The Clarks solar installation was nice as we had a staging space over the garage. This space allowed for easy access to all our equipment.

The Kinetic flashings are installed under the shingles to prevent water from seeping into the roof penetrations. A special caulking is also applied to the bottom of each flashing.

The racking is shown above. Note that the flashings are installed so that the weight of the modules is distributed across many different roof trusses. The first and last truss under the array must have a flashing/roof penetration.
Note how the flashings are installed so that the weight of the modules is distributed across many different roof trusses. The first and last truss under the array must have a flashing/roof penetration. There is also a maximum span allowed between supports (48″), thus the extra support seen in bottom right and a few other locations.
