How and why we built an internet connected solar panel

Thanks for sharing your experiences!

I wonder, could the sensor not be manipulated to show more generated electricity than actually produced? That’s why usually you have a centralized database: one entity to confirm the transaction or, in this cas, the the size of the installation. For a decentralized system you would need to have some proof of work, or a proof of solar production here.

I just came across SolarCoin, but they also need a 3rd party (institution) to verify proof of work. And of course that party will maintain it’s own centralized database.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
