New #Solar record yesterday and some cool stats from my next bill. We exported 208% of the energy we imported from the grid over the billing period. With all the fixed costs we still ended up paying out of pocket but less the $15 bucks. If the weather stays sunny here might get to net negative.

Bill came in today for our first full month of #Solar. Our microgeneration covered not quite half of the usage that we pulled from the grid. Hopefully this next bill will be better as we get into longer days and less chances of snow covering panels. #greenenergy

The kids went to a movie on Friday and came home with Popeyes Candy Sticks. I’m really kind of surprised they still make them with all the smoking connotations they have.

Posted another thing on thingiverse today, just a quick remix of a Raspberry Pi case to allow mounting a fan to try to keep my pi cool during octolapse renderings.
