17 NovSolar Installation – Installation Day Five

Tuesday, November 17 2009:

I think today will be the longest day that the installers worked. They started at 8am and left as 5:30pm (basically dark). They really wanted to get all of the panels mounted and finish up the roof work.

They were sucessful. I couldn’t take any decent pictures of the mounted panels since they didn’t finish until dark.

One interesting thing.. Did you know that you can stand on the panels? Ok, maybee not ME, but the installers did. I wish I had my camera at the time. I was blown away. ;)

Here are the install pics:

The installers did a great job on the conduit install inside the garage. Tucked up high and out of the way.
