Is the Fronius Smart Meter really worth the additional expense? How will the additional features actually benefit you? As expectations from a self generated power supplies increase, so to does the dilemma of whether to include a Fronius Smart Meter or not. Fact is, this one device could help save you thousands more than without it.
It’s highly likely you are either one of two scenarios. You are looking to purchase a brand new solar energy system with a Fronius solar inverter. Or you are looking to enhance the current features of your existing Fronius infused solar energy system. No matter which camp you are from the following 6 reasons why you need a Fronius Smart Meter are for you
6. Save thousands more.
You really could save thousands of dollars more over your systems production life through better energy insight. Here’s how…As opposed to simply generating energy and guessing what appliances to use and when, using the Fronius Smart Meter gives one the ability to know what your installation maybe consuming in energy and understand what shifting must occur.
Simply operating electrical appliances during the middle of the day isn’t going ensure the best result. Depending on the maximum power output of your solar system, staggering appliance operation time is often the better solution. A Fronius Smart Meter facilitates the required and effortless load shifting insight due to a better understanding of consumption data. An ability to accurately load shift inline with solar production is the key to energy true saving success.
Bonus fact: Better load shifting abilities will reduce the need for a larger battery capacity in the future, saving thousands more!
5. It’s different to your electricity meter.
Above: Smart Meter vs Smart Meter – Not the same.
Considering new versions of supply authority owned electricity meters can also referred to as Smart Meters in certain regions of the world, these serve two completely separate purposes.
Your supply authority owned Smart Meter isn’t very smart to your advantage, unless you are prepared to manually cycle through the necessary recordings at the intervals you desire and are prepared to record the information on a spreadsheet for an ongoing basis.
The Fronius Smart Meter provides energy import and export data in conjunction with production data from the solar energy system for the end user, through a user-friendly online portal. Te Fronius Solar.web portal enables a user to easily calculate the perfect time for appliance operation in times of optimum energy savings or when surplus energy is being exported to the grid.
4. Superior insight.
Utilising the Fronius Solar.web online portal, access your complete energy profile. The entire picture in association with a Fronius grid-connected inverter.

3. View from anywhere.
In assistance with an accompanying WiFi connection, view your entire energy profile LIVE from wherever you are in the world with an internet connection and a smart device. The world is evolving to more intelligent appliances which can operate in the palm of your hand on demand. Viewing the detailed energy analysis of your home or business as you need it is one less complication you no longer need to worry about in anticipation of your electricity bill arrival.
2. All power supplies benefit.
Both single phase and three phase power supplies have the opportunity to gain full insight into the entire energy supply. Unlike many alternative manufacturers who have not quite yet perfected the art of both single and three phase power supplies, rest assured Fronius have with two versions of the Fronius Smart Meter. No mater your grid power supply, the Fronius Smart Meter is built for your installation.
1. Unrivalled energy management.
The Fronius Smart Meter is a major piece towards understanding your entire energy profile. Understanding how you use your electricity ensures you can mange it better. Very few string inverter type solar energy systems, combined with an integrated smart meter, can provide such detailed analytics for both homeowner and supporting installer.
Do you need one?
Yes! if you love data as much as we do that is. However, at the end of the day, it will depend on your individual circumstance and how well you can adapt to technology. If you don’t care much for data, energy analysis or retaining historical information, then it won’t be of much use. Education though is the key, a better understanding of the elements will always take you further.
99% of technical experts will suggest the Fronius Smart Meter is a key component in controlling bill reduction and giving the end user the ability to see what other solar energy system owners cannot.
