The solar industry has been hit hard by the current virus pandemic. Thus the company that installed my solar system, Socal Solar went bankrupt and quit paying for the SolarLog monotoring services. My Solarlog account was deactivated due to non payment. When I contacted Solarlog I was informed that they had created a free portal for plants under 30KW which I presume covers most home installations. I was quicky re connected by helpful staff and can now agin monitor my production free of charge.
Thank you Solarlog

Not user friendly
The monitoring platform itself is not very user friendly. The sales / technical support is lacking and rude. Generic yet awkward interface and over priced. Tech support will be needed to figure out how to find useful info as opposed to how many trees were planted or cars not driven. Just use Locus or eGuage.
