I have googled and found a few sites showing real time pv production
data (mostly SMA materiel, but nothing very "accessible"

I was wondering if others could point me to some sites.

I am working on displaying pv production data for a wide audience (from
primary school kids to architects to politicians and supermarket
shoppers...) and I am looking for inspiration.

(What sort of data is displayed for comparison? which inverter
manufacturers have integrated online display capabilities? does it look
good? does it show useful and educational data?...)

Thanks for any tips

click on real-time status link

Xantrex provides software (free)  for the GT3.0 inverter called GT-View , it
has web-friendly options for internet displaying of data

I'm trying to develop something rather similar.  If you email me a real
email address I'll mail you a screen shot of the sort of thing I'm
working on.
