We're generating electricity!

We're quite excited by the fact that, as I write, we are generating about 2200 kilowatts of electricity due to the installation of our new solar system. This is on south coast GB on a blustery day, so not constantly sunny by any means.
It would work so well in Turkey that I wonder if anyone there has solar to generate electricity.

Re: We're generating electricity!

I have never understood why Turkey hasn't tapped into the power of sun/solar apart from just heating water!

Re: We're generating electricity!

We also run our heating system from a solid wood log burner giving us more hot water than we can use plus 12 hot radiators - and grow our own veg! Yes its 'the Good Life' here in Hastings.

Re: We're generating electricity!

Saw an advert where solar panels are installed for free. The electric generated is free to use. Company makes money by claiming for electric generated from goverment.

Re: We're generating electricity!

Just spoke to my father in law who had 14 panels fitted on July 15th, his system faces absolutely south, and he lives east of Edinburgh

To date he has generated 886 kilo watt hours and netted 381.00 plus some free electricity

His system can generate 3.29 kw, although the inverter is 3 kw, he is generating about 11 kwh per day during the peak period for sunshine.

Just a question from a simple man,
Is this output per day, per month or per year?
