Hi Mark and thanks for your comment. My Data Logger is not the best solution to monitor the energy harvested with a PV installation because it creates relatively high energy losses. To have accurate values and low self-consumption use a current sensor according to the maximum power levels of your installation and a voltage divider.I have never worked with displays but it should not be a problem to add it to the circuit and modify the Arduino code. Take a look at the this Arduino Energy Meter www.instructables.com/id/ARDUINO-ENERGY-METER/. I think it can suit your needs after little modification.Monitoring the state of charge (SOC) of your battery is not simple. There are many good articles on the web describing different methods, more or less accurate and sophisticated. If you want to p...

If you want to protect your batteries against overcharge or deep discharge, the easiest way is to monitor the battery voltage.Please share your work as instructable.

Good idea! I made it with a 150mm PVC-U pipe without pockets. To protect the strawberry plants I used strip cultivation, so I added lettuces and chives. This picture has been taken 4 weeks after planting. Hope it will survive next winter.

Thank you for commenting! Yet I have not tried other applications for the data logger, but it will be easy to use it with other/more sensors. Just make sure not to overstep the Arduino analog input voltage of 5V. It´s a quite interesting subject, isn´t it? Right now I am working on an Arduino Buck converter with mpp tracker for my solar panel. If you are interested in Arduino solar charger circuits using voltage and current sensors, take a look at the very good instructable from deba168 https://www.instructables.com/id/ARDUINO-SOLAR-CHARGE-CONTROLLER-Version-30/ Have fun!
