand what the current battery capacity is and how much energy the PW is using to power the house, etc. and compute the net consumption as it does now in the absence of storage.
again from reading it looks like the powerwall will be reporting cumulative numbers, which obviously will start from 0 after it is commissioned. what i’m wondering is if i should stop running my PVO script and just let the powerwall uploader do its thing… or if i should be running both, or what. seems like i could hack the powerwall script to add in the cumulative solar generation at the time the powerwall script takes over.
has anyone gone thru this process? how would i find systems on PVO that have storage so i can get familiar with how it all looks when it’s up and running?
