Some of you seem interested in the solar info we’re discovering. For your late night pleasure . . here’s a nifty website for calculating how much energy the sun in your area can produce.
Start by putting in your zip code at the top and if you want to compare your solar power production to what we get here, put in “9” for the DC system size. Ours will be roof mount but that doesn’t usually make a whole lot of difference. Here’s what we come up with:
With a 9 kW system, we should produce 13,417 kW per year and that’s about 100% of our energy needs. We shall see!
