  • Nice curve (cloudless day)

  • Green home appraisal blues

  • Photo Tour

    We’ve been living in the house for one month and are now mostly unpacked (except for Larry’s office) so I thought it was time to give everyone the 5 cent tour.

  • January performance

    Performance for our first month in the house. Updated Feb 5.

    1 504 net usage + 369 generated = 873 kWh of total energy consumed. I goofed up earlier because I forgot the utility meter reading is a net value, not a supply value. Originally I subtracted the two values and got into a mess. Thanks Walter for spotting my error. This should be easier now that I have TED up and running.
