Sunetrics began installing our Photo Voltaics solar panels yesterday and finished the job today.
Despite all the weather forecasters predicting thunderstorms in the middle of the day, Mother Nature held off so the guys could finish the job.
First they installed the bolts to attach the panels to our roof. We also asked for aluminum flashing to prevent leakage. Maybe we didn't need it but we talked to a roofer and he said it might be a good idea.
Then came the wiring to bring the energy from the roof to the Hawaiian Electric meter box.
This is where Art will be going to check every hour to see how much money he might be saving.
Then the panels had to be carefully brought up over the 2nd floor.
It's a good thing it wasn't very windy.
John and Dominic had a beautiful, sunny day to do their work.
And there they are; half of them anyway. The other half is on another part of the roof.
Curt did the final touches on putting the system together to monitor the micro-inverters that are connected to the solar panels.
It's really lovely to know we are now getting clean energy from the sun. I wish we'd put up a couple more panels though so I could be a sun hog.
