We found the folks at Nova Solar, Inc. to be a pleasure to work with😊, and we strongly recommend them.
Our first full month of data is primarily from the July, when days are significantly longer than most (and there weren’t a lot of dreary, rainy days). Over our first full month of data, the panels generated more than 1,700 kWh, with a few days of generating more than 80 kWh per day (!!!) and a peak of 86 kWh (which appears to be somewhat of an outlier).
Looking ahead, all of the paperwork suggests that we’ll be enjoying a significant tax credit next Spring. I haven’t completely figured out the Virginia Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) regime yet, but any cash that the panels generate (or any portion of the initial investment they recoup), so much the better.
