jim.. you are too kind... thank you for those words.. getting close to the 'record' bud!! Howz about that huh?/ You all might get the winter of a lifetime (til next year).. two dreary days now.. snow on the overnight.. (things are) "wacky as a bedbug" one departed friend would say...still alive in me with that I guess... too bad jay is so busy...he has no time to offer a solar pv banter.. one has to goad him into it! will update after the 'big dump'.. hope the snowboss* shovel can move it.. (but hey... that's me pushing!!)

jimmy... this is why I have no sympathy for these folks .. is this right? or wrong? http://www.courierpostonline.com/story/news/2015/03/02/sandy-victims-hook-higher-utility-poles/24244879/

I'm off a bit below .. we consume almost 900 kW hrs a month.. I guess with a full out Ev that could go to about 1500 or so....

by Joeski1  Feb 28, 2015

looks like a 509 for system 1 with another 131 off system 2... that 509 would put it in a tie for the 2nd best Feb in the past 5..(w/2011).. '13 is worst @ 403, '14 @ 437, and '12 (best) @ 537...I think next month will be our tipping point to higher production than use.. we consume about 800 a month so 640+/- may sound like a lot.. it's still 160 under our average power diet.. more snow?? we get dusting/ rain or freezing rain.... How many more days did that gopher resign us too?

by Joeski1  Feb 28, 2015

Jim.. looks like we beat last Feb... not by much.. but we did...panels are clear here .. 39 kW hr yesterday....

Oh, I Googled something like Boston electricity and it seemed like there were a lot of choices. I can't believe the snow you have had there. The middle of Feb. last year, we had an inch of snow and that was the first snow in 5 years. On the other hand, I can drive 25 mi. across town and then 20+ miles up our 9,400 ft mountain and usually go skiing. Not last year though because of the drought they missed opening for the first time in ~50 years.

I have an answer to your snow problems. Take down your PV panels, send them to me, I'll tell Tucson Electric Power that the additional kWhs are yours. They can notify the electric power company that you use there in Boston to expect a few billion electrons. WoW, do you need a few more companies for one town? When the panels are going gangbusters in June, I'll come visit my electrons. LOL!
