Solar Power Production and Consumption Monitoring

I set out to develop a system that would allow me to monitor the production and consumption of energy for a solar panel set-up. The solution was to use XBEE wireless sensors to capture current/voltage data and relay that to a base station connected to a laptop. The information would then be sent to the internet. The raw data received from the XBEEs would be parsed using Python. The KWH consumed would be logged. More details would be posted as the project progresses.
