[Last year’s solar energy production (March 2022 ) totaled 706.3 kWh]

Latest electric bill

Our February 23-March 23, 2023 electric bill was $30.33 which included all Bolt EV charging, operating a MERV15 home heat pump to provide heating over 40-degrees F. and all other home electricity needs other than a range and water heater.

The electric bill should drop considerably at the end of April, as solar energy production increases, and we straddle a more temperate period, between the need for home heating and cooling.
