Solar electricity is a top choice for providing clean energy, and thanks to lower prices in getting a system up and running, consumer demand for this alternative keeps rising. This program explains exactly how to install a solar electric system, with segments on determining where to place the panels or modules; proper installation of both the mechanical and electrical components; testing the system, including grounding and voltage; and what to review with the homeowner in terms of the system's operation and maintenance. The video also advises on OSHA safety regulations for rooftop and electrical work, and offers smart building tips to increase the system's efficiency.
