I seem to recall this being discussed a while ago by some of the early adopters/large array members, but I can't find it for the life of me so thought I start a new thread.

My generation bean counter finally ticked over the 20000 Kwh's production extrahappy

It's been eagerly anticipated with the late surge of autumn sun, but finally made it on 6th October; 4 years 6 months and 19 days since installation, or, 1664 days / 39,936 hours / 2,396,160 minutes, etc.

An averaged daily output of just over 12 Kwh's per day from a 3.92kw system, which - touch wood - has never faultered or had panels cleaned.

Don't remember how this compares to other members but it far exceeds all expectations I had when making the initial installation decision. So glad that I did.

Hope good performance is allowed to continue for remainder of FiT term as now have eyes firmly set on achieving 100 Mwh's over the 25year lifetime.

21.1 MWh's if I add both FIT meters together so I guess I'm in the club. extrahappy
My original 4kw grid tied system will hit 20+ MWh's mid next year by itself.

I'm a little late to the party, but TGM's just reached 20,000.2kWh. Not bad for an E/W system on a 3 bed semi.

Is there any cake left?

[Breakdown:- installs Aug 2011 and July 2012. Leccy consumption during the period, approx 15MWh (8MWh import and 7MWh PV)]

My original 4kw grid tied system currently at 19,947 so will hit the 20MWh over the weekend.

Less than 5 years in, so hopefully will clock up the magic 100MWh before the FIT contract runs out.

Thats if I'm still glued to the generation meter in 2035. wackoold

(I'm just short of 50MWh for my 10kW wind turbine.  I'd be well on the way to 100MWh if it had just been running most of the time. .. And I've just noticed this is in the PV section. Sorry!  Couldn't resist pointing it out though.)
