September 2009 PV & EV Report


On Tuesday, September 22nd Autumn officially arrived at 2:18 p.m., Pacific time. Fall is here, the trees are getting decked out in glorious colors and birds are starting their migration. Halloween and cooler temperatures are just around the corner.

The days have become shorter, our PV system generates noticeably less energy than it did this summer. This month we generated 402 kWh, compared to the 618 of July.

Sept EV Driving
Distance 436 miles
Energy Use est. 305 kWh

Sept still had about 100kWh of surplus energy generation.

For the year we have generated 3353kWh and my EV driving has used 2332kWh. This leaves a surplus of 1256kWh for driving on sunshine through the winter months.
