Have you thought of using pvoutput.org. I have my TED5000 set up going to post data there and gives great graphs, compares to pvwatts predictions, compares to other systems output as well.

Yes I do. it will not let me post the URL yet but this is my systems:
list.jsp?p=0&id=31117&sid=28507&v=3&s=1

it is a self install with limited electrician contracted. Outback Flexpower One, with step up transformer for the well (220V), self built battery box with fan less vent, and 3kW of panels. We had record snow and cold weather in January but even so almost to 1MWh for the year.

Yes. We have net metering in WV though no other incentives and my house is 100% electric. I upgraded the heat pump to high efficiency model just 4 years ago

We had our best month so far 1,827 KWh.
We will carry forward about 750 KWh I sure wish they would not zero use out June 1.
(they don't pay us for extra power on that date)
This would cover one of my winter months. The power company says they are still working on changing the zero out date.
Other solar guys what did you end up with this month?

602kWh from a 4.4kW system. Best panel = 31.2kWh, Worst panel = 26.7kWh. Average per panel = 30.1kWh.

Nice numbers. Is that your best month so far?

Not quite, I actually gathered 603kWh in August 2013, the same month my net meter was installed. (Net meter was installed at ~10AM on August 1st) I missed more than 7kWh that morning, since I didn't throw the breakers to bring the system online until ~12:30pm.

My best day, to date, is a 25.7kWh day in March.

"We had our best month so far 1,827 KWh."

That's amazing. That's more than I used for the entire year in 2012!
