How to monitor your SolarEdge system
Congratulations on going solar with Freedom Forever. Now that your new system has been turned on, it’s time to learn how to monitor it. Monitoring your system enables you to see how much power it is producing. Your solar system is monitored using SolarEdge monitoring software. Below are instructions for using the SolarEdge monitoring portal.
Register with SolarEdge to access the solar monitoring system

Fill out all the needed information in the fields. Change the System Units from Metric to Imperial. Check the first box to acknowledge that you agree to the terms and conditions.

Download the app for monitoring on the go
If you want to monitor your Freedom Forever solar system on your phone, you’ll need to download the SolarEdge App for your phone. You will need to register with SolarEdge by following the steps above before you can access your system’s information in the app.
The information displayed by the SolarEdge monitoring system
Dashboard: When you log into the SolarEdge monitoring system, you’ll see at a glance how much power your system has generated that day, for the month, and for the entire time you’ve owned it. The system also shows you how much power you’ve drawn from the grid.
The system also displays how much money your system has saved you on electricity. It does this by calculating the cost for the power you use based on how much power you’ve used and how much your utility charges you for electricity.
You’ll also see a bar that displays how much power you’ve used versus how much power you’ve produced. You can change the display date of the bar so you can see how much power you’ve consumed versus how much you’ve generated by the day, week, or month. The app allows you to view any day, week, or month that you want.
By request. If you want to view your system’s performance right down to the individual solar panel, you can request component-level access from Freedom Forever. Just call us and say you want to upgrade your access to your SolarEdge portal, and we’ll take care of it.
Tip: To get back to your dashboard, click the dashboard icon on the top-left part of the screen
Layout: Under the “Layout” tab on the top-left of the screen, you’ll find a schematic layout that represents inverters, clusters, strings and the modules of your solar system. You can view this information to become familiar with the layout of your system. You will be able to see how much power has been generated by each individual solar panel in your system.
