Subject: RE: BS: Is This Weather Shite ???
UK here and it's not got much above 70F (21C) today. I'd be happy with that as I don't want it any warmer but most of the days lately have either been cloudy or misty and I want some sunshine.

It seems to mostly have been a plot since I had a solar panel fitted to the roof of a shed. We have had the odd good day where I've seen the meter go up to its maximum of about 4.5A (and I once got 28Ah over a day) but on many days I've rarely seen it even reach 1A and have had daily readings as bad as 8Ah which at say 12.5V is 100Wh. Not bad is it? The middle of UK summer and some days it's taking an 80W panel all day to produce just that. I dread to think what it will do in the winter.
