Dusty panels

Everything finally got submitted for our solar rebate, and we passed the solar inspection! I was up on the roof with John Joyce of Burbank Water & Power when I realized why our daily output had dropped from around thirteen kilowatt hours to fewer than seven -- dust.

So, I bought a giant squeegee, hauled a hose up on the roof and cleaned them all off yesterday morning. By the end of the day we were back up to around twelve.

First, that's kind of funny. :) Second, I'm glad it was that simple. Third, if you get some rope climbing gear, I bet Ronan would make inspections daily and clean them for you when necessary.
And big bummer about not passing inspection. That seems ridiculous.
