Like many of you, I got my BC Hydro bill this week.
So the question immediately on my mind was…. DID MY SOLAR PANEL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!?
Well, actually. I think it did. Small, yes, but noticeable.
Here’s my consumption over the past few years, this year was lowest of all (23kWh/day average, 1392kWh total) for this period. Which is surprising considering the weather in July especially.
So the solar panel ‘offset’ about 1.3% of the electricity that I used, worth $1.21. From another perspective, it saved me just over 1/2 a days worth of average electricity use for my home.
PS: Can you tell when we got rid of our oil furnace? 🙂
