2022-11-12 at 17:16 #25955 Reply Philip GriffithsGuest I’ve had a newly installed solar panel system and battery using more kilo Watts than before the installation, how come? 2022-11-12 at 19:57 #25956 Reply StuartGuest Hi To conduct a rudimentary investigation, power off all your usual (pre-install) appliances in the house and see what level of consumption your battery, inverter and generation meters are consuming. If you’ve had a Smart Meter installed recently, I’m guessing it could be that! Get your installers back to investigate, if this doesn’t satisfy your curiosity. Hope this helps.
