I want to start tracking my electrical demands in the Octopus Agile emoncms App to see if it will be cheaper for me to switch to Agile or not.
Am I best at tracking real time info or pulling data historically through the Octopus API?
I am feeding real time data into an Influx Database through Home-Assistant from my SolaX Inverter. This comes from a ModBus SDM230 Energy Meter Directly attached to the Inver and the readings from the Inverter itself.
As I have battery storage as well I don’t know how relevant the PV Power is by itself.
I have the following data points:
(These are real time updated per second)
PV Toal Power (Just a simple add the two together)
Battery Power (Positive = Battery Charging, Negative = Battery Discharging)
Measured Power (Positive = Export to Grid, Negative = Pulling from Grid)
I also have Imported Grid Power from previous day. Due to limitation on Octopus API.
How am I best formatting this data into the required fields for the app? As I really don’t know where to start with emoncms.
I have emon running locally on a PI as I can’t get a docker version to work. I don’t have any CT clamps attached to the PI.
