Bury conduit from the house or building that will receive the power to the area where the solar panel array will be located.
With the conduit in place, build a platform consisting of concrete pillars and 4x4s that will support the solar array.
Mount the Panels
Once the platform is finished, the experts are ready to get started. For the solar array, the team uses eight 24-volt 110-watt PV panels that have been pre-fastened to create the array. For the upstairs loft, four 12-volt, 255-amp sealed batteries will store power collected by the panels. And finally, a 5500-watt power inverter and 40-amp charge controller will be installed in the garage near the standard electrical box. This expandable system should produce 35,000 watt hours per month -- enough to power a deep well water pump, interior lights and a few appliances.
Moving on, the team mounts the panels to the platform. Angle brackets are used at the mounting points, and the front feet are mounted first. The feet are squared and centered before being secured into place.
Secure the Rear Legs
Use meteorological data to determine the proper angle for the array, then elevate and secure the rear legs.
Wire the Solar Modules
Wire the solar modules together and join them at a junction connector or fuse combiner box. The modules should be stripped and wired in pairs before being connected to the fuse box mounted at the platform and connected to underground conduit output cables.
Note: When performing any electrical work, remember to take all safety precautions. Because of the danger involved, intricate electrical work is often best left to professionals.
In the terminal box, the stripped wires must be connected properly. In this instance, the red wires are connected to the positive terminal, and the black wires to the negative terminal. Once connected, the wires are fed up through the bottom of the junction box and connected to the corresponding positive and negative terminal blocks. (Continued)
