What You Need to Know

Description:

9 x SolarWorld 235w panels, Enphase 215 microinverters, Locus energy monitor

Maintenance Requirements:

none expected

My Motivation:

demo green energy, decent ROI

Advice:

PV "land rush" is on; it won't last, so do it now if possible Avoid vendors who don't send somebody out right away to do site eval, who just push what a good deal it is without tech details.

Experience with Installer:

United Solar: Dan McGrath: experienced, capable, conscientious. One-day install; getting inspections took a couple weeks.

Additional Notes:

Roof azimuth is 135*, some shading, so site doesn't have to be perfect. I expect to get 100% annual because I use little electricity.

Open House Info:

not open for GBOH 2013, but contact me for visits at other times
