This is a pallet of 240 watt Kyocera Panels on a double tiered rack. The upper and lower racks are 4 strings of 3, combined into an upper and a lower DC currents to upper and lower DC Charge Controllers. A south facing rack really cranks out the power in the winter. The racks are "tiltable" to get a 25 degree angle in winter, 45 degree in summer.
