Why do we love sunshine?
How much solar power do we have?We've got a 2.4kW system - which is as big as our roof space would allow for, which means in full blazing sun we make 2.4kW. So an hour of sunshine makes 2.4kWh - in the middle of the day when all the panels are in full sun.
So how much energy (power) do we make?On a day like today - a glorious blue sky summer day we typically generate a little over 14kWh.

What do our power bills look like?
The really nice thing is our solar system will have paid for itself in about three and half years from now. Which we think is $6,000 well spent!
