I’ll try to keep this page updated every month with our solar production and compare it with the PVWatts estimate of expected generation. For more details about our solar system (6.93kW of panels, 6kW inverter), visit my blog post about finding solar installers in Charlottesville. For a more detailed financial analysis of solar production in Virginia, see my post on that at my other blog. There is a slight discrepancy between the solar inverter numbers and the dominion solar generation meter, which also I’ll keep track of.
|Month||PVWatts Estimate||2014 Generation (Inverter)||2014 Generation (Solar Meter)|
*System went live March 19. So March production numbers represent a partial month.
April 2014 was the first full month of production.
Cumulative Production as of Aug 31 2014: 4720kWh at inverter (4696 at solar meter)
