Montana Solar Project with SunMax
Description

This last weekend I got my 1.6kw system installed. Here are some pictures from the project. We really put the adjustable mounts to work as there was quite a sway in this refurbished home. I used the composite roof mounts and silicone to seal it all up. I will ad some more pictures as soon as it stops raining.

Awesome!  How would you rate the overall product and installation?

install was easy, i did all the mounts my self and then it took a second person to help with the panels. not a 1 person job. I would say that getting it all perfectly square before install is suggested but not required, as long as it all is not fastened tightly you will be able to work things back and forth. there are little clips that came with the front flashing that I did not see in any of the install videos they go on the mounts and fasten the front flashing tightly to avoid from tipping out when installing the panel. I think that I will order a couple more supports for the panels as I would like to see one mount per panel and for ~$5 its not a big deal to make sure it has a little extra support for winter in Montana.

What will you do in the snow? Have you done anything to protect the solar panels from serious snow load?

BigSkyWiFI I believe that it will handle just fine however I do plan on adding some more supports so that there is on on each panel.
