After a speedy and flawless solar installation from Puget Sound Solar, we’ve been waiting for Puget Sound Energy to install our new meters in order to officially turn the system on and begin net metering. Well, today was the day! As you can see be the green lights in the photo above, our inverters boxes are on!

All in all, it wasn’t a bad first production day. The system came online around 11:00 am and the above photo was taken at 5:30. So, in 6 1/2 hours of intermittently sunny conditions, we produced 25 kWh. Not bad!

Look for a full system technical overview in an upcoming post by Derek.
