West unit solar panels have been up and running for 1 full year today May 8, 2013!
May 2012 to May 2013 energy generation and use numbers:
Total energy generation: 5012 kWh (exceeded expectations by more than 400 kWh)
Total energy used: 3223 kWh (average 8.8 kWh/day)
Annual excess generation: 1789 kWh (enough electricity to power a Nissan Leaf more than 6100 miles). This is 56% more electricity than we needed to achieve net zero.
Ella and Randy are pleased with the net positive results!
