Solar chart

August 16, 2011

Hi all, still busy teaching everyday. Here is my solar panel electrical output chart for 8/16/11. The peak was not as high as the other day, must be haze or something that keeps it down. Comments? Fifteen more days for you to get that $1000 for signing up at Sungevity.com and doing an iQuote with […]

Today’s solar panel results edging to 500 kWh, cloudy today off and on.

Over 1500 kWh made so far in 3 months…

December 2, 2010

Not bad for my little 3.7kw system, is what a friend said the other day. Yes, 1500 plus kilowatts so far 90 days. Yahoo! I was invited to be a reference on a large solar installation. My notoriety is picking up? BusinessWeek, PBS, GWU, Planet Forward, and more. Interesting. My average for November was 17 […]

11/2/10 graphs

November 3, 2010

Remember that the first 3 days of going solar for me were having the system off some days  and on some days till it was in operation, so the 70 days of operation should probably say 67 days which is more accurate. It has been a blast so far. Still making 18 or 19 kWh […]

QA inspection 10/28/10

October 29, 2010

Well, I had the Quality Assurance inspection as required by Sungevity, Justin Cox, the Technical Account Representative for this area, came by and took pictures of the system and made sure it was all good. He also updated my Kaco Inverter panel with a newer version, I think 2.05. So my system was down for […]
