Doug Sabetti installed solar on the south-southeast facing, 30-degree, roof of his home. This system is located towards the east edge of the roof to minimize shading from the chimney. The 100-amp main panel is back-fed by the array through a 20-amp breaker.
Unique Factors and Challenges:
Doug installed the system in two phases, with two different panel manufacturers and sizes. This system highlights the versatility of Enphase microinverters; they are very modular
Doug paired his solar production to a hybrid-electric domestic water heater. This eliminated his need for a natural gas or oil fired water heater. In the future he may use an electric car, charging it with excess electricity produced by his solar array.
