Beginning of the 2011 installation season

We just completed our first PV installation for the 2011 season, a 2,300-watt grid-tie PV system. It was nice to get back to work like this, and we made the most of two kind-of sunny days to complete the installation. We got a bit of sunburn the first day, but it was cloudy enough to not be a problem on the second day.

We learned a few things on this installation. Working on a roof with little to no extra room around the edges is hard. We had to be extra careful when installing the last two modules, since we didn’t have much to stand on. But we got it done safely, and we think it looks pretty good. What do you think?
