"These 'off-grid' photovoltaic systems are selected for ease of installation, maximum generation, and longevity."
Health and safety should a priority when self-installing PV solar panels.
1. A safe working platform with ladders to help protect the roof surface and spread the weight of the installer.
Locating the Inverter/Battery Pack next to your planned wire entry area is advisable to keep the wiring length as short as possible.
2. Clamp the aluminum 'horizontal rails' while checking they're square before committing to the final clamp down with additional roofing-grade sealant around the fixing points.
The best part of an installation is fixing each photovoltaic panel while connecting in series, routing, and securing the wiring with cable ties.
A microfiber cloth is handy to wipe down as you go.
3. Run your wiring down to your Inverter's location. This can be secured to an additional board to house the electrical components and the battery's location.
4. Enjoy your first cup of tea made with your PV-powered electricity. You've joined a growing army of people who benefit from solar panels.
