House Update: Annual Report

I'll post more when we've got the graphs into order but we've just looked at our energy use:energy produced ratio for the past 12 months (October 2013-September 2014).

Last year we generated a whopping 96.1% of all our energy.

The previous year (2012-13) that figure was 84% of the energy and we think the higher amount this year is partly a result of less snow and partly thanks to understanding how to fly the house.

So, despite all the quirks and all the naysayers, the evidence suggests that a combination of insulation and solar panels is how you cut your energy bills and reduce your load on the National Grid. It's not rocket science......

(.... or is it?)
