Type Quick App

This QuickApp monitors your SolarEdge managed Solar Panels. The QuickApp has (child) devices for Solar Power, todays data, this month data, this year data and Lifetime data. 

The Solar Production values are only requested from the SolarEdge Cloud between sunrise and sunset. The QuickApp also shows the Environmental Benefits in the labels for CO2, SO2, NOX, Trees planted and Lightbulbs and also the SolarEdge Installation details in the labels. The Environmental Benefits are updated once a day after 12:00 hour. 

The settings for Peak Power and Currency are retrieved from the inverter. The rateType interface of Child device Last Day is automatically set to "production" and values from this child devices can be used for the Energy Panel. 

The readings for lastyear and lifetime energy are automatically set to the right Wh unit (Wh, kWh, MWh or GWh). 

See API documentation on https://www.solaredge.com/sites/default/files/se_monitoring_api.pdf

 Changes version 2.1 (3rd April 2022)

  • Solved bug with child device lastDay showing incorrect values in energy panel

Variables (mandatory and created automatically): 

  • siteID = Site ID of your SolarEdge Inverter (see your Inverter Site Details)
  • apiKey = API key of your SolarEdge Inverter (contact your installer if you don't have one)
  • systemUnits = SystemUnits is Metrics (kg) or Imperial (Lb) (default is Metrics)
  • solarM2 = The amount of m2 Solar Panels (use . for decimals) for calculating Solar Power m2 (default = 0)
  • interval = The daily API limitation is 300 requests. The default request interval is 360 seconds (6 minutes) 
  • pause = Should the SolardEdge go in pause mode after sunset (default = true)
  • debugLevel = Number (1=some, 2=few, 3=all, 4=simulation mode) (default = 1)


Tested with: 

SolarEdge firmware version 4.12.35 and 4.13.40


 How to install: 

  1. Open the Configuration Interface
  2. Go to Settings > Devices
  3. Click  +
  4. Choose Other Device

Hello, as I understand there is only power production retrived from solar edge cloud. Do you have also plans to add power consumption in case if solar edge power meter is used? As I know information about consumption is also available in the cloud.

Hi Grzegorz, this quickapp indeed get production values from the SolarEdge cloud. If you mean with SolarEdge power meter the SolarEdge Energy Meter with Modbus Connection (https://www.solaredge.com/products/metering-and-sensors/solaredge-modbus-meter#/), I think it would be possible to get values from there. But I don't use the SolarEdge Energy Meter with Modbus Connection and would need info on how it works.

Yes, I think about this kind of metering. I have something like this in my home. It seems that energy meter is conected via modbus with inverter and inverted is sending whole scope of information to SolarEdge cloud. I have in cloud both information about consumption and production.

If you can send me (easiest way is PM on forum) an example of the response from SolarEdge Cloud, I can take a look how to implement it in the QuickApp.

Hi, Please check the value of last day kWh. In the energy panel there is mistake I think. On the solar egdge website panel and in the device list the valule is correct = 14,2 kWh (20.02.2022) but in the energy panel is 42,58 kWh. Last day input is directly from solar edge monitoring website or it is calculated somehow? Do You need PM on forum?
