Solar Roof Layout

It's been a while since I posted updates. I still read and respond to comments on this blog. However, I've been busy starting up my new company providing solar layout and shading analysis services for PV installers and contractors.

116 Miles Today

A personal record. I estimate about 10 miles of this was on solar power, 50-60 miles on charge stored in the batteries (including a 3 hour recharge at a solar-powered facility using plug-in AC battery chargers) and the rest was good old fashioned pedaling. My cruising speed was usually between 20 and 30 miles per hour, depending on the terrain and headwind/tailwind. Here are some numbers for those of you who like numbers:
