Installation of Solar PV Completed

Here’s a run-through of installation day including receipt of panels through installing them onto rack-mounts. Amazingly, they installed all 4.68kW of panels in just one day! The installers were Sunburst Solar and contracted by Sungevity. They were courteous, patient with my questions and chill about my coming up on the roof to watch and photograph.

Our system exceeds our historical demand by a fair bit but with our second EV coming in the near future (more on that in a subsequent post) and an intentional shift from some gas appliances to electric, we should be taking full advantage of our considerable production. Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting about the changes we made, why they are a good idea and of course, about the new EV that’s coming soon!

Big thanks to my awesome project manager (and fellow Presidio Grad) Stuart Fishman and Solar Consultant extraordinaire Nadia Michalack who couldn’t have made this experience any better! Thanks also to David Julius whose installation team did an impeccable job!
