Parking garage where I charge at work. Got a pic today of the solar array on the top floor, there are 10 CS-40s on the first floor. I'm thinking the panels have it covered.

Took the pic with my phone, sorry not the best. But who can guess the size of this array? (I know the answer, this is just a quiz for fun)

Wow, large system!

Is it an optical illusion or are the panels installed parallel to the ground?

Oh, I don't know, but looks to be around 100kW maybe more.

I think it is parallel to the ground, but haven't actually been up there yet. I should check it out this week.

Snolter, where do you work? I live in East Sac and have been trying to visualize where that building is (I see our downtown skyline off in the distance).

""That looks like UC Davis Medical Center."

I think you're right. With the photo probably taken from the Shriners Hospital.

Are we right, Snoltor?
