After 8 months of generating all our power needs from the sun today was the first day we didn't reach float or absorb charge.
There was absolutly no sun with thick cloud cover all day.
About 240days worth of electric for a family of 4 using every day electrical appliances supplied only from solar.  
ok We live on a greek island so maybe not a suprise but still not a bad run.
(every day we reached float charge)

PS our hot water has also been totaly covered from solar but with a 500lt tank 1 cloudy day is not an issue
