Wattson Solar has all the elements you need to measure your electricity generation as well as your energy consumption.
Wattson Solar Plus is the only monitor that shows how much power you are generating and how much you are using together on the same display. The display shows the electricity in use in your home in Watts or Pounds. Wattson Solar Plus alerts you when you are generating more power than you are using by immediately glowing green. This means you can maximise the returns on your PV system by using the electricity you need when you are generating excess.
