Today was the first day we had the solar panels turned on since they were installed last week. (We were waiting for the final inspection and the orientation session on how not to get ourselves electrocuted.) Unfortunately, today was a very cloudy day with some rain (unlike the picture here) there was no sun to be had. But I have high hopes for the remainder of the summer season, especially with the cool weather we’re having now.
The system is internet-enabled, sending statistics from the inverter to an online site that will create fancy graphs and such so we’ll be able to track our “investment.” At full capacity, it will generate 3.67 kilowatts of power (18 panels total).
