PVOutput Wild Mountain Farms: PVOutput System and PVOutput SolarThing Teams

SolarThing Android: Github | Google Play

SolarThing Android displays data in a persistent notification that updates at a configurable rate alt text

You can get data in Grafana via InfluxDB or via CouchDB+SolarThing GraphQL.

Usage at Wild Mountain Farms

We monitor an Outback MATE2, Renogy Rover PG 40A, EPEver Tracer2210AN (20A) using a Raspberry Pi 3. Each device has its own instance of SolarThing running. Each instance uploads data to CouchDB. CouchDB, Grafana, and SolarThing GraphQL run on a separate "NAS" computer. This NAS runs the automation and pvoutput programs. The automation program handles the sending of Slack messages for low battery notifications.

Database Setup

  • CouchDB setup
    • Used for SolarThing Android, SolarThing Web, and SolarThing GraphQL (which gets data to Grafana)
  • InfluxDB 2.0 setup
    • Used for direct Grafana queries

If you have suggestions on how to improve the documentation or have a feature request, I'd love to hear from you! SolarThing Issues

If you get confused while trying to configure solarthing, that's probably because the documentation is always a work in progress. If you find something confusing, please report it, so I can make it clearer.
