MPPT: How to interpret 'consumption' in VictronConnect

Hi,


I have two 120Wp panels connected to a MPPT 75/15, and the output connected to a Sterling ProSplit R, which splits the power over three battery groups (starter, bow propellor and general).

Looking at the Victron Connect app after a few sunny days I see that I generate around 1400Wh, sounds about right. The consumption (sorry the screenshot is in Dutch) is only 30-60Wh.

Does that mean I am not actually user the power generated? The bars are fully white, indicating Bulk Charge, which I would expect as the batteries are constantly getting usage from a fridge.


Thanks in advance!

Marc

The energy consumed from the battery can't be measured by the solar charger. It only shows the energy consumed from the "Load" output.
