1st time Arduino user here and looking for help figuring out what components to buy and what software to install. Please assume I have no programming or electronics or hardware knowledge but I’m willing to learn.
Please see the attached flow chart I wrote for myself to help me understand how I MIGHT accomplish my goal of absorbing excess electricity generated by my rooftop solar panels. My power company cheats me out of paying a reasonable price for electricity I export to the grid so I’m wanting to use my solar power on-site.
It’s winter here in Minnesota and I could consume my excess solar energy by firing one or two small heaters on different 120 Volt AC circuits, after detecting excess energy by sensing and comparing two different 240 VAC amperages.
Ideally if anyone enjoys helping by designing systems, plus a Bill Of Materials it would be greatly appreciated and I’ll proceed to buying those components and figure out how to build a working system.
Thanks if you can help!
