Solar Electric Systems
(& New electric service panel)

Lockable shutoff switch below our electric meter required by PG&E.
The grid tied inverter mounted on side of garage out of sun.  DC disconnect switch to left.

My previous home's solar system in Redwood City, CA.  Installed Sept 2003. 

This was a labor intensive custom mouting job which faces true south at an optimum angle. While it is not reccommended for the economy minded solar consumer, it met our needs given our roof layout and lot location. The system supplies about 95% of this house's electric needs with only these 8 panels.
