All the solar panels and were completed in just 3 days by a crew of 4 on the first day, 3 on the second day, and 2 on the third day.  Revision Energy’s was well-prepared, and had a very well-coordinated team effort throughout the installation.

The first half day of operation produced the 6.2 KWh of power shown below.  We haven’t had much sun since the installation, but the panels have still produced about 100KWh of power over the past few days.
