Solar Performance - November 2016

Continuing last month's positive trend, my panels generated a bit more power than expected this month. Granted it was less than last year, but it seems as though last year benefited from a few unusually sunny days toward the end of the month.

In other positive news my electricity use was down noticeably compared to last year and roughly even with last month. I'm not sure exactly why, but it's likely due to the significantly warmer weather this year. The temperature averaged 51 degrees (F) this year and only 44 degrees (F) last year.

Individual panel performance had a bit more variation than last month but was still relatively consistent. One panel, A6, took a bit of a break for a couple of hours on election day. Can you blame it?
