There’s been a good amount of interest from the community on how I’ve been able to create a program to automatically track my Tesla energy consumption,and the amount of solar energy my home SolarCity system generates.
Before I share the repository for the code, just fair warning that I won’t be able to help anyone get things set up, especially for those on Windows. If there turns out to be a common area of confusion, I’ll be sure to clear things up at that time.
As mentioned, this code is open source and free to use by anyone but you’ll be required to understand the programming language (Python), how to install packages, and use git if you want to use this work.
That said, the code can be found over on GitHub:
I hope by sharing this code it helps the growing Tesla and SolarCity community with creating some unique apps and tools, but most importantly I hope it inspires the greater community to adopt technologies that help our planet.
