Solar Array

Our new solar array has been up for over a month now and has performed to expectations. It consists of 12 x 265 W panels and is rated at 3.12 kW. It has roughly 3 times the output of our previous set of panels and not surprisingly has meant almost no back up generation except for two days with 8 in the house and full cloud cover each day just after Christmas ( av power use 8.5 kWh per day,

normal av use 6.0 kWh). At this stage, a replacement wind generator is not required. The other good thing is that with the panels on the shed roof hopefully bad weather will be less of a worry !

Last week I took our guests down to Pebble Beach and showed them where to snorkel and we looked in two Little Penguin burrows that both had moulted feathers in them.
