  7. @the43k you can still run your rail east/west when landscping your panels(you just have to use more rail)

  8. @metzfan2k I guess you missed the posts above, I would have much preferred to have placed the modules in portrait style, however, in order to maximize space, our only option was to place them in landscape.

  9. @the43k shouldnt you be staggering your mounting feet, so your not penetrating a single rafter more then a couple times??

    running your rail north/south obviously doesnt allow that, you could have run your rail east/west(allowing you stagger your mounting feet) with your landscaped panels(you’d just have to use more rail)

  10. I have x10 in my house, and I’ve concerned about power line collisions with the communication module.

  12. Micro inverters have 1 disadvantage. It has been said that all inverters of all types fail at 10%. This would mean that with 30 panels on a roof, that 3 would go bad (usually in the first 6 months, after that they are very reliable). With micro inverters, you need to go back on the roof and pull the inverter and the panel. Maybe even having to pull a number of panels to get to the bad unit. Central inverters can be done on the ground. Replacing is much easier.

  13. Great video and info. However, I prefer the Andalay system. The micro inverters are built into the panels- and the rack is as well. It makes the job go much quicker. Also, there can be no warranty issues surrounding the install since the inverters are installed at the factory.

  14. You can do them either way. I would recommend the other direction if and when possible. However, here we are very limited on space, we could get more panels in landscape style, so we opted for running them parallel to the rafters.

  15. Why are the mounting racks vertical? Most installation I see have the the mounting racks installed horizontally.
