Sharing your work is fun

The Internet is full of surprises. I happened to stumble upon a great DIY website called PVOutput.org that allows folks to post their solar production data for anyone to check out. Most of the content is from Australia, where the site is based, but obviously the numbers are growing worldwide. In addition to output data, there are how-tos for broadcasting your production data that will allow you to make it web accessible to yourself and other – a pretty cool and low cost technology for showing off how to be self sufficient and hopefully convince others to give it a shot themselves. But actually that’s not all it does – it also lets you see how your neighbors are doing with a similarly sized system and tells you how you might change the orientation of your own system to eek a few more kWh out or shift your peak slightly to better match your load if you like. Pretty cool stuff!
