SOLAR ENERGY IN THE RAIN – It’s hard to believe that you can get a sunburn on a cloudy day, even though it’s true. Even harder to believe, is that you can produce solar energy on a rainy morning, but that’s also true!

That climate change prediction dovetails perfectly with using more solar energy production since solar really shines at offsetting the energy needed for air conditioning during summer months. Here’s a look at our solar energy production (on the Tesla app) showing production peaks around mid-summer:
We need to quit letting all this free solar energy go to waste!
