The data provide the energy output for several months from two roof-top solar arrays in San Francisco. This city is known for having highly variable weather, so while these two arrays are only about 1 mile apart from each other, the Inner Sunset location tends to have more fog.
A data frame with 284 observations on the following 3 variables. Each row represents a single day for one of the arrays.
Location for the array.
Number of kWh
The Haight-Ashbury array is a 10.4 kWh array, while the Inner Sunset array is a 2.8 kWh array. The kWh units represents kilowatt-hours, which is the unit of energy that typically is used for electricity bills. The cost per kWh in San Francisco was about $0.25 in 2016.
These data were provided by Larry Rosenfeld, a resident in San Francisco.
