Finishing installing the solar panels

This morning we took an hour or so to go out and install the final ten solar panels on the racks.

As I may have mentioned before, our array consists of twenty-six 250W panels with a total capacity of 6,500W.  We will be configuring the array as two strings of 13 panels, each string will go into it’s own 80A MPPT charge controller.

The racking is designed and manufactured right here in Ontario by a company called FabRack Solar.  The racks are manually adjustable to optimize solar collection for different times of the year, and are really well designed.

All we have to do now is figure out the wiring and get it all connected and we’ll be good to go!
