Our Power Usage

I've kept regular records of all our energy and resource flows. Every month I enter the data from our solar power regulator that controls the flow electricity from our solar panels to our batteries. It also controls the flow from the batteries to the inverter. I can use these records to check on the health of the batteries and to moderate our usage depending on how much is coming in.

Here are some examples of my records from October 2008: Solar Oct 08 Chart

The SOC stands for State of Charge. It is a percentage of our batteries that remains.
