Solar Power Generation Updates


July 22

  • It’s noon in July, and only 28W are being generated.
  • At 12:15 pm 57W were being generated, and all lithium batteries were at 100 % capacity.
  • At 5:00 pm input is zero, but all batteries are charged 100%.

The first summer I had a solar panel I moved it a lot. Changing the angle of the panel optimized the power being generated. However, it is heavy, the cables are cumbersome, and I broke some connections; I also have limited battery storage. So, this year I have picked one good location and angle, and kept the panel stationary. The power generated is adequate for my needs.

In order to manage the power that is generated, and stored, I want to know what times of day are good for generating power. That is the data I am collecting today.
