November weekly stats for this past week

November 26, 2011

Here is the solar panel output for this week.                 By the way, I have three friends getting solar panels from Sungevity soon. Yahoo for going green, saving money and helping America and the planet.

Over 600 kWh

July 28, 2011

“Yes, again over 6o0 kWh, you have made,” said Yoda. It is a good thing to see the meter turn backwards and sending electrons to Edison. Last year, my total bill for electricity was over 2200$. This year with the lease it will be less than $1200. So I did save $1000 the first year. […]

26.6 kW

July 13, 2011

My neighbor, Gordy, two houses down, made 26.6 kW on his best day in the last two weeks. Yahoo for Gordy. Yes, he beat my highest but that is ok. He has a larger system, so it is to be expected. I bet if he washed his solar panels off he would make even more. […]

After washing off the solar panels

July 11, 2011

Today was the day, I got up early and washed off my panels. I had to get up on the roof since my patio cover keeps me too far away from the highest panels to reach them with normal garden hose pressure. There were plenty of little bird droppings on them which are easy to […]

Washing solar panels and the results afterwards

June 29, 2011

Robert, my long time friend, sent me this from his solar panel output results from the web. Dear Dan, I am attaching two pictures that shows what happens when you clean the panels. Yesterday before cleaning and today after just hosing off the dust which took about 5 minutes including time to get the ladder […]

Free iPad with installation ends 6/30/11

June 24, 2011

Today is another day to appreciate and be grateful for my solar panels and all the money they have saved me over the last 9 months. I met with my plumber yesterday and he wants solar, but his electric bill is under $100 a month. Right now it doesn’t make sense for him to go […]

June 23rd solar panel results and where is my 3.5

June 23, 2011

The solar panels from Sharp are doing well, but I wonder why the peaks are not as high as the peaks at the end of May. Any suggestions are welcome. A 3.5 peak is way different than an under 3.0 peak in my opinion and I want to get back to the 3.5. Maybe if […]

First day of summer – Happy Summer Solstice!

June 21, 2011

June 21st is here, longest day of the year. Summer brings more sun to my solar panels. This is my first summer with solar panels on my roof. Yahoo! Last summer I had no panels till late August. You can check out my blog for all the videos and photos of the installation in the […]

Yes, the neighbors solar is going in!

June 16, 2011

Yes, the Sungevity solar lease is going in for my neighbor. Yes, it was a solar truck going by yesterday and today. The truck is from Temecula, Pacific Sun is the installing company. Well, I chatted with Pacific Sun’s solar installers and of course they had heard of me, the famous daily solar blogger guy. […]

A solar truck drove by me on my street today!

June 15, 2011

Ahh, the sight of a solar truck! I saw one today on my street. Maybe the neighbor is finally getting it installed. Yahoo! There will be two of us on the same street running solar, very cool. I will ask him tomorrow if he is getting his solar in finally. Ahh, the wait. I remember […]
