6.8 kW System
This PV array was installed on two south facing roof surfaces. Five of the twenty, 340 watt 72 cell solar modules were placed on an unusual five-sided pentagonal shape. The modules are connected to a 6 kW SolarEdge inverter via two strings of 10 modules each.

A fall protection device is shown. These devices are installed to create an anchor location for the safety equipment to tie into.
The fall protection device is shown with rope and attachment. Rope grabs, shock absorbing lanyards, and safety harnesses are all part of the fall protection equipment used to safely move up and down the roof surface.
The racking system includes: the flashings which are installed under the shingles, they directed water away from the penetrations; rails which hold the weight of the solar modules; and the various attachments.
A continuous grounding wire runs between each rail and into the passthrough box that allows the wiring to enter the roof.
A torque wrench is used to fasten clamps at the ends and in between the solar modules. A torque wrench ensures the manufactures specifications are followed. Mid and End clamps secure the solar modules to the rails.

The SolarEdge Inverter was tied into the homes router. The CAT5 wiring was tidied up and the router was re-installed under the cable modem.
The SolarEdge 6kW Inverter was installed in the basement. The Inverter converts the DC energy from the modules to AC energy used in the house.
