Our partnership with Sense offers solar contractors a way to accurately match solar and storage capacity to individual customers' energy needs and lifestyles, creating greater system value for the end consumer."

Sense Solar tells solar customers exactly how much energy their solar installation is producing, how much the home is using, and how much is being sold back to the grid—continuously, in real time. At the same time, Sense users see their home's energy usage, right down to individual devices, so they can track, plan and budget realistically, taking full advantage of their solar investment. With Sense, customers instantly see the impact of reducing their energy use, helping improve satisfaction and opening the door for referrals to their providers.

Sense Solar is compatible with solar installations regardless of inverter or panel technology used. When combined with installation of advancedAC solar modules from LG Electronics, Sense goes further, seamlessly connecting to the LG EnerVu2 energy monitoring app to increase the functionality and performance of the on-board LG software solution, providing a powerful experience for solar providers and their customers.
