why are you hosing down the roof - to cool it off ?
You are all tied off and everything there !
That sure is a very professional looking  neat and tidy wiring job - maybe someday something I do will look that nice. But the electrons don't care in my case I guess.

Water washes the metal roof of dust & bearings , So the clean rubber soles & roof when wet are like deck boots / soles .

Photo  Shopped Mr Day ;)  and I'll let you know Eric .
Im just hopping i can get 11 strings up this year .
The roof took us a few weeks  to put on & save the old one .
I have been machining the mount system since last year when I had the roof panels roiled off.

Each panel is 12" & clips on top the two foot center on the truss , the #14 X 6" stainless 316 screw now go's into the truss.
Here on the wet coast we get some smokin winds & storms .

The Modified Combiner  box .
Just need to install a thin Plexiglas window .

Still a huge work in progress .
top 3 meters read panel output
Bottom one is from all 3 classics .
These pix were noon and in 2 strings only up & connected I was harvesting 1400 watts .

So glad I had a constant sun with DVM's , Classics  and these meters all dialed in for noon sun.
