Solar Day 1

One day in, we are very pleased with the solar panels. Today we generated 33 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity and used 15, putting the remaining 18 back into the grid (not to mention about fifty cents into our pocket, in addition to the two dollars or so that we saved by not paying for the electricity we used). Although we haven't needed air conditioning over the last few days (and won't need to turn on the heater for at least another couple of weeks), 33 kWh is just about enough to cover our electric needs on the hottest summer day, so it should be no problem to cover all of our usage pretty much all year.

So far, so good.
