Wow that's cold, we're lucky the lowest we normally get is around -5 DegC. I once experienced -15 DegC when I was up North and I thought that was bad enough.

I guess you guys are accustomed to those low temperatures though.

We have three snow flakes fall and the whole county grinds to a holt.

Yep.   This is fairly par for the course for us.    Which is why we Canucks really enjoy summer.   we only get it for a very short time.   then it's back to shitty weather.

I flew into Vancouver Sept 2017, beautiful sunny day and the show was all around the entrance to the air port.
When I questioned it I was told it had been brought in and placed there.
I never did find out why.

A lot of filming is done in Vancouver. It could have been brought in for a scene from a movie or something. While Vancouver gets snow, it doesn't really get too cold there. That's why it's the only place in Canada that can support palm trees outdoors, year-round.

Managed to get up there and clear them this afternoon, generated a pitiful 2.7 kWh today.

Sorry miss type it was 2.1 kWh but better than the 0.14 kWh yesterday with the snow.

How long have you had your panels in service, I stared to put mine up in June 2018. I've been adding a couple a month as funds permit with getting the micro-inverters. I still have another 8 to go up on this array and other have another 6 to mount once I get the supports up but that will be at the bottom of the garden somewhere.

Nice,

We seldom get the snow, but we have a ton of dark cloudy rainy days, even in the summer.

I have 16 x 250W in service, just put an order in for two more AP System YC500i micro-inverters so that will make it 20. I'll end up with 24 on the main array (6 kWp).

The other 6 x 250W panels will be mounted further from to house. In the end I'll have 7.5KWp unless I can acquire a few more panels that is.

More like a typical winters day today. Slightly higher than normal at 3.82 kWh.



Hoping that now that days are starting to draw out longer my generation will start to go up. At one point today i was exporting a few Watts for a couple of hour's.

So another miserable cloudy wet day and a pitiful amount of generation achieved. 1.72 kWh today.
Thought it was going to pick up again offer yesterday's gain but guess I was being a bit optimistic.

I'm thinking it's time to bite the bullet, splash the cash and order the rest of the micro-inverters needed to put up the rest of my panel's.
