A new solar PV system for the workshop

The completed 16 PV panels
Yesterday was an epic day here as the new 4kw solar PV panels arrived.  We had already spent a week digging a half meter deep trench to take 45meters of heavy armoured mains cable and a network cable from the workshop to the house - the dry clay we had to dig out was like concrete!

Then we fitted the stringers to the galvanised workshop roof which we had cut from one of the oak trees cut in our woodland.

We are hoping to log the performance of the system by PC using the network cable.  Watch this space for reports.
