Fr 05-Jul-2013: Solar panel system delivery

Fr 05-Jul-2013: Today our 6 solar panel set got delivered, installed and configured. The panels are from Astronergy and the inverters and gateway are from Enecsys. Schipper Installatie did the installation on our south facing roof. On 19-Jul-2013 we decided to change the panel layout on the roof, which created room to add a 7th panel to the set. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/ensink/sets/72157634530540079 for pictures.
