My Electricity Balance

Since the beginning of this year I have solar panels on the roof of my house. The electricity these are producing should be more than enough than I am currently using. I bought a bit more solar panels since I expect to have an electric car in a couple of years.

My energy provider is giving me my monthly usage and production. Based on this I have created the visual below. It states for each month the consumption (red) vs the production (blue). The electricity meter is installed at March 1 so there is no data before that date. The solar panels have been installed in May. So far this year the numbers are looking very good, since the solar panels produce the most in spring and summer. In the coming months the bars will be more red!
