Does the dashboard view show actual Solar PV Wattage?

Dashboard showing a very low PV wattage, and its a clear sunny day.

Is this because the MPPT controller is throttling the energy input into the batteries?

Running a 48V system, AGM battery bank, Mppt 150/100

Yes, your mppt has moved into the Float charge state.

Thanks, is there a way to display actual PV wattage before the mppt throttles the input wattage from the PV panels?

After the charger has changed states the best you can do is to look up the history in VRM advanced tab. PV watts going into the mppt is not available, however watts from the mppt to battery is. (and other stuff)
