Here is December 2015 solar panel output graph from Sungevity. In December it rained hard on numerous days so the numbers will be less than November. Remember there are good deals for purchase, lease or pre-payment.

Hi all,

Here are the stats for November 2015. It started raining more in November and more clouds so that does reduce the total energy production for the month. Remember, you can save extra money by using my referral code 27596.

October 2015, how time flies. October 2010 was when the system and So Cal Edison were officially connected and I started seeing it on my bill. Wow what a big difference that was to see my bill go down to almost nothing. During my first year, my share of the electric bills were between $3 and $85, compared to the prior year of $50 – $300, big difference. Check out more details of my first year by checking out the archives of August 2010 to August 2011. By the way, I posted here every day for the first year with videos and photos of the equipment and installation.

In October 2015, Sungevity held a local solar celebration for all those going solar with them over the years in the local area, Inland Empire and beyond. Sungevity provided music, catered gourmet food and gourmet drink. The beer and wine were rated carbon friendly and the food was amazing. The staff from Sungevity were friendly and helpful, answering any of our questions. One of my Sungevity reps was there Courtney Hyde, coordinator of the event, with help from Neusa, Melissa and many others. Courtney had answers for all my questions and did a great job with the Sungevity team providing us with great food, drink, fun and conversation.

There were awards for those contributing to helping spread solar in the area, solar-themed games for the kids and trivia games (with prizes) for the adults. We all had a great time. I was there with Robert (mr. pip) and we had a great time.

Funny thing, the location of the event was in Etiwanda at a church where I was married at back in the 70’s. So I gave Robert a tour of the koi ponds, chapel and grounds since he did not know me back then.

It was a great afternoon and I hope they have this as a yearly event and have more of these events around the country.

Robert and I have had our solar panel system since 2010 so we are now five years into our helping the planet and helping save money. Go Solar!!!

Below is the ad for the event.

As you can see by the graphic above, my solar panel system made 582 kWh during July and that converts to saving 966 miles of emissions and enough electricity to run 167 loads of laundry. Sungevity sends these graphics to me each month to remind me of all the good my solar panels do to help the planet.
