16 NovSolar Installation – Installation Day Four

Monday, November 16 2009:

WOW.. Today was a BUSY day, solarwise and not. :)

  • Holes were drilled into the roof for the conduit
  • Grounding wire installed
  • Solar panels arrived
  • Conduit run, both in the garage as well as inside the attic.

So the electrician’s didn’t poo-poo the inverter placement too much. The only thing is that code requires the placement of the subpanel 3 feet away from an open door. Since the garage door is a door, the subpanel will need to be placed “in shelving unit”. I’ll need to clear ALL of the crap from the shelving unit near the inverters for the inspection, then put everything back there. “Shh.. don’t tell the inspector!”

On to the pictures!
