We’ve had our home solar energy system for just over six months, and have now experienced both the best and the worst the sun has to offer homeowners.
Our system was installed just before the Summer Solstice in June. During the summer months there were a handful of long and sunny days when our system generated over 50 kWh of energy, which helped us build up a nice bank of solar credits to offset future bills.
In recent weeks, however, our energy production has plunged as we neared the Winter Solstice. In late December, a combination of limited sunlight and snowy weather meant we produced less than 1 kWh of power on six of seven days.
