To date, this is the prettiest solar installation I have sold. It was in Oakley, Ca…. waaaaay out of my territory of San Francisco.
Our engineer gave the customer the specs required by code for the trellis, and the customer built the structure because he was a contractor. Then our guys came in and did the install, and it’s really pretty looking. They are going to put in pavers underneath it and some patio furniture. It’s a hell of a way to shade your patio.
The system is a giant for a residential application at 7.74 kW, and by the time I got there to snap these pics it had already generated 43kWh or electricity that day, and it was only 3:30 PM.
