Monthly Solar Production – Spring 2013

Pinterest

Spring is my favorite time of year!  The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, the weather’s getting warmer and my electric bill has the biggest monthly credit I’ve ever received.

Here are the numbers:

Period Ending Production As % of Usage Savings
May 21, 2012 536 kWh 117.3% $81.62
Jun 22, 2012 707 kWh 121.8% $107.72
Jul 23, 2012 767 kWh 75.1% $116.86
Aug 22, 2012 660 kWh 67.9% $98.93
Sep 21, 2012 616 kWh 77.6% $92.34
Oct 23, 2012 449 kWh 69.7% $67.32
Nov 23, 2012 313 kWh 50.2% $46.93
Dec 21, 2012 188 kWh 33.2% $28.19
Jan 23, 2013 195 kWh 35.0% $30.05
Feb 22, 2013 259 kWh 47.9% $40.02
Mar 22, 2013 325 kWh 60.4% $50.52
Apr 24, 2013 715 kWh 127.4% $111.14
Overall 5,730 kWh 72.9% $871.68

If there seems to be some inconsistency, it is due to monthly usage fluctuations, differences in the number of days per billing period and NStar price changes.

My last month using the NStar 100% Green Energy rate finally fell off the list. So the results above represent an accurate estimate of what I can expect to save on my electricity annually.

In other news, the Massachusetts CEC has decided to not reduce the 10-year timeframe for producing SRECs down to 8 years! This was one of the consequences of the SREC market becoming oversupplied. They had originally announced that the 2 year reduction would occur in June, then changed it to July and finally scrapped it altogether.

This is great news for those of you who haven’t gotten your solar panels yet as it translates to thousands of dollars worth of additional incentive money.
