    I'm talking like using the meters and current sensors to automate the export during months when I would be using less than I produce, so I don't give away the electricity free. I don't plan to sit there and manually switch loads on and off to keep from exporting power.

    But from the info I've seen here it would be easier and more cost beneficial to just do grid tie with net metering. Also it is not as expensive or difficult as I initially thought.

      You'd be spending a LOT of money and time to avoid giving something away for free. Seems counterproductive.

      Agreed.
