Morning everyone. I’m a little surprised no one has prompted me to get this thread started sooner, given we’re now 5 days into October. I thought I’d share a little personal achievement this time around, as I’ve started the month of October by managing to take a short trip by car using nothing but electricity generated from my own solar panels. One little step closer to self-sufficiency. Of course, solar power generation is rather weather dependent. My new electric car arrived last Monday. Only on 2 days since then have my solar panels been able to generated enough power to charge it. Ah well, bring on summer of 2021.
Current status of the Payback Calculations is listed below, and I’ll provide updates as we tick items off. We’re expecting all of the community files required to be ready on Monday 5th October, with calculations and audits to take place later this week.
