Monitor the Lights
Honestly it takes but a couple seconds to check your inverter. Make it a habit of checking it either before you leave the house or as soon as you arise in the morning.
Green Light – If it’s constant, that means your panels are drawing energy required; if the green light is flashing, this simply means that your system is starting up. This flashing should not exceed a couple minutes.
Red/Yellow Light – This is a warning light letting you know of an issue. The screen should go in detail as to what the issue is.
Check the Readouts
Readouts keep you aware of the total amount of operational hours of your inverter as well as power input/output in kWh or MWH for the day.
Check Your Inverter Stats on your computer or Online
Yes this is quite possible. See, most inverters come with a data cable allowing it to be checked from your computer. Others come with WiFi or even Bluetooth Support, so you can wirelessly access your inverter data.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how you decide to monitor your inverter, just make sure you do it regularly! That way in the event of any issues, you’ll know about it from the Genesis and have it sorted out quickly.
