Here is more production data for my solar panels with sunny days and no clouds.

AUG 27, 2019 ~ 56.6 kwh
AUG 27, 2020 ~ 47.5 kwh

SEP 14, 2019 ~ 50.8 kwh
SEP 15, 2020 ~ 29.7 kwh

OCT 15, 2019 ~ 36.1 kwh
OCT 15, 2020 ~ 24.3 kwh

NOV 16, 2019 ~ 23.3 kwh
NOV 15, 2020 ~ 24.8 kwh

So in AUG of 2020, there was some degradation to the system, and by SEP and OCT, it was pretty bad....
So I was on the internet looking for solutions, and finally I just hosed it down and it worked.  Proof is in the NOV numbers.


It is nice enphase has all the historical data easily accessible.

Checked a couple days on mine.

10/19/19 - 27.3
10/19/20 - 22.1

After the rain on 11/7 & 11/8 - I'm not going up on my 2nd story roof to hose them off, I'm asking for trouble.

11/11/19 - 19.5
11/11/20 - 20.1

Naturally the rain should clean off your solar, but if there is no rain between JUL ~ OCT, perhaps around AUG you should take a hose to it. 

Producing 30% less electricity for 3 months waiting for rain while fire debris collect on your panels is a unique southern CA problem.

So I noticed that one of my Panasonic 330w solar panels is no longer really generating electricity. A month ago it started making 1/2 the amount of electricity as the panels next to it and then then a few weeks ago it is basically not generating any electricity (see the picture below). I contacted the solar company that installed my panels and they contacted Enphase and that Enphase will push through a firmware update then to check on the panel in 3-4 days to see how it's doing and report back. Anyone ever had any issue like this? 

The issue was with one of the Enphase optimizers so it was replaced and no everything seems to be working properly with that solar panel.

It's been 3 months since we've put down our deposit with Tesla. Still no install date. Sad.

Or maybe taunting?

Are they waiting for something?  I'd reach out to your assigned rep and find out what's going on.

So I looked at the Tesla solar website. The price for the small one is around the same as last year.
I think I am ready to buy.

Reading different forums and articles. I think Tesla is the best price and most likely they will be around 10-20 plus years.

Apparently their service sucks, so prep accordingly.

Yeah, I read about that and family member experienced it. (The commission/referral check was delayed.)
But I have to follow and save the money.

Yep, I've been emailing our rep every few weeks. It usually takes them a few days/weeks to get back. It's not fun. Last I heard, permits have been issued and an install date is pending.

Ours took 3.5 months, but that was due to them needing to subcontract out the roof decking under our tile roof.

City inspection is tomorrow, then PGE activation is 1-3 weeks.
