The site shows 50.5 megawatts in total generation. In late 2007 we installed our first 4.5kw (21 panels) system when we built the house, that system had no data logger, it generated 7500kwh per year. In 2009 we installed our “Sungas Station” when we became BMW Mini-E drivers, an additional 3kw solar PV system for a total system size of 7.5kw. (35 panels) It is at that time we installed the data logger and began the website count. The total energy created pre data logger and post data logger is very close to 60 megawatts. The basics are that the system generates approximately 11,700 kwh per year on average. Our home uses 8000 kwh and our ActiveE uses 4000 kwh for 15,000 miles of driving.
