3.96kWp solar PV system installed 1st March 2011. Purchased from Marks & Spencer (trusted the brand) and it included the PassivSystems solarPV monitoring system so I can get online info and history of what I have generated.
The system has been brilliant and I have generated 4500kWh in my first 12 months.
I am in my early 60's, semi-retired and work from home. I love technology having worked with computers throughout my career and am keen to reduce my energy consumption but improve my well-being and home comfort. Since installing solar PV have really got bitten by what I can do to improve my home environment and am obsessed with managing my energy consumption.
I try and calculate what energy I am using on a day by day basis to see what energy efficiency measures I can make. I really want a smart meter (but the utility suppliers will not install them for individual micro-genertors) - so I read my meters every day!
