Although you have probably found a solution it might be useful for others....I bought a unit sold at Selling control units that monitor control solar wind water generated electricity. I bought their TP-S610A starter kit (they call it a Renewable Energy Monitoring Unit or their REMU I).
It monitors how much energy my house is consuming and how much power I am getting from my solar panels or any other renewable energy source. I've set it up so it automatically switches on my 1kw immersion heater (and up to 2 other appliances) when enough surplus energy is being generated.
It is only £199. I think it will pay for itself as well, although it may take a year or two to get my money back. In the mean time it will make sure that my home is not consuming anymore power than I want to. The control unit will also record my home’s energy production and consumption and download it to a pc.
