I just went outside to check the values on my utility’s meter and compare those with the values I see on PVOutput.
The values of my meter, since the last reading, are the following: 166 kWh export, 164 kWh import, 3 kWh net (probably a rounding factor)
The values on PVOutput for the same period (using customized monthly view, using Nov 6 as start date since that was the day my meter was read last) showed 166 kWh export, 156 kWh import, 10 kWh net.
It seems that over the past 16 days there is a small discrepancy of about 7-8 kWh between what my utility says I imported, and what PVOutput calculated for import based on my generation and consumption, but I am not entirely sure why this is.
It seems to me that if the export is the same at both utility meter and on PVOutput for the same period, shouldn’t the import then also be the same, seeing as the export is calculated based on my generation and consumption?
It’s not a biggie, but I am trying to understand it nonetheless
Does anyone have any insight in this?
