Energy $$

Filed under: Solar — webmaster @ 3:38 pm

  My 2kW rooftop photo-voltaic power system was hooked up to the grid and commissioned in late March. Since then I have received three cheques from Toronto Hydro.

The cheque for April netted approximately $200, May $185 and June $175. Although this seems like an unlikely trend as summer progresses, there are many factors that could affect the sun’s exposure to the panels. June could have been more cloudy and rainy. Humidity and air pollution are also factors and this summer has been a muggy one.

I was hoping to achieve an average of $200/month through the year and this puts me a bit behind my target. Winter days are shorter and although the air is typically drier and cleaner, I anticipate winter revenue will be less. More to come.
