The meter says power is being returned to the grid. When you turn the lights on, it says she is drawing power from the grid.

@nephilim - OK, so you are getting 80% of their rated output, that makes sense. BTW you might be interested in the Open Energy monitor project. I'm in the process of building a system after a bit of a shocking bill.
If the meter says she is returning power to the grid on a moonlight night, either the meter is wrong or she doesn't understand what it is telling her. It could for instance be the system allowing any battery capacity to bleed off to the grid, so that come morning, they can be topped up by the sun. She is not generating any power from the light of the moon - that is absolutely certain!
