Sun, Dough

Well, on the heels of the worst day yet is one of the best days yet. We generated 44.9 kwh, met all of our own needs, and exported (sold) 6 kwh out onto the grid.

I think these last two days are a microcosm of what solar power can and can't do. It can't be relied on as a primary source of power but at the same time, it's a shame on days like this to waste all that energy that drips down the sides of our houses and disappears.
