I just got my solar energy production report for June. I produced nearly a megawatt. I also had about 3/4 of a ton of carbon offset. ??
Yeah, I can get a little geeked out about that stuff. ?‍♂️

I am with you on taht one, last week mine gave me just over a 30% p.a. return, but winter and cloudy days will balance it out a bit. Currently generating 50 kw per day and exporting up to 45 to the national grid.

Champion. That is the sort of thing I love to hear. Also a plus that you track it. Any goals must be measurable.

Way cool!

Hi - this is great.

In some of your comments you mention having 20 panels. Do you happen to know the power rating on each panel? If you produced nearly 1 MWh in a month, I'm going to wild guess you might have something like 5 kw total rated power (about 250 watts per panel) but I don't know what is the typical rating of watts per panel these days. I have about 2.7 kW across 16 panels, in my yard, not all the same kW rating, some about 10, some about 13 years old.

What type of inverter do you have?

I can’t seem to find my paperwork right now so I don’t know my per panel rate. All are the same & the company told me their supplier just released a more efficient model just before they ordered mine. So I’m guessing they were state of the art (at least for this company) about a year and a half ago.
And don’t know about the inverter. I did mine the easy/lazy way and just let the company I worked with figure it all out.

I just remembered, each panel has a microinverter incorporated into the panel & they’re parallel. So if one goes TU it doesn’t take down my whole array.

@Plamon Yes, I intend to ask my installer about this in a year or two, but I think my system is committed to a different path. The thing is, I want to add a small amount from another part of the house. I'm not sure what the issues are in this.


I also have solar (but only produce several kilowatts). My one big question is how much carbon did it take to produce the solar system?
