Here are my solar production numbers for October. 651kWh (at inverter). 648kWh (at Dominion meter). PVWatts estimate was 731kWh. Cumulative production as of Oct 31 is 6076kWh (6045 at Dominion meter). More details here.
Here are my solar production numbers for September. 705kWh (at inverter). 701kWh (at Dominion meter). PVWatts estimate was 581kWh. Cumulative production as of Sep 30 is 5425kWh (5397 at Dominion meter). More details here.

Current power bill = 4$! First payment in five months.
One of the most popular posts on this blog is my old post about gelatin in yogurt. The pictures from that post are lost but people still come and visit that regularly from searches about gelatin in yogurt.
I have been meaning to post an updated version of that page after I found that Greek Yogurt is yummier and does not contain Gelatin. But, I have been outsmarted. Manufacturers are now making “Greek style” yogurt, whatever the heck that means, and hiding the word style in fine print. See this shining example from Muller (made by Quaker, owned by Pepsi) below:
So you have been warned. What really needs to be in Yogurt is just this (picture shows Chobani yogurt):
Milk and cultures. That’s it. No corn starch. No whey powder. No gelatin. Nothing but milk and cultures. No wonder that Chobani guy is a billionaire.
No crap even in flavored varieties:
As a comparison, here is Dannon Oikos:
Here are my solar production numbers for July. 928kWh (at inverter). 923kWh (at Dominion meter). PVWatts estimate was 705kWh. Cumulative production is 3926kWh (3906 at Dominion meter). More details here.
If you are following my solar posts, you know that our solar system is doing well and producing enough power for our bills to be negative in sunny months like now. Well, imagine my surprise when I suddenly get a bill of +$95 (on 7/8) instead of about -$40.
Then when I call to complain, they take the bill down and repost a new one with a balance of $240 (on 7/11)!!! Now the bill is so completely messed up that I can’t even begin to describe the nonsense going on.
So be warned. If you get on the solar purchase program where you need two meters, be prepared for some nasty shocks. I’ll keep this post updated with my time wasting battle to be billed correctly.
Update: 7/14 4:30PM: Dominion emailed me a copy of the final corrected bill and it is -30$. Also updated the original post with previous bill dates. I also discovered that Dominion twitter is very responsive.
Here are my solar production numbers for June. 941kWh (at inverter). 936kWh (at Dominion Meter). PVWatts estimate was only 689kWh. More details on the system and its production are here. Cumulative production is 2998 kWh (2983 at Dominion’s meter).
This month Dominion has somehow been unable to bill us but if they did, it would have been negative again.
