It is most important to securely bolt a Ground Power Generator Review standoff to the roof rafter or other framing. You don't want to lose your array in a windstorm. Make sure the standoff is properly flashed and sealed so there is no possibility of a leak. Space the standoffs about 4 feet (1 1/3 meters) apart to fit the bottom rail of aluminum channel long enough to fit the array. A second rail is then installed to hold the top of the solar panel. Now the panels are ready to be installed using brackets that slide in the channel. But first we must install all the electrical wiring and conduit and make sure the rails are properly grounded.

Installing the Wiring and Conduit. As part of the plan submitted to the building department will be a wiring diagram that specifies the wire size, conduit and junction boxes to be used. Remember that wire size depends on the voltage and distance to the inverter as dictated by a wire size table. I suggest you use one size of wire larger that specified since that will reduce heat buildup and the associated voltage loss. Make sure all connections and boxes are watertight since repairs at a later time are usually complicated. You now are ready to install the panels and hook them up to the wiring. Remember that the panels will produce electricity as soon as the sun hits them so make sure you have not hooked up the inverter and are careful when handling any expose wires.

Time and money always seem to be the most heavily pursued and sought after life factors that we constantly hear of. Regularly you hear others speak of these factors more than anything else. When it comes to solar power, more specifically through solar panels, once again time and money are the most talked about elements. It is common to see residential and commercial properties with solar panels on their rooftops in an effort to generate solar electricity as a supplement or replacement to electrical use altogether. However, before installing solar panels you must consider, you guessed it, time and money.
