Is a second smart meter necessary?

I'm installing solar panels next week and the installation company has suggested that I add a Fronius Smart Meter to accompany the Fronius inverter they will install. I already have an Energex-supplied smart meter (EDMI Atlas MK7C). I'm wondering would this be overkill given that AGL offers an online meter readings? I assume the Fronius smart meter will provide more detailed info and some initial fun but I don't know if it's worth investing $300. Could someone tell me what info is provided about my electricity use and production on AGL's online interface and if you find this sufficient? Thanks.
