I have a solar system ,2.16 kw, and recently united energy came and installed a EM1200 meter, but no information as to how to read this meter.
A red light is up towards the top of this meter, and sometimes it is on constantly, sometimes not on at all, and some times continuously blinking. I have tried to relate the blinking/non blinking to the weather at the time, but there doesnt seem to be any similarity to measure it by, for instance, sometimes we come home after being out all day ,and nothing in the house using power, expect the fridge, and yet the red light is on constantly, then another day it isnt. This seems to be happening regardless of the sunshine at the time. I am wondering why it would be showing a red light on constantly when we come home , when only the fridge in the house is on, and even the fridge is a modern one, not old at all.
I have tried contacting united energy, to question this, but I cant get past the girl on the phone who tells me, not to worry, there is nothing to worry about, although she doesnt seem to have any idea as to why the light is blinking/not blinking, so obviously she doesnt know herself. But try as I may I cant get to talk to anyone in the technical field who would be able to explain it to me.
United energy did send me a phamplet to read about the meter they installed after I asked them to, but strangely enough, the red light problem of blink/no blink, doesnt get a mention. Can anyone help me with this please, an explanation would be a great help, I eagerly await an answer from someone who would kknow,... thanks in advance, Hutch.
