Solar Panels Video series

This is a post to collect all the quick Instagram videos I’ve been making as I geek out about Solar Panels. I can’t expect people to watch them in order, so I thought I should collect them all here.


First, here is VREC installing the panels. I really should add some music, don’t you think?

How big is the solar array? It’s true, I don’t carry this number around in my head, but the answer turns out to be 8.8kW! That’s a lot of power!

Did I leave you with questions? The best places to ask are on my Instagram or Youtube accounts. I don’t check these comments often.

Recently I have finally gotten the doo-hickey that reports how much power the panels are generating at any given time, so I’ll be able to report more about that fun stuff.

For now, I hope you are looking into your local candidates for the municipal elections and finding those who are taking the Climate Emergency seriously. Here in Maple Ridge, the incumbent Mayor and Council have conflicting priorities which means really no progress has been made in the last 4 years. So disappointing!

See you next time!
