FINALLY WE HAVE AN INSTALLATION DATE
About 2 months since the roof was replaced and the anchor points installed, and 3 months since the solar panels arrived, we are set to start the install on January 19th. The first item will be a transformer disconnect by APS for a new service entry cable and a new 400A Siemens PV main meter panel. The expected outage is 4-8 hours and I have battery backup for internet and wi-fi so I will be able to work from home, or use 4G modem if ISP is not available. I plan to drop a new cable coax wire into the trench if the electrician will let me before he covers up. This is needed because the COX ISP cable I have is only an inch under the surface gravel (xeriscape) and has severe damage where I hit it when I was shoveling out dirt for the new walk-thru gate in the block fence.
