In these two pictures (above and below), look closely and you'll see that the angle of the back legs are different. This enables the panel to be set at the correct angle for the sun for winter and summer.

In the winter position, there are handles on the backside of the panel, so you don't have to reach down as far! (Come on, stretching IS good for you!)





Another thing about the 'back legs' is that the bar (near the ground) joining the two legs is handy for moving the panel around when it is set in the summer position.

It really didn't take long at all to set up the panel; in fact there wasn't anything to do really, aside from setting the side bars to the back legs. All the cable wiring is done – it really is 'plug and play'. What took more time to do was unpacking the panel from its delivery box!

It is quite easy to move around, and if you want to keep it locked into place, simply tighten up the screws that are mounted above the wheels that lock against the tires ... and if you're in a windy zone, then add something heavy across the back crossbar at the ground ... we use a concrete paver block we had lying around.






Easy Food Dehydrating & Safe Food Storage

Running the Power Cord to the Indoors

Running the Power
Cord to the Indoors

I run the cord through my window closest to the generator which sits on my wood floor. I don't move the generator from there (though you can easily move it around if you want to!)

It's semi-hidden by a bench that sits to its left, so that it's not visible from the front entry door! (yes that's important to us women) – but it's still easily accessible (so that makes the men happy).




This page covered the outdoor part of setting it up, so please visit: Solar INDOORS to see what needs to be done if you haven't read that page already. Thank you.
