This page is simply a story-telling photo history of the project supported by short narratives. The most recent photos display first. This page is best viewed with a large display such as a laptop, iPad, etc.
The Home Page also has updates in the Keeping You Informed link.
The remaining work after the May 25th post is wiring, connection to the electrical panel, etc. 
As such, it is not expected that there will be future updates to this page.

A Montage of Various Views of Completed Canopies and Panels

South facing canopy, completed. All done, both canopies.
The basic panel installation is completed. Next week is the wiring, micro inverters, lighting and other steps to complete the canopy installation which is expected to be done by Friday.  After that it's the wiring, conduit, connection to the electrical panel/switchgear. which is mostly work where the visual progress is a challenge to show. Since the remaining installation steps are not all that conducive to photo-story telling, it is not expected there will be future posts to this page.
