Project Description:
Just like all of our customers the Oslund’s did extensive research and interviewed several good local contractors before choosing Palomar Solar. They really wanted the Enphase microinverters and per panel monitoring. They wanted a company with years of experience installing Enphase. The challenges of the job were working with the HOA as well as being able to get the heavy equipment to the back of the home to do the work. In the end we were able to put the ground mount in a spot out of the way and not very visible from the home. Another happy customer! Thanks for the opportunity!

Project Description

Client:   Mees

Location: Rancho Sante Fe, CA
System Size: 38.48 kW DC
Completion Date: 12/12/2013

Product:
148 Phono Solar panels and 148 Enphase microinverters.
Just like all of our residential systems this customer has per solar panel monitoring which is unique for this industry. Most companies do not want to be held accountable at the panel level.

Time:
Time on site: 5 days.

Project Description:
The homeowner was adding a five car garage and wanted to incorporate the panels in the roof. The main home was clay tile which is the most expensive to install on. So we saved the homeowner a significant amount of money by installing a comp shingle roof where the arrays were to be placed. After we installed the solar panels we had clay tiles installed to frame the system and match the existing roof on the home. It turned out great! The other challenge was the main electrical panel was not capable of back feeding the amount of solar we were installing so we had to do a line side tap of his main panel. Finally, most solar contractors will not get involved during construction because they do not like working amongst other contractors. We believe the best thing to do is to come in during framing to run all conduit within the walls for a much cleaner look. It requires and extra trip or two but in the end it’s the right thing to do!
