Brackets

Today it was the turn of the brackets for the solar panel to arrive. It's amazing how exciting you can find the presence in the post of four pieces of stainless steel and a few nuts and bolts.


They'll fit neatly on top of the magnets that arrived yesterday, allowing for adjustment in the positioning. It will lift the panel up neatly to clear the curvature of Erin Mae's roof and provide some ventilation underneath, though it might need just a bit of extra packing.


We'll have to experiment, once everything has arrived, to see which of the panel's mounting holes the four brackets should be attached to, to give the best stability. I think we should be able to fit them so that the magnets are largely out of sight and away from feet, underneath the panel.

Progress! And today I've had an email promising more goodies tomorrow.
