HOW TO INSTALL SOLAR PANELS DIY ARRAY ENPHASE MICROINVERTERS 1.47 KW SYSTEM TIME LAPSE

Installing solar panels yourself, DIY.
Keep in mind the 19 price doesn’t consider the federal or state tax incentives, which would lower it significantly. I show how to deal with roof penetrations and racking in more detail here. Dealing with Xcel and the building inspector were videos in themselves. Feel free to ask questions though and if your feeling very generous you can help me spread knowledge, inspiration, compassion and adventure around the world with monetary support.

Systems been running for a total of 40 months: the one caveat to also keep in mind is that for about half a year we’ve been working with only 4 panels because of an addition on the house.
Update as of 9/5/16 the system has been running for

So:
40 months total

It has produced 4.74 megawatts-hours total

1 megawatt = 1000 kw

So that equates to 4740 kwh total

4740/40 = 118.5 kwh per month

118.5/30 = 3.95

~3.95 kwh per day

  1. your saying 3.95 KiloWattHour per day. So is it 3.95 kilowatt per hour or per day? Or maybe you mean 3.95kwh times 24 houres?

  2. Great system. I made a water heater solar system that i mounted on my roof. its been up and running for over 4 years and has saved me lots of money.

  3. do the enphase inverters cost less than one main inverter in general? I was also wondering It looks like it is back fed into that double breaker. If the street power goes off will it back feed the lines?

  4. my question is how is it during winter season you gotta climb up everytime it snows an brush off the snow is it possible that the snow is too heavy an damage the panels

  5. He should've failed you for that hacked looking #6 ground wire splice. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I left a job looking like that

  6. What if you need to redo your roof? That would suck. Solar panels are so big I home the tech gets better soon get more power from smaller panels I am interested in solar but I wouldnt want to mount it to the roof I have snow and stuff where I live Pole in the back would be better.
