Emonpi POE

My first post so apologies if it's in the wrong place or the answer is elsewhere.

I've recently installed solar pv and am interested in setting up some monitoring. The emonpi looks perfect...
Except the 5v usb power requirement. Is it possible to add PoE (Power over Ethernet) to an emonpi?

Would it fit in the box / be an easy enough mod?


many thanks

Re: Emonpi POE

Poe would add a significant cost to the emonPi, I agree it would be nice to have. It can be added with a poe shield but it wont fit in the case: https://www.pi-supply.com/product/pi-poe-switch-hat-power-over-ethernet-for-raspberry-pi/?v=79cba1185463

​Or roll your own: http://www.instructables.com/id/PiPoE-powering-a-Raspberry-Pi-over-Ethernet/

A power point for the AC-AC adapter to provide and AC voltage reference is highly desirable for accurate Real Power monitoring.
