We are happy to announce that the solar photovoltaic system at the Passive House in the Woods produced the first 1/2 kWh of electricity yesterday. Both the solar electric and solar hot water systems will help this home achieve carbon-neutral operation and offset its footprint.

[Update] Midway through day 2 of operations, the PV system has now generated in excess of 50 kWh. It is exciting to see the power generation meter spin up and start to offset the consumption meter!
