Time to energize (Part 3)
Finally the fun part begins! Wes got the trenching and wiring started while Alex was up on the roof working on the racking. We ran three sets of wires from the new Solar Shed to the house. One was the really heavy gauge DC cable to take the the DC current into the house where the batteries, charge controller and invert are. Then we ran a straight 110V AC line so there could be good clean power in the new shed. Finally they laid the conduit for future expansion. We could add a straight grid tie later if we want.
Today we “Through the panels up!” To be honest the couple hours that took was visually rewarding but still anticlimactic. They still have a lot of wiring and configuring to do.
