How do people deal with Controlled Loads (hot water) that are not uploaded to PVO as they are not metered by their own consumption monitor?
This is the missing part of the energy consumption and cost data in my PVO tracking.
I have my PV output and consumption data uploading to PVO, but controlled load is a separate circuit not monitored by my Fronius smart meter (and is not fed any solar PV).
In my own spreadsheets I enter in total daily energy consumption as reported by the retailer, and assume the difference between that and the consumption captured by the Fronius smart meter is the controlled load. Typically it averages ~5.5kWh/day (2 people, norther NSW, 250 litre indoor electric tank), bit more in winter, bit less in summer.
Is there perhaps a way to post-hoc upload the retailer data so a controlled load value can be calculated?
