Solar calculator

We have some more hardware on the roof, no panels noted but it was dark when I checked last night. I've checked the local weather to guess the likelihood of continued work today. Our favorite site for this is Wunderground. I noted today they have a solar calculator. If the link does not work the calculator is along the left hand side of the site.

For this location and configuration, you will get about 5 kWhr/m2/day of energy from the sun.

The following is a breakdown of energy by month:

Energy generated per month (in KWhr/m2)

Average daily energy by month (in kWhr/m2/day) 126
