I’m just in the R&P (Research and Planning) phase of my solar system so I have many many questions. Your site is a real trove of great info. Thanks for your generously sharing your expertise.
To start with a simple question i.e. is it acceptable to use my current monthly utility bill to calculate the size of our yet-to-be solar system? In most solar websites and videos, the experts all recommend using a special meter to measure the power of every single household AC device. It just seems like it would be so much easier and faster to use the power consumption from my current power utility bill. Am I missing something?
