A week ago today, we went live...our solar system, that is! What seemed like an eternity for the day to arrive, was over within minutes. Greeting the technician at the front door, I no sooner introduced him to the Pres and the two of them were off. Verifying all the electrical work done previously, he walked over to the "net meter", opened an adjoining box labelled SOLAR, and literally flipped a switch.
Then the three of us stood there staring at numbers and arrows. Explaining the difference between when we use energy compared to when produce it, it really sounded so simple.
Bottom line is this. Even though it was cloudy and rainy for two days when we went live, we produced power, which says to me that we should be well on our way come Spring, Summer and Fall.
So every day, rather than going outside to read the meters, I merely pull up the URL address for our system and peek at just what's (or should I say WATTS) going on?
