A better year than 2012. Although spring and autumn weren't quite as good (with spells of snow in January and March), the three summer months June-August were very much better, with a particularly fine spell in July during which we recorded our highest ever temperature of 34.9°C. 2013 was much dryer than 2012, when there were 5 months with over 100mm rainfall. Overall we generated 50kWh more than in 2012 and earned an extra £43. Again, we managed to pay for all our electricity usage with some extra.
