Our installations are progressing well, keeping up to the projected timeline. It has been a pleasure to visit one school where the work was completed and an other where it was on-going. I do laugh at myself in high viz vest and hard hat ! I had not realised what a range of strengths and skills are needed for a PV installation. Lifting the panels and the ballast for the ‘buckets’ on flat roofs is heavy labour. Fixing them in place and running the wiring through the protective baskets needs accuracy and precision. All has to be checked for safety. This is a lay persons view, not an engineering expert, but I am impressed. A bonus was the friendly welcome everywhere.
