48% of Our Electricity Comes From Solar


In November of 2010 our 3.4 KW Photovoltaic solar system installation was completed by SolarCity. The question since we started this project was how much of a home's power can you generate with solar power here at 45 degrees North latitude? I've heard people claim 50%.

We are well over 8 months into 2011 and through the month of August our PV solar installation has supplied 48% of our electricity. The chart above, which is a chart supplied by SolarCity automatically shows how much was generated by the solar panels each month and what percentage of our average monthly usage that is.
