Solar Completed

I finished my solar installation. It exceeded my expectations. Output I had was greater than specifications - specs are 2.2amps / panel. Have 8 Panels (17.6 amps). As sun rose up, output started at obvious apx 1amp or so then maxed out around 22 amps (2.75/panel) from 9:30 'til apx 2:30 - Love German production! I stopped taking photos after 20.1 amps.

Note: Even when at high output (20+amps) even slight cumulous clouds dropped the total to apx 3.5 amps even though it was way too sunny in general. Anything that gets in the way of the sun's direct shine on the panel will have detrimental affects.

I was able to recover over 50% of the energy consumed the previous day/night - FYI, I Run my Air Conditioning on batteries via an Inverter!
