South, South-East statistics table shows that during the month of July 2012 the 2kW Sanyo PV array yielded 245.44kWs of electricity, averaging 7.92kWs per day.
The East-West Split statistics table shows that during the month of July 2012 the 2.64kW SolarEdge PV array yielded 274.60kWs of electricity, averaging 8.86kWs per day.
June 2012 should have been a good solar generating month, however I can’t help but feel a little robbed after experiencing the wettest June on record and one of the dullest too! Having solar PV panels gives you an added perception of the weather conditions around you, especially if like me you are in your first year of solar harvesting. You think only of all the sunny months you have experienced over the years – not even a flicker enters your mind of all the poor ones which have gone before and I’m sure that there were many!
With June also incorporating the longest day I was hoping to see some more yield records broken. We may still see these statistics reach new heights in July or even August but for now I can only reflect on what could have been. Anyway, I’m still, although less eager this month, going to keep on posting good or bad solar PV generation statistics for my South, South-East 2 kWh Sanyo solar panel array and my father’s 2.64kWh Sunpower East-West Split system.
The South, South-East statistics table shows that during the month of July 2012 the Sanyo solar panel array yielded 202.98kWs of electricity from the sun, averaging 6.77kWs per day. This is a little less than what was achieved in April.
The East-West Split statistics table shows the system fairing a little better with a yield of 231.26kWs, averaging 7.71kWs per day. By comparison this is a little better than what was achieved in April – the system continuing to benefit from the higher sun throughout the day and late into the evenings.
South, South-East statistics table shows that during the month of May 2012 my 2kW Sanyo PV array yielded 281.91kWs of electricity, averaging 9.09kWs per day. Also on the 26th May the system generated its highest daily yield so far of 14.77kWs.
The East-West Split statistics table shows a great set of figures for the month with a total solar panel yield of 310.20kWs, averaging 10.01kWs per day. It also saw a new highest solar daily yield of 14.47kWs from the SunPower E19 solar panels.
April 2012, although a wet month, saw my South, South-East generation solar statistics continue to increase. March as reported provided a real kick start to the harvesting figures and April has seen another good month. I did feel however that there would have been a bigger growth than that achieved for the month, but I guess it was the wettest April for years and the last week of March provided such a boost!
I can’t complain with any of the recent harvest figures because my yield rates are now exceeding my overall expectations from what I experienced at the start of my journey.
The East-West Split system is also continuing to increase its yield and is looking like being quite a productive system especially now that the longer days are here with the bright sunny evening skies.
I’ve included both solar system statistics tables in this month’s blog report to view and compare.
South, South-East statistics table shows that during the month of April 2012 my Sanyo solar panel array yielded 210.32kWs of electricity from the sun, averaging 7.01kWs per day. I also have a new highest solar panel daily yield of 12.87kWs.
East-West Split statistics table shows that during the month of April 2012 the solar panel array yielded 207.32kWs of electricity, averaging 6.91kWs per day. It also saw a new highest solar daily yield of 11.41kWs from the SunPower solar panels.
Further to yesterdays statistic’s report for the South, South-East array, The East-West split 2.64kW solar panel system also had a much better month generating over 186kWs with a daily average of over 6kWs.
The solar generation figures within the chart below also shows the highest daily yield so far of 10.18kWs on 26th March.
March Solar Panel Generation Statistics
Late again, but here are the east-west solar array split’s February generation statistics. These stats are from the 2.64kW system, which employs SunPower 240kW E19 Series solar panels with SolarEdge power optimisers.
I expect that some of the more keener viewers of this site will have spotted that I have not reported on part of January. I was reporting on each month from the installation date. However from this month on to make solar generation statistics a little clearer I have started by reporting by calendar month. This will make comparison against the south, south-east system easier to compare. I will try to add the missing January statistics later.
The electricity generation statistics are for the period from February 1st to 29th. During this second reported month the system harvested just over 91.2 kW of electricity, averaging 3.15 kW per day. The chart also shows the highest day of generation at 6.71 kW.
