Thought I would share our solar setup. Purchased a fixer-upper at the beginning of the year and having a small solar install to start off was always part of the plans. Plan to stay here at least a decade or two and trying to be as green as possible is the plan.
Did plenty of research first and became a bit despondent at the pricing around the solar installation. Had 3 installers come out and assess the job and give a quote. I then joined the “other forum”, of which I would not mention the name haha, to find other real people that had the same requirements as me. To gauge what’s needed.
Anyways, fast forward to a couple of forums posts and calls later with Jaco, not forgetting a global pandemic, we finally decided on a system within my budget. How I ended up with Jaco is that there’s a clear difference in pricing based on location. That’s a topic for another thread though.
Kudos to Jaco and his team. These guys work ethic are impeccable. We have been dealing with many tradesman since moving in and have had countless issues. If only Jaco did construction work as well haha Added a couple of pictures and details below.

I’m not sure of my setup direction, but it is 4 on one side and 4 on the other(newbie here):
Very neat install. Will look at getting a cupboard in the future:
