Sense identified solar array problem

Some of the microinverts in my solar array were putting out errors. Not unusual on cloudy days, and I was told they might have stopped reporting but were still giving power. But when I looked at Senese trends there was a clear step down on the max solar output. And it coincided perfectly with the date and time the microinverters last reported. Put in a warranty claim with the manufacturer and got free replacements.

Sense showed that my solar system output had a clear drop in power and needed repair. Without Sense I might have thought it was just the normal drop in power heading into winter and would not have realized the problem until next spring.
