Solar output monthly record smashed
As you all probably know, a lot of the UK has been working from home since late March 2020 because of the Covid19 outbreak. Normally this would be a mixed couple of months weather wise as we go through April showers to bring May flowers but this year has been an exceptional year Solar wise.
January and February weren’t much to write home about with 107 and 179 kWh respectively and both months 2 and 3% below average for my array but March, April and May have certainly made up for those two months. For March, April and May, my array generated 360, 469 and 621(!) kWh respectively which was 22, 13 and 31% above my average over the prior years!
May’s generation of 621kWh is quite simply stunning! Up until May 2020, the previous record month from my array was July 18 with 552 kWh with an average daily generation 17.8kWh and that seemed unbeatable but not only has this month gone and smashed that target, it’s set an exceedinly high bar 69 kWh above the previous!
For those interested in how much those months are worth*…
