API access to power sensor data

Hello, is the power sensor info available in the api? I’d love to be able to see how much energy the house is either drawing from or sending to the grid at any time. I know I can add an alternative power meter but would prefer to make use of what’s already available if possible.

Similarly, is there a way to write to the power sensor information via the API?

I won’t be able to use the CT clamps (I don’t think), because the charger will be located 40m away from the main switchboard, off a sub-switchboard in the garage. I can use the Enphase local API to get the current solar generation and consumption data. I was initially thinking of doing this with ChargeHQ, but it looks like the Evnex product doesn’t support changing the OCPP server to the Charge HQ servers. But it looks like your software can replace ChargeHQ, but not if it can’t get power data from my house.

Hi there.

Thanks for your patience waiting for an answer here!

Right now there is no way to access this information, though we have it on our medium term roadmap to add that capability (by which I mean not in 2023, but hopefully in the next year).

I hadn’t considered the use case of writing power sensor information to enable solar diversion, but it’s an interesting one! In your scenario I would guess we’d be more likely to go down the path of writing an integration direct to the Enphase API (rather than have you do it and pass it on) since that would be much simpler for other non-technical users to set up. We will have a think about how that might be done. Incidentally I think a CT clamp could work at that distance, but it may be impractical / expensive to actually run a cable that far.

Regards,

I had the same issue - sub-board a long way from the main fuse panel where the 3 phase and PV inputs are located. I had to run a seperate cable for the CT clamp
