Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
It's been a mad hour or two at Home Woebegone, my dank den in the wall of Southern California existence. The SDG&E electrician came at 2 and tested my electric meter finding it accurate to within .2%. The fireplace man came and installed the newly purchased screen over the newly renovated fireplace. The electrician reprogrammed the meter to reflect the solar system's contribution correctly. With delight, I watched the afternoon sun drive the meter down by two kilowatt-hours before the sun sank over the hill to the West and into the great ocean beyond it.

We are still witholding the final payment to the solar company until we see a reasonable correspondence between the meter, the solar system's reported production, and our known pattern of use over the last five years. It is my fond hope these figures will correlate properly now that the variable of the meter has been eliminated.
