Solar PV – First Impressions

Well, it has been up and running a couple of days now and so far it is looking promising.

To give you an idea, it is very dark here right now, raining hard and I cannot read without the light on in the lounge… way too dark. Yet the system is still producing 85W! OK, I accept that 85W isn’t a lot but the fact that it is producing anything at all with it so dark outside is excellent in my opinion. I would never have imagined that a Solar PV system would work at all with such low light levels.

Yesterday was the first full day of operation and we generated 0.9kWh and it was mostly cloudy but with a few spells of weak sunshine.

It looks like it will be mostly cloudy and rainy over the enxt week but I will post again when I have a mostly sunny day.
