This past Thanksgiving week our solar pv system passed a final inspection by the City. Going forward our Xcel Energy bill will start metering the solar power generated and used. We couldn’t be more excited to start using power off the grid and to start tracking our savings.
We ended up selecting flexible solar panels by Miasole call the FLEX series, specifically model FLEX-02N . These panels are an ideal solution for our standing seam metal roof since these lightweight modules directly bond to the roof between the metal ridges. Not only do they offer a clean, sleek aesthetic but the modules will provide more than enough energy with the 16, 125-watts panels. These lightweight panels reduce the structural load of a typical panel array and they minimize wind resistance with its flat profile. Our generated energy will be stored in the SMA 3.0 KW inverter which has extra capacity in case we want to add more panels at a later time.
