Summer is here!

Friday it was 30+ Celsius. Saturday, as the first real day of summer, saw the heat topping out at 32 Celsius, the hot tub filled with warm water, the day spent outside, children playing on the lawn with the garden hose, and solar production going down, since now the cells warm up substantially enough to be outside their optimal operating range.

Last week with blue skies, but a steady cool wind from the Pacific solar production peaked at 24 kWh/day. On hot days like yesterday we average between 20-22 kWh/day depending on temperature and the angle of the sun.
