The long summer days are behind us for another year – how did the panels fare over the peak summer months?
Luckily, it seems like the bad squirrel days are behind us. Whilst not hitting the heights of summer 2013, the generation for 2014 (in purple) has been above the expected generation levels for all three summer months. Which is good news for the stress levels of our treasurer – our accounts had taken a blow from the nibbling squirrels and the high generation means our finances are looking healthier again.
Good news for Gloucestershire renewable electricity generation too.
