Solar Project Update – Live and Connected to the Grid!

Yesterday Waterloo Energy successfully connected our home and Flyingbow Ministry office to the grid and got our wireless computer monitoring system booted up and online. Our Solar Panels are now live! It has been quite an involved process: from moving roof vents, re-shingling the house, installing the inverters & panels … to the final electrical hook-up, meter installation and wireless router/software syncing. Here are a few pics of the final steps …

The meter is installed by Guelph Hydro and final electrical work completed before the solar panels go live.

The cables from the solar panels run along the edge of the roof line down to the shut off box and meter.

The wires from each of the 33 panels and micro-converters are routed to this connection box on the top left corner of the roof.

A sophisticated online software system monitors the solar power that is created on each panel. This is a screen shot from earlier today …

The solar panel array is complete and connected to the grid.

A big thank you to Mike Bolger and Paul Boles for their leadership in the solar install – a job well done, guys!

Until next time. T
