The solar panels arrived on my birthday,But as you see they didn't go to far from the truck.I popped open one carton for inspection and series 2 of them in full sun and got 62.3volts, 2 volts more than expected.
They are well constructed but large. This will be fun putting the array on the south roof. I have designed a Unistrut frame that will minimize the roof penetrations for mounting.I will be able to shift the entire array by myself for seasonal tilt to the south,Then back to 5 degrees for the extended west exposure during summer.I had to call my friends at Wholesale Electric for some special Unistrut devices that I could not ever find out here.
I will be fabricating all my cables on site.
The Goldwing is covered by 2 panels.
I really like the Solarline 2 MC locking cables.For many years we hard piped or ran SealTite flexible tubing ,pulled wires ,installed ring terminals in a junction box just to get the current to the power room. Now snap some MC2 cables and there ya go
A small potted garden we brought from the Gulf coast.This is our first tomato since last year.
We are seeing what will really grow at 6000 feet. Peppers always good.
