A blog all about the 3kWp PV Solar panels installed in Nov 2011 in Kent UK by Solar Advanced Systems. Follow the ongoing performance and how much solar power we generate over the next few months as well as the problems and solutions we encounter along the way such as solar panels electric meter going backwards.
We are registered with British Gas for our FIT payments and our roof is SSW facing. We have 14 x Sungrid 215W solar panels and Sunny Boy 3000HF inverter.
Today started with a lovely sunrise. I managed to capture the sun rising reflected in the panels on the roof, one of the benefits of the Velux windows right in the middle of the array! After yesterday it was good to see some sun and get confirmation that the lack of generation was due to the extreme cloud cover rather than a fault in the solar PV system.
Today was more back to normal with 7.7kWh generated and the latest generation time so far. The panels were still generating electricity at 16:45 compared to latest times of 16:30 in January and 15:50/15:55 in November/December.
