Today is the longest day of the year - happy Summer Solstice - and how timely that the Velux is in so we can see just how much light it lets in. These photos were taken at 6.20pm just after a cloud burst, so not exactly the brightest conditions, but as you can see there's a tonne of light:
The Velux uses an electronic system via a remote control to open and close, and has rain sensors which means it will close automatically.
It's as if we have a megawatt bulb on but it's just daylight.... and late afternoon daylight at that. I wonder how much electricity we'll save by not having to turn the lights on every time we go in there now...
