    Hi all

    Been googling trying to find a good cloud forecaster. To maximise my solar pv I would like to plan appliances that draw initial or intermittent larger loads like a dishwasher, what are people using or what would one recommend

    Thanks in advance

    Sign up for Solcast. I’m still feeding data into it for my installation every 5 minutes. Still hasn’t been tuned! 🀣

    They announced a couple of months ago that they were stopping tuning for the free private accounts. It's still a good service though. Note though that the Irish weather can be really quite unpredictable, and sometimes the forecast for the next days sunshine is way off, but usually it's reasonable accurate.

    Ah right! I must have missed that announcement! Thanks!
