Newbie what do In need to order?

I have a 10KW PV system and I wish to install a PV and energy monitoring system that will display both on my Windows PC. I would like WIFI to the PC. and from the mains/solar sensors. I would also like to automatically switch the excess power to some 13A sockets.

Can one of you clever people help please.

Hello Alfie

You can achieve the monitoring part with an EmonPi/EmonTx based monitor, the guide gives a good overview here: System Overview - Guide | OpenEnergyMonitor

There is also the solar PV application page here: Solar PV - Guide | OpenEnergyMonitor

For controling 13A sockets, the EmonPi has a piece of software installed called NodeRed which is a more advanced topic, covered a little here:
