A year of extremes, but our second best. Every month was below average (mostly well below), apart from May, June and July when some extended sunny spells gave us our first, second and fourth best ever months. May was exceptional with 286.060kWh, and there was a 28-day spell from 18 June to 15 July when we very nearly reached 300kWh -- see right; we also had our best ever day in this period, 13.656kWh on 22 June. We earned over £800 in a year for the first time, and another milestone was reached on 12 November when we passed 10 megawatt hours. There were 7 zero-watt days, mostly from a snowy spell in early March.
