PVOutput


The pvoutput sensor platform consumes information from PVOutput which were uploaded by your solar photovoltaic (PV) system.

To add PVOutput details to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: pvoutput
    system_id: YOUR_SYSTEM_ID
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY

Configuration Variables

api_key string Required

Your API key. A read-only key is fine.

system_id string Required

The ID of your station.

name string (Optional, default: PVOutput)

Name of the sensor.

To format the PVoutput sensor it’s recommended to use the template component. For example:

sensor:
  - platform: pvoutput
    system_id: YOUR_SYSTEM_ID
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
  - platform: template
    sensors:
      power_consumption:
        value_template: "{% if is_state_attr('sensor.pvoutput', 'power_consumption', 'NaN') %}0{% else %}{{ state_attr('sensor.pvoutput', 'power_consumption') }}{% endif %}"
        friendly_name: "Using"
        unit_of_measurement: "Watt"
      energy_consumption:
        value_template: '{{ "%0.1f"|format(state_attr("sensor.pvoutput", "energy_consumption")|float/1000) }}'
        friendly_name: "Used"
        unit_of_measurement: "kWh"
      power_generation:
        value_template: '{% if is_state_attr("sensor.pvoutput", "power_generation", "NaN") %}0{% else %}{{ state_attr("sensor.pvoutput", "power_generation") }}{% endif %}'
        friendly_name: "Generating"
        unit_of_measurement: "Watt"
      energy_generation:
        value_template: '{% if is_state_attr("sensor.pvoutput", "energy_generation", "NaN") %}0{% else %}{{ "%0.2f"|format(state_attr("sensor.pvoutput", "energy_generation")|float/1000) }}{% endif %}'
        friendly_name: "Generated"
        unit_of_measurement: "kWh"
