Re: Negative Prices

Hi Jayden, Thanks for the response but that did quite answer my question. When I generate surplus power in the middle of the day that AGL sells back to the grid, I realise that AGL payment me a pre-agreed tariff however what happens when the actual price is less than this tariff or even negative? AGL presumably won't be selling power at negative prices. I saw that some of the commercial scale renewable companies actually get switched off (which protects them from selling power at negative prices ...

How can this be possible. It also says I am selling loads of power to the grid (for a pittance) but why should I still be drawing power from the grid? Also I have both T11 and T33. Shou ...

Re: Power consumption with a smart meter

Hi Jayden, No I can see from my Fronius Inverter analytics how much solar I am generating however I wanted to also know what my actual power consumption is as well. I didn't think my inverter would tell me this. For the last couple of years I have used a power monitor that an electrician installed to measure my power consumption. It would simply measure actual consumption at any moment and hence I could see when my power consumption spiked in the evenings etc. When AGL replaced my existing smart ...
