Mucho sol 2

Today I finished installing the four remaining solar panels on the roof of the house. Everything went well except for the fact that I hadn't carefully checked the size of the new luxor panels. They are one centimeter wider than the kyocera ones so I had to do some extra work to make them fit in the frame (which I built with the kyocera measures in mind *sigh*)

I took several pictures. The inverters are still not in their definitive placement. They are in the shed for the time being. I'll move them to an appropriate place next week.

Solar panels to light up my life :p

Mucho sol

The solar panels I ordered last week arrived Tuesday after lunch time. I only had a little time to open the huge cardboard box to check that everything was right. Solar panels' upper layer is made of glass, it is extremely resistant, but it is still glass after all and needs handling with care.

I took a couple of pictures of the contents of the box. Next weekend I'll put them on the roof and will take several pictures too.
