Cloudiest day of the summer: Aug 15, 2011

Cloudiest day of the summer: Aug 15, 2011

I am not sure if I am right, but that’s what the website for our solar electric panels (PVs) is telling me. (Not including the day Irene knocked out the power for 7 hours… that was probably a pretty cloudy day too!)

That day (Aug 15) we produced only 3440Wh of electricity. Still more than enough to power one 13W CFL lightbulb per person for 24 hours.

8 people * 13W * 24h = 2.496KWh

Whereas our running 365 day average is currently more like ~8.23MWh/365 = 22.5KWh/day
