In September 2013 we installed solar panels on our house.

We started recording our production on October 7th 2013. During the calendar year 2014 we produced 4.209 mega watts which is just over prediction for a year, our best day was June 10th when we made 27 kw. We have learned a lot about the sun and how weather and time of day and year affect its strength, which for us affects our power production. We also try to arrange our power consumption to fit in with the higher production of power to use the maximum amount of homemade power.

Here are our production totals.

This month was a difficult one for us solar people due the the amount of cloud cover on many dull days.
