You may have noticed that it’s been almost four months since our solar adventure began on this website.
After completing all the initial paperwork with Monolith, we had to wait a good deal of time to get various approvals: from the power company, from NYSERDA, etc. So, if you’re contemplating your own solar adventure, that’s an important detail to keep in mind.
Thankfully, we got notified a couple weeks ago that the installation was officially scheduled for last week and that we would finally see some work done after almost six months since we first started the process.
As of Friday afternoon, the panels were up on the roof, ready to supply ~106% of our electric usage through a 10.8kW system. I took a little time off work so I could get a view in the daylight and got to go on an extra “ride” for fun. See the pictures for highlights:
While we still have a little work left on the inside, we should be able to finish it up this week!
Again, we’ve been really happy so far. I’ll try to report back in the future about how efficient the panels are, but we couldn’t be happier with Monolith. The installation crew was incredibly professional and the whole process–even the long wait time–has been quite enjoyable. They have a nice customer referral program, so if you’re interested in starting your own solar adventure (and trust me, it was an adventure), please feel free to contact me. Between their unique business model, impressive customer service, and attention to detail, I don’t think you can go wrong.
