How Much Electricity Can We Generate?

  • The PV tiles can generate up to a maximum of 1.92 kW.
  • The actual output depends on the amount of sunshine and daylight hours in any given period.
  • At 10.50 am on 30th March 2007 our solar roof was connected and started generating immediately.
  • In the first year to 31st March 2008 we generated 1,347 kWh (units), around 60% of our annual electricity consumption.
  • Our solar panels have continued to perform well to the present time, generating between 1,250 and 1,350 kWh (units)per annum, most of which has been exported to the local network.
  • We passed a significant milestone on 3rd August 2014 when the total generated exceeded 10 megawatt hours (10,000 units), enough to supply a typical household for 4 to 5 years.
  • Look at the meter below to check the grand total of units produced to date.
  • Regrettably, our plans to install additional generating capacity in the form of a domestic wind turbine were halted for the time being by the demise of the manufacturer, Windsave.
