    4.2 O's today.
    Plan for tomorrow - cutting down the tree which is causing shading. Looks like the carbon saving is >4 trees, so i can get away with cutting down a 2 story tree.

    Supplied my first FIT reading yesterday which was 119% of PVGIS :j

    On the downside I have just got back from holiday and it hasn't been a good month. I need 14 O's to make PVGIS which may be pushing it.

    Just landed in Gloweth, just outside Truro, for another uni open day at Penryn campus, uni of Exeter.
    Nice airbnb place, makes a short drive to campus in the morning.
    Fantastic sunset as we drove in, and home has done 4.2 ho's, so all is good in the world!

  • Although panels fitted on 24th - was too dim to commission...so spark had to come back today (25th) and press the button etc...therefore generation only started about midday today
