An interesting year

Unseasonal weather for the first bit of the year, with June total a miserly 44 KWh delivered, around the 56 mark apriland May. Suprisingly good in February with 22 KWh, ten times january's total.

Big change in the weather this month, with more than a few days where 4 KWh has been harvested. Consumption has crept up with the more abundant free solar power, finally turned off the mains connection this month - usually it goes off April or May.

No changes made to the system this year. I added six panels last year and they were worth it during the LONG runs of poor sun conditions, allowing me to balance a 1.5 KWh a day consumption with around that amount collected.
