The EKM Widget is a great way to quickly get a visual idea of how your systems are doing. We use it to see, in real-time, how much our office is using and how much power our solar is producing. We use the historical chart to see how efficiency upgrades have reduced our usage, as well as to see how much energy our electric car has used over time.
How to Set Up the EKM Widget
Choose which data sets you are interested in. Go to the Gear icon Layout/Fields Tab and select up to four values to display in the Graph Fields list. Here is an example of a Widget with watts on each line, with the legend and buttons hidden, and with time displayed in Los Angeles time (to get the url click on the bookmark icon in the top right corner): Full Version
This one shows Net Watts. This lets you know in real-time if you are generating more than you are consuming in net metering situations. (This data is only possible with v.4 Omnimeters)
Display historical bar charts in either 15 minute, hour, day, week, or month increments, spanning from 12 hours to 2 years. Use to see production or consumption over time. Here is a solar PV system showing kWh production over the last week. In this case each bar represents a hour's kWh generation and the sum of all the bars is shown in the horizontal green bar below the graph. Full Version
This one shows a month of electricity usage in a home. In this case each bar represents a day's kWh usage and the sum of all the bars is shown in the horizontal green bar below the graph.
This one shows a month of water usage.
This one shows Net kWh. This lets you visualize how much you are generating vs. consuming in net metering situations.
