Bar graphs vs. line graphs

October 2, 2011

Well, for now I must get used to the new solar bar graphs till the line graphs come back. I am working on getting the line graphs back since they provide more usable data than the bar graphs do. The bar graphs are good for the monthly and yearly charts. The weekly charts were more […]

End of the month solar stats

September 30, 2011

Well it is that time of the month again, the solar graphs of the totals for each day for the month of September, 2011. No, I did not get to 600 kWh. Sad. This month had too many monsoons and cloudy days to make it to that level. Here are the new graphs, oh well. […]

Monsoons and solar panels

August 1, 2011

The monsoons that came on 7/31/11 in the morning were a good thing. – We needed the rain. – The monsoons washed our solar panels. – The monsoons washed Roberts panels and Gordon’s panels.
