Gridtie overnight vampire usage
I have a small 1.4kw array with 6 panels and 6 enphase microinverters. I just installed a Mieo inductive power monitor at my pv breaker to monitor my output remotely without using the envoy. I noticed after sundown it reads 90-100watts all night long . With the breaker off I get a zero reading. What I've read is standby power should be closer to 1 watt not 15 watts each. I read here on another post this might be sensing reactive power. Is there a way to differentiate? I have another power monitor on my service entrance after the power company meter and it shows about the same load when i turn the pv breaker on/off.
