Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

We're Generating Power!

Thursday, October 30, 2014

I've been sick since Tuesday with some nasty respiratory thing that's going around the office.   Just an hour ago, I was on the phone with someone from work when the phone suddenly went dead (we have Google Fiber) and I heard a bang.  At first, I was a little freaked out and then I realized...Kansas City Power and Light was here swapping out the utility meter.

I was in no condition to try to make my way all the way down into the basement and mess with the inverters, so J. had to throw the switch when he got home.  How exciting!  Now we just have to figure out whether everything is working OK, which means we need to figure out how to get everything registered on SolarEdge's monitoring portal and hook the inverters up to a network switch so they can report back to SolarEdge. 
And figure out how to read that new meter.
Stay tuned...there's more to come!
