Solar Fail

How NOT to do solar installations

LETS DO SOMETHING WRONG TOGETHER

1-conduit run over the gutter

2-conduit run don ridge line

3- conduit touching roof

4- Didn’t account for heat expansion

5- brackets screwed into shingles

6- IT’S ON THE FRONT OF A HOME MAKE IT LOOK GOOD FOR THE OWNER

WHERE DO I START WITH THIS ONE

1- Conduit is laying flat on roof. Doesn’t allow proper cooling for wires in conduit. Traps water which backs into #2

2- No flashing on mounting brackets. Screw & Glue bracket is screwed thru shingle with a little silicon put on

3- The clips that hold the panels in place are to close to the end of the rail. manufacture specs call for at least 1 ” from end of rail. this will allow for summer expansion and winter contraction.

4- This may be picky but cut the rails straight they look like they were picked out of the garbage.

RAN OUT OF CONDUIT ? or JUST LAZY?
