Meet the geo Solo PV solar monitoring range: but which solar monitor is best for you?

Solo II PV for solar panel microgeneration

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use solar monitor that shows you the most important solar stats (i.e. kilowatts generated, money earned through the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) and CO2 saved) and can be quickly installed by yourself, we’d recommend our Solo II PV solar monitor. This in-home display features an easy-to-read, colour screen that shows both real-time and historic solar data.

Plus, the Solo II PV will even tell you (by means of a bright, green finger icon that lights up) when to turn on your high-load home appliances, like your dishwasher or washing machine, to help you use every last kW drop of your generated energy. Take a look at the Solo II PV page for more info.

Solo II PV with energynote online services

Want to see your solar generation data in even more depth? Choose the Solo II PV with energynote online services option for all the benefits of the Solo II PV solar monitor, but with access to extra data.

The energynote web app lets you see your data in as much detail as you’d like to see it in – over the past, weeks, months and even years. What’s more, the energynote app makes it possible for you monitor your solar generation from wherever you are in the world – from either your PC, laptop or smartphone.

For more info on this solar monitoring option, take a look at our Solo II PV with energynote page.

Solo III PV solar monitoring system

If you’re looking for an advanced solar monitoring package, then the Solo III PV (again, complete with energynote online data services) would be the one for you. The Solo III PV package includes your solar in-home display, a meter and access to energynote online services.

Unlike the Solo II PV, this 100% meter-accurate solar monitoring system does need to be installed by a professional (either before or after your panels are in place) – though installation normally only takes up to an hour.

With the meter installed you’re then able to see (on both the Solo III PV display and energynote web app) exactly how much energy you’re importing and exporting at any given time, along with money earned from the FiT and the amount of CO2 saved – with data given in both real-time and historic terms. It also shows you (similar to the Solo II PV) when the best times to turn your high-load appliances on are.

The Solo III PV also lets you set up to three consumption tariffs and a standing charge. It also comes with access to our energynote online services, meaning you can see your solar data (on either your phone, PC or tablet) in as much detail as you like.

Take a look at the Solo III PV page for more info on this solar monitoring option.

Your comments

  • I have a solar pv system with Energys micro inverters. Energys previously provided free monitoring but they have now gone bust.
    I now need a simple monitoring system, at least to ensure all panels are producing
    Can you help?

    ps – I am also pursuing the idea of a Cosy for internal CH control

  • Hello. If you’re looking for a simple PV monitoring system, we’d recommend the Solo II PV. You can choose either to have the monitor-only option (£74.95) or to have the solar monitor + online data service – to see your solar generation data in even more depth – for £99.95. If you’d like any more help with choosing the right solar monitor (or to find out more about Cosy), our friendly support team (email: would be more than happy to help 🙂 Michelle

  • I own a solar panel system sales, design and marketing company in the midwest. When I install using microinverters, I have been trying to have an APsystems monitoring system, including the ECU. It is very time-consuming and tedious to install. Is your monitor easier to put into service?

  • Hi Hugh. Thanks for getting in touch. Both our Solo II and Solo III PV monitors can be installed quite easily into homes – either alongside, or after, PV installation. Our Solo II PV doesn’t need to be installed by a professional installer either – and can be installed by the homeowner.

    For more info, we’d recommend getting in touch with James (details on this contact page) who’ll be able to help with any more questions you have. Thanks. Michelle
