Solar panel update

Just a quick update to say that my solar panels have been up and running for one year now. So far they have produced 858 kWh from a 1.06 kWp system. That is slightly over half my annual electricity usage, so they are certainly making an impact. It is also worth mentioning that the installers gave me a prediction of 880 kWh for the year, so they were pretty damn close - just 2% out.

While I am on the subject the panels set a new March record on Monday, producing 4.9 kWh for the day. That is normally the sort of generation I would expect in late April or May, so it just goes to show that when the sun is out, they work perfectly happily in the cold.
