Solar Panels Arrive!

The FedEx truck delivered the first 20 solar panels today! 
Curt Shellum, our fearless solar installer,  was already here, waiting to make sure everything was in order. They hauled the panels into the barn.
It was kind of like Christmas; we had to open them up and admire them!
Everyday while he has been to here working, LaFonda has been curiously following Curt's work. He requested a photo of her with him and a solar panel, but she wasn't the most cooperative.
I don't think I have a future as a bovine portrait photographer.

The weekend's 8-10 inches of snow is almost melted off the barn's south-facing roof already. Curt brought his roof rake to clear away a bit more snow to speed things up, and if we are lucky and it stays sunny, they may be able to begin the actual installation tomorrow!

How exciting!!! That's sweet that LaFonda wanted to see what was going onto her roof. :)

Totally cool. I hope you're going to post photos of the actual installation, that would be very interesting. I have solar panel envy, sigh.

How exciting for you! I think one of the very best things we can do for our out-of-kilter society is to do all we can to reclaim our own personal accountability in being responsible for our lives. We have to relearn how to take care of ourselves.
