The Martin house has a concrete tile roof which presented some technical hurdles for solar installation, but in the end the wires were run underneath the tiles for a clean aesthetic look.
The Martins wanted their inverter mounted in the garage for a daily reminder of the money they were saving (85% per month, with a new monthly bill of $7) and for a daily review of their solar production.
