Solar update (Fall 2016)

Another quick post just to update on our solar system.  All is well on that front, though now that it is fall/nearly winter, I’m going to have to get out there and change the angle of the solar panels for their winter orientation.  Thankfully, this is an easy job, and it helps collect the most solar energy possible due to the suns changing position in the winter sky.

Since the days have gotten shorter, we have had to run the generator again periodically to recharge the batteries – the following image summarizes our power usage and generator input for the month of October:
