Properly computing the net kWh

I installed a V.3 meter at my house and am extracting the NET kWh to graph as my solar system pushes power out and as my house consumes power. The meter has a "Total kWh" register and a "Reverse kWh" register. Based on the definitions at "https://help.ekmmetering.com/support...

Re: Pulse input debounce? (Omnimeter Pulse v.4)
