Why? because it would NOT deal with outgoing power.


The problem with C that made the device unusable for me was:

It treated the power that my 10 kW solar PV system was sending
to the grid, as if I was buying it from the utility.

OUCH! Dead wrong, but I admit the measurements were accurate
and would be ideal for someone who did NOT generate enough surplus
power to be returning power to the grid. I do, and typically,
enough that I have an annual credit with PG&E.

It wasn't intended to do that but, I designed it to support an
electric powered car.  All of these were withdrawn from production,
just as my system went on line.  BUT, now there is hope, the PHEV
(Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicles) are coming.. maybe.. someday.

Jim's reply to Nina:
    I do not intend to downplay your abilities, but, if you needed the
instruction on how to use a multimeter
that you requested in another post today, it would be best for you to
get an electrician to install it for you.
It does require opening up the fuse/circuit breaker panel and putting
two toroid coils around each
of the incoming utility (mains) power lines (not the neutral).  You do
not attach the unit to any
wiring, but you do need to identify what you want to do and then to work
in close proximity
(actually touching the insulation) of deadly and dangerous wiring.
