The Brown family of Cumming, Georgia installed 22 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels in October 2011 to offset their monthly home energy bills. Their system was installed using microinverters, an innovative type of inverter which allows individual solar panel power production to be tracked in real time.

We recently ran a report with Enphase Enlighten system monitoring to analyze all of the power that was produced from their 22 solar panels over the past 6 months. The results, shown below, are pretty astonishing – their rooftop solar energy system produced a total of 9,953.87 kilowatt-hours (kWh).

Because they pay an average rate of 12.5 cents per kWh, this figure is equal to over $1,200 dollars worth of power production (9,953.87 x $0.125 = $1,244.23)!

9,953.87kWh!¬†And that’s just in the past 6 months – if we extrapolate this data and forecast over 12 months we estimate this system will save them over $2,400 annually! That’s $24,000 dollars worth of energy savings over 10 years assuming no power rate increases!
