After waiting over 3 years since placing my order, I finally had 2 Tesla Powerwalls installed to provide battery backup to my system on November 9, 2020
On January 25, 2021, at 3:30 AM, we heard a loud BOOM on the roof. The next day I discovered that one of the Trina panels was shattered with a hole right through it.
I later found on the roof a bullet that had made that hole. Some fool had stupidly shot a gun into the air during the night. What goes up, must come down.
Three weeks later, I had the panel replaced. My original panels are no longer available, so I had to settle for a black S-Energy model of nearly the same size. Ugh!

Don’t we have sufficient deserts and rooftops to finally break our addiction to fossil fools?
