Solar installation complete

Posted Tue, 11/17/2009 - 23:22 by kpbadger

Today, the connection of our solar system to the utility grid was completed.  Madison Gas & Electric installed the second electrical meter and the system is good to go.

Here are pictures of the installation from the beginning to the finish:

The total capacity of our system is 2.7  KW. The inverter is installed in our basement.  The inverter converts direct current (DC) from the solar panels into alternating current (AC) for the power grid. You can see from the side-by-side picture of the inverter next to the breaker box that the inverter is a rather large piece of equipment. And this is one of the smaller inverters available.

Here is the picture of the completed installation.
