Abstract

See full text

Techniques for managing connections within an energy generation network may be provided. Real-time data associated with network-connected energy generation devices at a location may be collected to determine communication channels between the devices. If it is determined that an inverter of the network is solar-powered, a wizard application may be launched to help a technician determine whether a meter will lose connectivity with a gateway device. The wizard application may provide instructions to power down the inverter. Once the inverter is powered down, it may be determined whether the metering device has lost its network connection with the gateway. If so, an instruction to install a repeater device during the installation may be provided.
