The crew arrived just before 0800 as advertised. I had expected to take some pictures of the several folks clambering over the roof, but I was asked not to. Harnesses aside, they didn't always follow the company/OSHA rules while scampering over the roof and didn't want that photographed. They did a professional, clean installation...unlike some of the DirecTV work that preceded them.
Here you can see the two arrays of eight plus the odd seventeenth panel. The difference in color of the panels on the roof of the screen porch is pollen! The last shot shows the big inverter which inverts the panels' DC to AC. Note the cutoff box between the two systems and the box that is ready to receive SCE&G"s bi-directional meter. I'll keep you posted on how I fare financially. Obviously, I'm not off the grid. SCE&G will bill me even if I generate more power than I use just because I am connected to their grid.
While all this was going on, the foreman kept a careful eye on the proceedings.
