I already installed solar panel in the house. Why this quarter bill is so much higher than the last bill.

..

If you track your usage and solar production, you will probably find it is . . . just winter.

 

A friend of mine got solar about same time as us, Nov / Dec last year, and he was just away for nearly 3 months overseas, returning to find his 6kw system is not even keeping up with his very low usage in his home with 2 people.

 

You may be using more power for certain things in the home in winter, but solar production is pretty much about 10% as beneficial in winter as it is in peak summer.

 

I intend to change a few things to improve production / reduce power use in the home, and then reconsider if mid to longer term I will get a battery to carry us through.

Hi LESTER, Thanks for your reply. I did check the usage and solar produced and found that a lot of different. I understand now it is winter. The solar panel produced energy less than the last quarter. I am thinking for install battery as well. Thank you very much.
