Sample Residential Installation
Installations on residences are as unique as each home.
This particular home has a southeast facing roof where we could mount (32) 250W panels for a total of 8kWdc power.
You will notice the neighbour has some trees that provides some shade in the early morning so for this site, using Enphase microinverters where the ideal solution. Each of the Enphase M215 is rated for 215W so this installation ended up being rated as a 6.88kWac microFIT system.
Homes - like this one - typically have shingled roofs and we take great care to maintain its weather integrity. Where we pre-drilled (to prevent splitting) into the trusses, we caulked the hole, bolt and bracket (called a "roof hook") to maintain the seal. We then inserted an aluminum "shingle" under the shingle above and over the roof hook with additional caulking for further protection.
