This morning at 8am the solar people knocked at our door to install the solar panels.
What a long wait it has been! Here is the roof at lunchtime.And here it is in the early afternoon. All done. We are already producing power. It is very exciting. I have already zipped out into the backyard a few times to look at the panels. Beautiful!
The inverter is just outside the front door and shows how much energy we are producing. Neat!
It is a 3kW installation and should cover quite a bit of our needs. As we are on rainwater, the electric pump kicks in every time you turn on the tap or flush the toilet, to pump the water from the rainwater tank into the house. So this alone uses quite a bit of power. The home office is set up for 2 businesses and needs a bit of power, too. But we have also implemented quite a few measures to save energy.
Anyway, gotta dash, must have another look at the panels and the inverter. :)
