#756 Solar panels and building consumption

Pieter van der Mijle Tue 12 Nov 2019

More and more of our buildings are equipped with solar panels. Via the tags import, export and net we are able to put this in our data model.

However, many of our algorithms are based on building consumption. For example we expect lower building consumption during weekends compared to the weekdays.

In the situation without solar panels, the building consumption equals the imported energy under the siteMeter.

In case we have solar panels, we need to compute the building consumption (= imported energy from grid + (solar panel production - exported energy to grid) and possibly store this in a separate equip and point.

Does anyone have suggestions for this? We are thinking of introducing a building consumption equip, with a virtual meter.
