My panels arrived yesterday and I wanted to test my setup today. The charge controller green light is on. In fact, it was on when I opened the box and that seemed strange to me. Any, I inserted a Watt meter inline between the battery connections on the charge controller. The source side is to the battery and the load side is to the battery connections on the charge controller. I also have an 1100 watt AC DC inverter attached to the battery. The watt meter is not registering anything to do with amps even with a 110 device plugged into the inverter. How can I tell if the solar panels are actually charging the battery? The watt meter is only registering the actual battery voltage. Thank you very much.
