Adding a self-consumption ratio meter

Post by polvere79 » Wed Dec 02, 2020 12:49 pm


I'd like to add to Metern the info ralated to the self-consumption ratio. I was thinking to have it in dashboard, as a % for instant value, daily and total., but also to have it in graphs.

So I guess it should be a new meter, to be added to the meter&sensor configuration. Is that correct? For doing so, I need to write a script (comapp) for this, and add the related command to the new meter?

Or I'm just trying to reinvent the wheel, and this is already available somewhere?

You can see instant self-consumption % in dashboard if you set house consumption(s) and house production(s) meter(s).
But, if you want a dedicated meter for this counting, you need to set a new meter (elect other type) that need a com app for this purpose.
The Housenergy script example have this 'virtual meter' and mind i write it for one-phased.
