If you own a Tesla, you’re probably aware that this electric car manufacturer is famous for being an innovator. From the self-driving and fully-electric vehicles it makes to the more affordable Powerwall battery it has released and Model 3 car that’s set for release in late 2018, Tesla has set the bar for innovation in the automobile world. As a homeowner with one or more photovoltaic (solar energy) panels sitting out there somewhere, you might be wondering how you can keep track of your solar energy system. Thankfully, there’s an app for that! Here are 6 tips to monitor your solar panels with a solar app

Download the Tesla Solar App

First things first, you’ll need to download the Tesla Solar App. This app is used to monitor your solar panels’ performance and to store data regarding your system’s performance.

Simply open up app store in either Android or Apple device and download away!

Set Up the Tesla Solar App

Once your solar app is downloaded and set up, you’ll be ready to begin monitoring your system. The first thing you’ll need to do is find your solar panel’s location. Simply follow the directions inside of the app.

Know Your Battery’s Capacity

The next thing you’ll want to do is find out your battery’s capacity. To do this, you’ll need to charge your battery to its full capacity. Once the battery reaches its full capacity, you’ll be able to view the battery’s level by navigating to “Settings” and selecting “Tesla Battery Status”. This is your battery’s health. You’ll want to make sure that it is at 100% so that you can know it has a full charge. If you see that it is at 90% or below, you’ll want to charge your battery to its full capacity ASAP. You’ll want to know how much juice your battery has so that you can make sure that your solar panels are receiving enough energy.

Know Your System’s Overall Performance

Once you have your battery’s capacity, you can then find out how your system is performing. To do this, you’ll want to charge your battery to 100% and wait until it drops to 90% or below. After your battery reaches 90%, you’ll want to wait until it drops to 70% or below. This is your system’s overall performance. If it is at 70% or below, you’ll want to make sure that you are charging your battery to its full capacity. If your battery is at 70% or below, it will not receive as much energy from your solar panels as it should. You’ll want to make sure that it is receiving as much energy as it can so that it can generate a full charge.

Monitor Voltage, Current and Power

After you know your system’s overall performance and your battery’s capacity, you can then monitor your system’s performance. To do this, charge your battery to 100% and wait until it drops to 90% or below. You’ll want to wait until your voltage drops from 12.2 to 11.9. You’ll want to monitor your current as well. To do this, you’ll need to pull out a digital multimeter. When you do, you’ll want to make sure that you are using a digital meter that has amps and volts.

Understand What Weather Conditions Affect Your System

Now that you know what affects your system’s performance, you can then make sure that you aren’t doing anything that would affect your system’s performance. To do this, you’ll want to make sure that you are charging your battery to its full capacity. You’ll want to make sure that you aren’t doing anything that will affect your system’s performance. For example, you want to make sure that you aren’t playing music loudly or making too many utility bill payments. These will all affect your system’s performance and can make your system’s performance worse. You’ll want to make sure that you aren’t doing anything
