Solar panels

Our solar panels got turned on mid-day yesterday for the first time.  Today the system was generating 26kw at the sun's peak.  SoCal Edison limits the theoretical production capacity of the panel array to 80% of your average annual bill.  If we had known that, we would've run our bill up the previous year by running our A/C all summer long instead of sweltering in the house to avoid using electricity!

Update:  at 0500 this morning in the waning moonlight, the array was generating .003kw of juice.  Who knew that moonlight was that potent!
