Thanks for the solar tip, I've been contemplating installing some on the commercial building. I will check them out
Stewart at Solar Electric Supply will offer advice and prepare quotes.

He's also a moto rider.
My system is 10,000 watts to hopefully generate all the power I'll need.
Excess not used during daylight will be "banked" and used a night and during summer when I run my vineyard pump.
You can not get rid of the various "fees" PG&E tacks on every month for meter. lines etc. but I hope to only have about $75/month bill, not the $450 average I have now.
Saving $5K per year will pay for Solar System in 5 years and figuring 20 year life save another $75K if prices do not go up and more if they do.
I went with IronRidge rails
Method of fastening rails to roof depends on roof material.
I used SnapNrack standing seam clamps on my metal roof.
40 REC moldules (panels)
40 Solar Edge Optimizers
2- 5000 watt Solar Edge Inverters
Solar Edge equipment is an upgrade.
All materials delivered to my ranch
You'll need to purchase sub-panel and breakers, A/C disconnect, splice boxes and conduit/wire from modules to subpanel to disconnect to meter.
