2013 Was the best year so far from my South, South-East solar panel array in what has been and interesting and enlightening Solar Panel Journey. Although the year started a little slow with the first three months down considerably compared to January, February and March 2012, it was then boosted with a very good summer of electricity generation!
This record year was achieved with some great figures during the warmer months including July which surpassed any expectations and broke the previous highest monthly yield by some way.
The year ended 50 kWs up on the previous twelve-months 🙂
I had thought by now after having my solar panel system for over two years that I’d probably experienced all the bests and lows. However on the 23/12/13 I had my first zero generation day 🙁 And before you ask – was the system at fault, I can safely say everything was working fine but the weather was dreadful – one of the most bleakest and dimmest days I’ve seen for years!
Even with the lowest generation day possible within a month of extremely wet weather December still ended on par with the previous year. This final month of 2013 generated a solar electricity yield total of 60.45 kWs.
The final December solar generation figures are:
