update Nearing 15,000 KWhs Produced

It happend a bit sooner than I expected. We are now at 15,148 KWh produced. If we had the correct orientation all along I wonder what our total would have been now? I could figure it out, but it would not change anything.

  1. Hi Richard,

    Thanks for sharing your information.
    If you said by making the entire array SouthWest facing you gained 15kWh of output for the month. That comes to .5 kWh per day, or 6 high output hours. It seems still short of what one might expect, since SouthEast facing panels gets small portion of afternoon sun. Please run our benchmark website and do
    a quick check by recording what your inverter say --KWac, KWdc, Vdc, Idc, if you can. Our free benchmark site is at
    It had demonstrated to be within a couple of percent accurate for recent installations. We are eagerly soliciting input from visitors so we can improve its user interface and some other features. Please note it is in alpha & beta phase and not all links are functioning except the basic benchmark predictor. I would like to hear what you found. If you should have any question, please don't hesitate to call or email me.
    Thanks and May the Sun always warm your face and your panels.
