    Would it make a difference to you if the doctor at the pharmacy was paid a hourly wage similar to the hospital/clinic, not the small fee the pharmacy charges? Maybe the pharmacies make their money on the prescriptions.

    Here's a link to salaries paid to all kinds of employees by Farmacias Similares--everything is included, from the guys who dance in Sr. Simi's costumes to doctors.   https://www.indeed.com.mx/cmp/Farmacias-Similares/salaries

    Thank you for the link. 

    The point I was trying to make is: Yes, many doctors work for a fee but there are many that work for a salary or both (different jobs).

  2. It has been so much fun reading the comments here. Several have been good points but others seemed to be guesses.  

    You may ask, "How does this SOB know?". Well, my nephew and several of his friends are doctors that either work or had worked for a pharmacy.

    Don't assume that they are bad doctors. There are several reasons why they work there.

    Don't assume that the pharmacy is the only place that they work. For example: My nephew also worked at a clinic and hospital while he was working at the pharmacy. He was not alone. Others do too.

    It doesn’t taste the same Tiny. One is not a substitute for the other

    No it tastes like " water, soybean oil, high-fructose corn syrup, vinegar, modified corn starch, eggs, salt, natural flavor, mustard flour, potassium sorbate, spice, and dried garlic".

  4. Does your meter display looks like these? Notice the 1.8.0 and 2.8.0 in the right corner.


    If your meter is like the ones in these pics, the 1.8.0 display is what you used from CFE and 2.8.0 display is the net amount sent to CFE. Net amount is the amount your solar panels generate minus what your house used from the panels.

    Hi all, many thanks for your recommendations.  I took photos of the meter a few days ago and again just now.  Maybe it's too much peroxide from my hair coloring that has soaked into my brain, but I'm not seeing quite what is described in your responses.  The meter flashes 3 different sets of numbers.  The first set looks like all 000000  or all  8888888.  Then, it shows 14588 and next it shows 23309.  Today, it shows 14582 and then 23389.

    Based upon this, can someone help me understand what I'm seeing?  Apparently I need some "man-spraining", LOL.


    Valerie  :)

    What would help is if there are  codes on the pics/meters, like 1and 11 or 1.8.0 and 2.8.0.

    Very easy to check, the low tech way works too!....., grab a pen and paper and a calendar.....

    Take the total solar production in kWh for any period of time (even if there is no online monitoring, this should be available from the inverter display panel or a separate small digital solar production meter)

    Add the "use from CFE" (the 1.8.0 CFE meter figure, for the same period), >>> let's say it was 400 kWh

    Subtract the "sent to CFE" (the 2.8.0 figure) >>> let's say it was 200 kWh

    This result is the total consumption, of the time period. 

    So now you know 2 things:

    1 - what the system produced during the time period (let's say it shows 600 kWh for 2 months which is a CFE billing period for residential)

    2 - what the total consumption was during the time period (the 600, + 400, -200 = 800 kWh) and the net billed from CFE would be 200 kWh or about 200 to 250 pesos.

    You can do this for just a couple of days, the same way, and then extrapolate out from there.

    How can I get my house usage from two months ago? Not what CFE says.

    we will still need to have that service call

    Yes or No.

    Once you change the internet provider, your network and password will. If you have an app and know how to use it, you can change it yourself.  If you don't, you will need a service call.

  8. All this talk about the reporting of the solar plant and how to connect it to the web is fine but doesn't address OP's problem.  The OP said that the system was checked out.

    The OP needs a reporting of the net (generation vs usage) by billing period from their system.  So that can be compared with CFE has. What will provide that? 

    The OP needs to address was the system was designed too small, was an increase of usage, reporting problem to CFE, etc.
