My panels are surprisingly productive, making around 54 kWh for each of the past two days when I would expect about 40 kWh (when the sun does shine through, it looks like it did during our solar eclipse a few years ago, sunny but dim).
The large solar project I was a part of last year (pictures below) has exceeded production estimates considerably. I guess panels laying flat out-perform angled panels considerably in cloudy weather. What I’d give just to have one section of that array at my house; power output in the rain is higher than my system is capable of producing at full output.
A friend of mine is in San Luis Obispo and reports a lot of smoke, and from what I gather, he’s upwind of the fires.
