12.5 kW array we generated 1,823 kWh June 2017. This was the lowest June we have had.

We made 141 more kWh than we used. My oldest son is learning to drive in the Volt so we charged the car more this month than normal.

June 2017= 1,823 kWh
June 2016= 1,952 kWh
June 2015= 1,994 kWh
June 2014= 1,995 kWh

Highest one day June 2017 = 77.4 kWhs
We have banked 886 kWh for the winter.
Our system lifetime production is 79.1 MWh

Other solar producers show us your numbers for June when you have them.

June was an good month with production from a 12.7 kW array being 2144 kWhrs. May was a bit higher with 2170 kWhrs.

No electric bill for those months (and July as well).

Am really looking at a Bolt and adding another sixteen 270 W panels to my forty eight panel existing system. That should add enough juice for my future EV driving needs.

We now have 71,793 solar powered EV miles on our Chevy Volt. Even with gas prices low the savings really adds up.

You cannot get much cleaner driving than EV and solar power.

This is my power cost for the last two years $100.88. This includes power to charge my Chevy Volt 36,000 EV miles during this time.
This is an export form my power Company. we can not off set the meter charge but they pay us wholesale for our extra power once a year.

I'll be getting my system online this month as soon as my power provider installs the net meter, so soon I'll have production stats for my 6.38 kW system in Utah.

Post a picture of your install.
I look forward to your production numbers.
