    retrieving a second value from a memory of a device associated with a load;

    comparing the first value with the second value to produce a comparison result; and

    alerting, by the device, a potential theft corresponding to the photovoltaic DC power source based on one of (i) the comparison result or (ii) determining that at least one value of the plurality of values does not correspond to an impedance measurement.
