Best June PV production ever!!!

I knew our alteration to the panel orientation would work out. Of course, we had the usual monthly fees that they charge everyone no matter what. Those usually range between $5 and $6 dollars a month, and go towards the yearly total when they calculate the true-up bill at the end of the year. Here is the good part.

June of 2008, we had started out with a surplus for the month of $17.34 and had a use of 14 KWh for the month that we did not produce.

For June of 2009, we had a surplus of $25.07, and our total electricity used was -13 KWh. Yep, that is negative 13 KWh.

This is the first time we have ever created more electricity than we have used. The usual surplus we have had was based on the differential charges for peak compared to non-peak. That is amazing. And, it really makes me a bit angrier at our original solar company for putting our panels facing an inferior direction for the first few years.
