Solar Update

We generated our 4th megawatt yesterday. Here’s a running tally of the number of days it’s taken to generate each megawatt.

You can tell by the number of days that late September and October were very cloudy, not to mention the shortening of the day light hours. As the days get cooler we’ve been using more electricity in the form of leaving the lights on to keep the space warm overnight. Since we’ve installed all the insulation, the interior temperatures have not dipped below 58 degrees.

Here’s for hoping there’s a bit more sun and few less clouds for the month of November.
