2015 08 01: the living building challenge requires a report on my home’s energy consumption for one year. i was not taking solar panel energy production or garage energy usage until mid-june. so july data fulfills the first month of the lbc requirements.
energy usage: 584 kWh
energy production: 846 kWh
the energy production from sunpower website (the supplier of my solar panels), 864 kWh, is a little over 2% higher than the sitesage data.
the energy production data does not yet include energy generated by the solar panels that power my hot water heater.
during july, my house had three people living in it.
july was easy. december and january are going to be tougher. fortunately, there will be more easy months before december.
