Google Project Sunroof – About

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/28

We already have a lot of solar panels, but if you do not and live in the USA, then this might be a good starting point to get a solar estimate for your area, based on the amount of usable sunlight and roof space.

LOW-TECH MAGAZINE

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/16

Below is a cool site that I do not just list because I like the site, but also that they have a solar powered server running a low-tech version of it.

[WayBack] LOW-TECH MAGAZINE

Doubts on progress and technology

It actually started as a Dutch site, is ran by a Belgian now living in Barcelona. This means many articles are available in various languages, not just English and Dutch, but many also in French, German, Spanish, and Italian. Some articles are only available in English or Dutch.

Via: [WayBack] The last c’t Magazin +c’t magazin mentioned lowtechmagazine.com and I have already spent hours reading various articles there … – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

Here are some more links.

Links to help me monitor my Zeverlution PV converter locally

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

Since it’s my data, I’d rather be in control myself, so here are some links that will help me going around the Zevercloud solution I posted about yesterday.

Some other interesting links of software supporting Zeversolar devices:

Note that PVoutput.org does have native ZeverCloud updating using the ZeverSolar API key:

But these might help me:

Registering your Zeverlution device in the Zeversolar cloud

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/17

If you have a Zeverlution PV converter, the easiest to get at the data is through the Zeversolar cloud.

The included documentation does not contain web browser registration instructions, only Android/iOS app.

So here we go:

  1. Create an account at [WayBackZeverCloud – Login: click CREATE AN ACCOUNT, then
    1. Fill in these fields:
      • Email
      • Password
      • Re-type Your Password
    2. Check the I agree to the Terms of Service & Privacy Policy box
    3. Press SUBMIT button
    4. Wait for your confirmation email to arrive
    5. Confirm your account
    6. Logon
  2. Follow the https://www.zevercloud.com/station/create link, then
    1. Fill in these fields:
      1. Monitor SN (this is actually the MAC address without seperator; it starts with EAB961 which is an unknown OUI)
      2. Registry Key
    2. Press the Continue button
    3. Fill in these fields:
      1. Plant Name
      2. Installed Capacity (note the unit is not Wp, but KWp, so multiply the # of panels by the Wp of the panels, then devide by 1000)
      3. Commissioning (date in YYYY-MM-DD format)
      4. Company/Organization
    4. Press the Continue button
    5. Fill in these fields:
      1. CO2 Avoided Factor (the unit is Kg/KWh; For The Netherlands get it from [Archive.isLijst emissiefactoren | CO2 emissiefactoren under ELEKTRICITEIT)
      2. Yield Factor (the unit is Currency/KWh where Currency is from field 3; get this from your local energy supplier)
      3. Currency
      4. Timezone *
    6. Check the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time box
    7. Press the Continue button
    8. Fill in these fields:
      1. Country
      2. State
        1. Since this field could not be filled in for The Netherlands, I changed it using the Chrome Developer Tools having one option value: <option value="0">N/A</option>
      3. City
      4. Street/No.
      5. Zip Code
      6. Longitude
      7. Latitude
    9. Press the Save button

Note that the 2.0.2 version of [WayBack] ZeverCloud – Apps on Google Play does not work on Android Oreo.

Via internal Zeversolar channels, I got 2.0.2 development version Android works on Oreo – ZeverCloud.apk.zip which despite the same version number, does work.
