Switch from my 5000 or not?
« on: August 25, 2015, 01:19:28 AM »
Curious as to anyone's thoughts on if the switch to the newer model is worth it over the 5000?

I am monitoring one 200 amp panel and a solar array that is backfed through breakers in the same panel.

I had one of them days with my 5000  last week, woke up to 90,000 kWh's used by 4am..  ???

Had to do the reset totals to zero...I will have enough data between my electric meter and my Enphase data from my solar array to tally the month up and keep detailed records, but it is still discouraging between these blips that seem to happen each year, or the battery going bad, or the unit just up and failing.....

Really looking for a long term reliable solution....question is, is the Pro my solution?
