Solar Installation – Part 3
August 24, 2009
Alright, so with the rails up, we’re ready for Part 3…installing the panels. The panels are mounted on the aluminum frames, and connected to a DC voltage collector, which feeds into the AC-DC power inverter.
We have a total of 38 modules going on the roof, in 3 separate “strings” or “arrays” (solar guy’s terms). To those of us that are programmers:
power_t *solar1, *solar2, *solar3;
Heh, okay, bad joke!
A little over half are installed now. We’re waiting on the shipment of the rest. Hopefully, the rest should be installed by the end of the week. Stay tuned…
