Decided to mount solar panels today.
Started out cutting, drilling and forming some brackets.
Ended with getting them up on the roof but not bolted or wired just yet.

Royce, what size panels are those?

Tough looking brackets! Love 'em!

1. Who makes that solar panel?

2. Will you be my grandpa?

The panels came from Canadian Solar.
Here is the poop sheet for them.

Yes, I'm thinking if you don't eat too many of gramma's cookies, it will work out fine.

Just happened to see those online over the past week. Have you had success with them or are they completely new to you?
