After waiting nearly seven months after I signed the contract, my little 3.15Kw grid-tied solar PV system was partially installed today by Namaste Solar. They could have easily finished it today, but they had to stop so that the city inspector could do an “in progress” inspection on Monday morning.
The picture above shows the ten 315 watt SunPower 315 E19 series panels in my garage. They weigh about 50 pounds each. The E19 series panels are 19% efficient, which is the best in the industry right now. I wanted these since my roof area is relatively small.
The picture above shows the SunPower SPR300m inverter and DC cutoff switch installed on the north side of the house, near the main electrical panel.
The picture above shows four of the ten panels installed on the upper roof of the house. There will be six panels on the top rack and four panels on the lower rack. It should all be done and producing power on Monday!
