Can I connect an existing site with an eGauge to ETB Monitor without a site visit?
Please see the below guide to determine if your existing eGauge configuration enables your site to be easily connected to ETB Monitor. If your site does not match the below requirements, there are likely other paths to setting up your site within ETB Monitor, so please contact your account manager for further details.
Step 1: Determine if you eGauge model is compatible with ETB Monitor.
- Log in to the eGauge website and navigate to the My Portfolio Page. Your eGauge model is listed under the model column in your eGauge portfolio table. Most eGauge models should work, but if you are using a model other than the eGauge4015 or eGauge4115, please contact your account manager to verify that your eGauge is compatible.
Step 2: Verify that the eGauge is measuring the required values.
- To get the full ETB Monitor experience your eGauge will need to be measuring the metered site load, as well as the solar PV generation. If you are planning on measuring the solar arrays separately, or any auxiliary loads, those will also need to be measured independently. To see what the eGauge is measuring, click into the specific eGauge from the Portfolio page and navigate to the Installation page. Under the Registers section, you can see what is being measured by the eGauge, and you can verify that both the site load and solar PV generation are being measured.
- You should also be able to see this data on the main eGauge chart. If you have questions about the measurements or how to add missing measurements, please contact your account manager.
Step 3: Make sure the Data Share feature is not being used.
- ETB Monitor has an integration with eGauge using eGauge’s Data Sharing feature. To make sure that ETB Monitor can utilize this feature, navigate to the General Settings page for the specific eGauge. Make sure that the Data Sharing fields are visible, and that the fields are empty. If this feature is currently being used by another provider, please contact your account manager to discuss other options.
If your existing eGauge configuration meets all of these requirements, then your site should be able to easily connect to ETB Monitor without a site visit being necessary. If your metering configuration does not meet these requirements, connecting to ETB Monitor may still be possible without a site visit, but you should contact your account manager to discuss the different options available.
