Yes, another day to rest from work. It is rainy today so the graph tomorrow will be quite interesting. We had monsoons and thunder today.

Here are the results for Aug. 26th, over 100 degrees again today. I can’t believe it has been one year since going solar. I remember that it took one month for the electric company to approve my turning it on. So when you hook up to the grid know that it takes time. For you […]

Le Tour de France

July 5, 2011

Every year at this time I am watching the bike race in France for three weeks. It reminds me of summer and our trip to Europe a few years back. France is such a beautiful country it is great seeing it from the bikers point of view along with the helicopter shots. The race is […]

My dad had a good birthday today, 92 wow! My neighbor got his solar and SCE approval, I think. I will ask him. Maybe he will send over some of his solar graphs to share with everyone with his new 4.2 kW system.
