The picture above, from our handy little photovoltaic monitoring app, shows that that today we have produced our first 10,000 kilowatt hours (10 MWh) of electricity from the sun. And we’ve also saved some seven tons of carbon dioxide production.

Our arrays of photovoltaic panels, hidden away on our south-facing roofs overlooking the river, make us self-sufficient in electricity generation, even powering the new air-conditioning units installed in all our bedrooms and public rooms.
