Output = 1,440.062kWh
Average = 3.945kWh/day

Revenue = £689.99
Average = £1.890/day

A good year, the best so far, generating 20kWh more than 2013 and 70kWh more than 2012. No standout months, but consistently good performance with clement weather for most months, very little snow and no zero-watt days. We did better than 2013 in 8 months out of 12, and the worse months were only a little below. For the first time we generated over 200kWh in each of the four summer months May-August, and July was our best ever month at 262.866kWh. Again, we managed to pay for all our electricity usage with some extra.
