    ESKOM Trickle Feed

    Thanks. That indeed makes some sense.
  2. Hi All, I have just had my PV system installed, and to be honest, I find much of the technical details quite confusing. My house is fed directly off the Eskom grid via a pre-paid meter. My grid-tied system has two strings of panels feeding into a Freedom Won Lite 10/7 lithium iron phosphate battery and via 5kW OmniPower Hybrid Inverter into my house. Everything, bar my electric oven, is connected to the inverter. After 9 days of running the system I am contemplating to also connect the electric oven to the system because of the surplus power available. Here is my problem: Notwithstanding my consumption feeding off my solar reserves, my Eskom pre-paid meter indicates a fluctuating trickle of about 10 kWh over a period of 6 days. I also run a Smappee power consumption monitor that shows the fluctuating trickle. Question: Should there be a trickle, or should the switch be completely off whilst the system is fed off solar? Am I looking at this the wrong way? Thank you kindly. Scat.
