Plans in today for a 4.26 MW rooftop system. Contractor claims it will be 'the biggest' rooftop install on the east coast!

Should start mid-September, as soon as the new roof is completed.

This job is now in progress. Solar contractor has +/- 175KW of panels racked. Re-roof is behind schedule, and winter is closing in fast!

Pics of progress will be forthcoming.

Yes, a lot of panels! The install is a ballasted system and I'll get some quantities of other items soon. it's been tough the last few days with the low temps, and the wind (25+ mph).

I hope to have some progress pics soon.

Quick update & pics to follow soon...

Got a press release from the landlord of this site and they are touting a May 2011 on-line date for this system.

The inspections for this project were assigned to my inspector, and he is getting the pics to me soon. It's been busy!
