Solar Array 4 Years After Installation
This blog about the installation of our solar energy system is from when we first put the array in. Since the installation, our system has produced 50,806 Mega Watt hours and has saved 86,373 lbs. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
Our total generating capacity is 9.7 KW. Today we are generating a varying amount of energy per hour as it is a cloudy day. The Sun came out a few minutes ago and we are now generating 7.095 KW.
We have been running on solar power now since December of 2010. I encourage folks to go solar not only because of the great deal on the monthly bill, but because it is a clean way of making power right here in our own backyard, and hopeful decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.
