This very much depends on the kind of inverter you have. I have an SMA Sunny Boy
and it has BT from which I read periodically to monitor production.

Maybe some ACTEW meters provide some connectivity?

If all else fails then the usual power (non contact current) meter can be used.
I do not do this but will be interested to hear from anyone who does.
