Big topic for us this week as well as an intense job: Michael has just completed his first solar panel installation! Yet another opportunity to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak! I am really excited about this chance to harvest sunlight and produce electricity… many of us are very familiar with the history of mountain top removal, sludge spills and pollution that plague our unending need for consumption of energy: it has been many decades that I have wanted to contribute to the move towards a more sustainable community, and must voice my gratitude for all of the hard work accomplished to make that happen.
Notice in the top picture Michael has loaded his MIG welding equipment into the bucket of the tractor in order to access hard to reach sites.
In the middle picture, he was climbing the welded frame to balance up top as he fastened the panels one by one.
And lastly, the finished 10.1 kW array! Thank you, to you all for the support over the years …you have helped make this happen! Much love!
