2015/03/11 Six Years of Solar Panels
π 2015-03-11 00:00 in Solar
This year, our negative bill that we never get paid for wasn't as negative as usual. This was mostly because we used 800Kwh more, partially because some of my computer stuff wasn't shutting down as often as it should have.
On the other side, PG&E doesn't make it so like I should care sicne it's just a difference between 2 negative bills for which I'll never see a penny anyway.

Here's the spreadsheet showing all the numbers I've gathered so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AloDTsnSvSs7dHdwS1NzcHJlRF80cVg1NUxzUlFEOFE

Year #          PV Kwh  PG&E Kwh Used   House Kwh Used  Yearly Bill	
2010 - #1	8503	1602		10105		-$39.87	
2011 - #2	8813	1209		10022		-$38.80	
2012 - #3	8402	674		9076		-$110.43	
2013 - #4	8366	486		8852		-$134.06	
2014 - #5	8840	-30		8810		-$210.74	
2015 - #6	8665	1027		9692		-$41.38	

If I count 20c/Kwh with the different tiers, the solar panels saved us maybe $12000 so far, or getting to a half of the price we had to pay ($26k). Not bad...
