As the cold and dark has hit the bill has spiked making this a much lower reduction than usual proportionally as well as numerically, about 11%.

About as expected. I will be using the fire for heating more over the next couple of months though so hopefully that will keep it steady.

Today I received my first electricity bill since the in-out meter was installed to go with my solar panels. I also received the monthly production summary for October (view the daily performance here). This allows me to make some rough* calculations:

Over October the panels generated 372 units (kiloWatt hours but "units" is the term most people see on their power bill).

191 units were pumped back into the grid, for which I currently get paid 7 cents a unit (total $13.37 )
The balance of 181 units were used immediately by the house. Had I been drawing that power from the grid it would have cost 27.28c a unit*, so I saved $49.37 there.

In total my power bill is ~$62.74 lower than it would have been for October.

* the calendar month and the billing month are out of sync by about 2 days; also the meter was installed a couple of days into the billing month so those numbers are for slightly less than a whole period. But close enough.
* the cost per unit went up to 29.06c at the beginning of November so I will be "saving" even more on power used directly going forward. OTOH I do get a prompt-payment discount so the real cost per unit will be slightly less.

The Enlighten report also tells me that my production for the month is a carbon offset of 567 lbs or seven trees.
