I thought I would start a thread with links to forum member's solar installations that have been documented with pictures. Thought it might be a good idea to have a one stop thread for anyone planning on doing the same so you can get any ideas without having to search the forums. I have linked the ones that I could remember or find but feel free to add yours or anyone else's that I have forgot.

I have edited the list to show all installations in the thread.

I've got installation and detail pics on the blog. Four-part series (there was alot of stuff to learn [emoticon]):

Part I - The Discovery Process
Part II - The Equipment
Part III - The Installation
Part IV - Panel Tilting & winter solar optimization

Parts I-III were written when we first installed solar in Dec 2010. Part IV was written just recently after a year of happy use (all systems go!). Enjoy!

sonicsix, I had you on my bookmarks but didn't get you on my list for some reason. Yours was one on the first systems I looked to when building mine.

Loads of good information - Nice to see it all in one place
The PV array installation looks to be where the majority of the effort is being concentrated. Too bad we don't see any proactive warning / alarm systems in these installs or detailed configuration files of the controllers.
