Twosday Solar Panel update

Quick update. Happy Twosday, 2/22/22! The day is a palindrome and an ambigram. Google added an Easter Egg for Chrome users. It’s a lucky day for us, as our solar panels were installed today after four months of waiting!

We had one inch hail early in the morning. It was touch and go we would get the panels ready today. Tomorrow, we’re supposed to get freezing rain and cold, which should shut down Texas roads and schools.

Major lesson learned: Follow up with your homeowners association, make sure they have all the documents needed, and call them and check your progress often. The delay in the HOA cost us three months. The solar panels were installed in 3 hours! Next up, having the engineer hook up the wiring to our meter and the inspection when the system turns on.

More details on why we went with SunPower can be found on this Cleantechnica article I wrote: SunPower & Tesla Solar — Rooftop Solar Comparison. I would recommend reading the comments, as our decision was with controversy.

Warmest regards,
