I have recently learned that heat is an enemy when it comes to solar power generation. With Fall weather here and Winter soon to follow for the next 5 months my solar panels will be generating power more efficiently than in Summer months. The 2 kw solar power station at 1003 Williams Lake Dr. in the Summer would generate 1.6 kw I expect that number to increase to near 2kw of solar power production. To date these solar panles have produced approx. 2000 kw @ .21 per kilowatt hour that is $420.00 saved. in just 3 months. This program has proven to me it works and the energy efficient products used will pay for themselves in time.
With Fall now here and the promise of mild weather soon to follow on our first day of 80 degrees as a high temperature I witnessed something that had been promised but never happened. The house at 1003 Williams Lake Dr. which is Solar Powered was producing more electricity than the home was consuming and the electric meter was turning backwards. This means this home was sending electricity back to the grid and a credit should show on the electric bill. The process of net metering is relatively new and I look forward to seeing my electric bill get smaller through the winter months.
