So why is solar
PV so important? Because in daily afternoon load
peaks, that's when PV is producing, and having distributed generation,
that is completely self-sufficient, is a marvelous thing. Hot
days in So Calif hardly ever have clouds, so power generation is fairly
reliable. My rooftop peaks shortly after noon, Solar time, and
continues right to sunset. At peak hours, I'm powering not just
but at least 1 and maybe 2 other houses, (+3KW)
that Edison does not have to provide for. (of course that 14,000 unit
condo development just down
the block sours that idea, they will have to suck power from

In May 2008, I sold my house w/solar array & laptop, and am
encouraging the new owner to become involved in the solar community.
For as long as is feasable, I will try to maintain a link with the data.
