I've brought this up before and have thought of another possible solution. If anyone has any suggestions...

This time of year as the electric heating loads in my neighborhood begin to taper off, I see a rise in AC grid voltage that occasionally prevents my system from selling. However, it's not usually both legs of my two 120 VAC grid inputs that go high. So I was wondering if there's a setting I could change on one of my 2 inverters so that the one seeing the lower voltage walmart survey is permitted to sell while the other, with the higher "prohibitive" voltage, is left not selling.

If this were possible I could funnel my excess generation to the grid through one AC leg, even when I'm normally prevented from doing so when both legs are trying to sell.

Looks like you copied and pasted my post from March 26 of this year: http://www.outbackpower.com/forum/viewt ... &hilit=Leg
