Starting the attic wiring
The combiner box contains the 4-amp breakers I had to special order from Virginia, and which arrived on Wednesday six weeks after I ordered them (as promised). The breakers guarantee that if one of the shingle series strings produces too much current, the breaker will trip and protect the rest of the system down the line.
I myself have recently set up a Solar Panel array with a synchronous inverter. It's going to cost me a little more than pure reliance on the grid, but I believe my contribution will be well worth it. Best of luck to you guys!
