Solar Install – 4/14/2017

I finally got around to installing the solar panels at Waterfall. Eric met me out there to supervise the install. I got all of the panels mounted before he showed up. Then it was a matter of organizing the cables based on what we had and plugging it all in, SUCCESS!

It needs to be cleaned up, but I have to go home and order some longer cables first.

Solar Panel Prep – 3/19/2017

Solar power has become our thing. We have it on our house, and now we’re getting ready to add it to Waterfall. I used the expertise of my coworker, Eric Ent, who just put a similar system in at his parent’s house. We have a 400 watt Renogy system.

Initially I wanted to put the on the roof, but I realized quickly that I could never get it clean enough and I was afraid it would not hold my weight no matter what advice I was given about it. So we decided to build a rack attached to the ground. Back to holes and concrete

A few screws sticking out on the end that goes in the hole. This should help it hold in the concrete!

It may not look like much, but this frame will hold 4 solar panels.

It wouldn’t be work if we didn’t mix in a little fun. Here are some silly shots of Corvin demonstrating how deep the holes are.

We ran out of time and material to finish putting up the solar panels, but here is where they will go.
