cool thanks I checked out the Commander app it actually shows a more actuate amount price wise it's maybe off  by 4 cents ... the power usage is right . I've already been credited on my bill with BG and E for 3 hours on Thursday.. by there smart meter app on BG and G site .. Friday was the first full solar day that ended in a negative amount by the Pro app and the Commander app , it takes my Power company two days to show .. so I'll know tomorrow or Monday what Friday was,I'm gonna love having solar.

I also mine Cryptocurrencie so Friday also gave me negative amount used from the power company with half the farm on . I need to buy the other CT/MTU unit, I'm gonna need it .

Thanks for any help any one gave me . Smiley ....


PS: now the Pro live app shows the price off by 4 or so cents sense i played around with the Commander app.

You should be able to plug in your various rates and fees into the TED program. The problem I have is with my bi-directional meter, Georgia Power buys from me at a different rate than what they sell to me for, and as far as I can determine, this needs to be addressed in the TED software... or am I missing something ?

Unfortunately, you are correct that Footprints has a lot of options for time-based rates and standing charges but only supports a single $/kWh rate at any given time. I believe that the web-based Commander App may offer even more options, but I have never used it.

 OK my solar was installed and up runing it's great Ted Pro Home is spot on  when it comes to  what I'm using with solar or it goes - while solar is in use.  at least till i can buy another CT and MTU kit I'll go by that till then.

My new Question is there a Guide some place i can follow that lets me set up pricing BY Baltimore Gas and Electric billing , so far ted matches right up with Baltimore Gas and Electric as far as Power usages goes with Kwh it show what Baltimore Gas and Electric shows for usage but not price so i know i have that set up wrong and have a hard time figuring what goes were for pricing . i even added it all up with Fees it comes to about 12 cents per Kwh, So I listed the flat fee of 12 cents and left the rest alone all but the 7.90 fixed charge....each month . my power is flat fee without fees 7.59 cents pkwh.I hope I explained it right .


ah yea Ted seems to be off by 2 bucks BG AND E Has 2 bucks more ... but as i said above the USAGES match with BG and E.

Most PV strings (the ones I have, anyway) are designed for max 20A double pole breakers. If your PV input never exceeds 20 amps I don't see why using 20A CT's wouldn't work. - FWIW

The issue is not whether the current exceeds the rating of the CT, but whether there are 20A CTs that are compatible with the TED MTUs (as opposed to the Spyder unit). Plugging a 20A CT intended for use on a Spyder into a MTU CT input is (at the very least) likely to result in calibration problems.

Posting the resolution, I swapped things out one by one and it turned out to be a bad MTU, bad in that it was returning inaccurate (way too high) spyder readings.

During the troubleshooting I learned that the latching split-collar and squeeze-type split-collar 200A CTs are calibrated differently, and MTU's with serial number 17xxxyy are set up to use the squeeze-type.  If you use a latching-type 200A CT instead the calibration factor is 2.61 (Ted Pro /Advanced/Modify MTU Calibration.

Thanks to David in support.
