Net Returned to Grid Sensor

Trying to figure out how I can create a sensor for “Net returned to the grid” monthly data from the Energy dashboard card. Any thoughts?

Net Power:

  - name: Net Power
    state_class: measurement
    unit_of_measurement: W
    device_class: power
    icon: mdi:transmission-tower
    state: >
      {% set production = states('sensor.envoy_SERIAL_current_power_production') | int %}
      {% set consumption = states('sensor.envoy_SERIAL_current_power_consumption') | int %}
      {{ (production - consumption) }}
    availability: >
        {{ states('sensor.envoy_SERIAL_current_power_consumption') | is_number and states('sensor.envoy_SERIAL_current_power_production') | is_number }}

Net Energy:

platform: integration
name: Grid Net Energy
source: sensor.net_power
unit_prefix: k
unit_time: h
method: left

You can use net power with apex charts too to create something similar to Enphase power graph as well.

And make a Helper → Utility Meter and use the sensor.grid_net_energy as the source with net meter enabled
