Energy savings…

Here’s a view of the solar energy production earlier this week here at JeeLabs:

Best day so far … 19.3 kWh in one day: that’s some 2.5 x our average daily consumption!

This graph was made with HouseMon, which is still in the early stages but I’m viewing it on a daily basis – the Status and Graphs pages are already quite practical. Then again, it’s a constant reminder that the progress of this project is considerably slower than I had hoped when I started out. One reason for that is that I’m still hesitant to make some major design decisions – mostly because I don’t have enough experience and don’t feel confident enough with Node.js and CoffeeScript yet. So many things still feel awkward :(

Speaking of insufficient progress… it’s time to switch off:

I’m going to take a brief break, and interrupt this daily flow of weblog posts for a while.

It has happened before, and it will happen again: I want to clear my head and focus on some projects which take a bit more concentration than I seem to be finding these days.

But no worries: this daily weblog will resume before JeeDay (April 19 + 20), so there will still be enough time to get the latest info and news out to you.

Soooo… see you then, and more importantly: see you there !

(Pssst… in case you haven’t seen this… let that nano stuff inspire you… pretty amazing!)

  1. Is that a BSG reference, or is it because I have been rewatching it. ;)

  2. I wonder what happens to all that lovely power. If any of it leaks away to the grid, that would be such a shame. Check this out
