While they unloaded the panels from the trucks they told me that Evergreen Solar, the manufacturer of the panels we're using, is a company out of Massachusetts and their panels are U.S. Made. Also, they told me, the company has a low carbon footprint.
The rainy weather slowed things down a bit, but it's coming along. This is the view from my fabulous neighbor's yard. You can see the panels won't cover the entire roof - we have enough room to add panels later for solar thermal! (Woo!)
I would have waited until later in the day to share photos of how it will look in a few hours, but I'm heading to the hospital to spend time with my dad this afternoon. Hoping he's getting strong enough for surgery soon. Please send good thoughts our way.
