Wind Energy Discussions
Roof-mounted devices, turbines in your back garden and wind farms.
Some of our members have recently started logging their KWh output on a monthly basis in a shared Google Spreadsheet.
Follow that link above to take a look at the data directly - the auto-generated legend on the charts themselves is unfortunately a bit too small to read.
If you'd like to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what your Google account email address is so we can add you.
The raw data is also available as a .CSV download.
Note to contributors - please continue to input your data via Google's Spreadsheet as normal, don't attempt to modify the .CSV and re-upload it - you'll overwrite any changes made by other people.
