    Worst day of the month yesterday, only 7.9kWh.

    Caught the wife putting on a white wash too, flippin 3 hour cycle, at 5pm!

    She's got so used to washing/drying during the day it has become habit. But mostly back to running these things overnight.

    Daily import from the grid has been 7.4kWh for the last 2 days. Average was about 4-5kWh through August apart from days when I charged the car overnight.

    :P It's a fine balance between getting the Mrs. to be more solar aware and being threatened with divorce.

    She's back on track today. Just phoned me to warn me that the battery was almost full and generation was high.

    I had already run the dryer earlier and the washing machine was on a timer, so I turned on the dishwasher via app. That'll eat up some power til we get home and plug in the car.

    What inverter do you have? Do the 3kW go on the same string? You don't want to put panels facing different directions on the same string.

    Trannergy PGL3400.

    6kwh in meath also.
    I still havent had a clear day since my system has been up and running ��

    I don't see a PGL series on their website but this here: https://www.trannergy.com/en/products/sgn3400-5400tl

    can take 3kW on a single string. So you could move all existing panels onto one string assuming you are within voltage and current limits.

    There are very few "blue sky" days in Ireland. We had a good few of them in May and early June, but none since.

    Started off very wet up here in South Donegal, but the sun has been breaking through since 11, looks like it could end up being our best day of the week. It has been a very dull week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 118 ✭✭DeclanD54


    Plenty in march/April of this year.
    Be nice to see one before we head into propper short days

    Yeah sun has actually broken through here now too thankfully.

    Closest to a bluesky day I've had so far is the 8th of August:

    Yeah 8th of August my best day aswell.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,129 ✭✭✭✭DrPhilG


    Yeah this morning was awful, dark and miserable and torrential rain.

    Brightened up big time at about 2pm, consistently around 2.5kW with occasional bursts of 4+.

    Like winterman I left the house this morning expecting the worst all month, at this rate it could be close to the best (19kWh).

    Any suggestion as to why your generation line is relatively smooth whilst mine is all over the place?

    The difference between clouds and wall to wall blue sky, just the luck of where you are on the day. The cleanliest looking day I had this year was the 13th April, they don't happen very often.

    That certainly looks like mine.
    My solar guy is passing by tomorrow so I’ll have a better idea of where I’m at then.

    May consider a zappi charger is one pops up for decent money to take the benefit from the excess then.

    Saw one for sale earlier on Facebook I think, €400 and seemed like it included a Harvi. Tethered one.

    Mine are nearly always zig zagging, even on a scorching day.

    Maybe because I've got 2 separate arrays facing different directions? More scope for variation.

    Same county as Winterman, who got this:

    Whereas even on my best day ever (35.8kWh) I still had some major jagged dips.

    Clouds, that day there was basically none! Other days it's all over the shop.


  • Registered Users Posts: 88 ✭✭Winterman1234


    I have never seen any day since that looked as smooth. That day was blue cloudless sky from morning to evening, a normal good day is like yours up and down. Cloudless days don't happen very often, any more than 2 a year I would class a bonus. 6.2kWh here so far today, best day seen last friday, but raining now and generating 190 watts.
