I have an 8 panel 235 watt each system and am adding another set of 8 each 300 watt panel’s to the system which will more than double the capacity of the system and available power output throughout the daylight hours. This is a fixed position set and will produce a little different amounts of energy at different times of the year. The system has a monitor that will log out put of the panel’s throughout the year and will be able to store production change records for yearly production. Note winter output will be lowest because of deflection but more because of the short days for production…I have all the panel’s set and secured but not covered with the hardware cloth yet..Will have in production in the next couple of weeks and will be post pictures later this week or next. This is a system that I have built for a customer of mine and have been upgrading for them as they go along. They will and are planning on adding another 8 to 12 panels within the next year also..they will be on a ground mount system not up in the air so high as these are.
8 panel addition to existing 8 panel system
