Default Charlotte, NC?

Curious to see who on here is around Charlotte.

I'm currently working on a ground-source heat pump project.

Last year I installed a 56kWdc solar array on our building.

I've also done some Raspberry Pi-based automation in the building.

Any other hands-on "experimenters" in the area?

I am outside Greenville SC. Not that far from you.
I did DIY 12.5 KW but that is not even close to the size as yours.

How much power have you made so far?

38305.642 KWH as of 3 seconds ago. We interconnected in June, but didn't get some kinks worked out (loose connection on the utility transformer, for one) that were causing us grief until October-ish.

Right now, we're cranking out about 200kWh a day.

How many watt panels did you use? What kind of inverter are you using?
200 KW is pretty sweet.
Last year my average was 53.54 Kwh
