Re: 50 MWh!!!

Thu Mar 05, 2015 9:37 am

If I follow your path of 3.5 years I'll be just at 50mwH but I've got a little something else now! :D

A whole garage filled with Unirac, Fronius inverter and all the trimmings and all the goodies to hook it up.. and a NICE BIG pallet of Solarworld 245 mono's that are supposed to be delivered here shortly. So is 90140 and Phil.. we all went in together.

So I'm adding another 3kwH to my setup..(Remember 14.3mwH is my 1year output)

I really wanted to do Enphase but they are too damn pricey now. Even QueenBee tried to help out! ;)

Exciting! It's been too long since I've installed any solar PV. A year since my last upgrade and now I'm producing more than I consume so I've having to work hard to convince family friends that they need PV too.

I'm at 47.6 MWh -- 37.6 MWh on the system I installed in 2004, and 10.0 MWh combined on two sets of Enphase-connected ones (see link in my sig). I figure I'm currently at about 11 or 12 MWh/yr with 38 panels total (the 20 old ones are less efficient and smaller than the 18 Enphase-connected ones).

After 17 months, 11 days, the system has now crossed over 75 MWh:

Since the last 25 MWh took 17.5 months with only one summer, I expect the next 25 MWh to take about 16 months, meaning the system will cross 100 MWh in early September next year.

Just hit 9MWH after 667 days of operation. Works out to be 75% of my total energy usage. Many $16 bills of essentially basic charges. One $1 bill with so much sell-back.

Right on schedule, the system crossed the 100 MWh threshold today:

We should be crossing 200 MWh around July 2023.

Love this thread.
My PV array is modest like dgpcolorado's and new to boot but it is over-producing our home and EV consumption.

Just like 90% of the residential buildings in the country should.
