What can I Expect from Solar Generation?

Well hopefully it’s too soon to tell. But, as promised I can now publish my first few day’s solar panel electric generation statistics. I don’t know how this compares with other solar array homes in the area or indeed anywhere else. If anybody reading this has any comparable data for these dates from sites in Devon or anywhere else in the UK, please post a comment. It would be good to evaluate at this stage of my journey!

After these first few days I can only think or fret! that the average created here of 2.16 kw per day would take approximately 26 years to repay the investment at today’s feed in tariff rates. That’s without any faults or replacements during the period. In other words, going on these first few day’s figures I could only advise that you avoid a solar panel investment like the plague!

This graph shows my solar pv generated electric over 4 days from 21/11/11 to 27/11/11.

First Few Day's Solar Generation Figures

Now before anybody goes away and does something silly or cancels an order for their solar module system – please remember this is only my first recorded statistics for my system, a small 2kWh system in the bleak mid winter … I’m thinking this anyway!

On cheerier note – how did those Morcambe and Wise lyrics go

Bring me Sunshine, in your smile,
Bring me Laughter, all the while,
In this world where we live, there should be more happiness,
So much joy you can give, to each brand new bright tomorrow,
