A 7kW ground mount bifacial solar PV array is installed at a house in Westport WI as part of the western Dane County solar group buy. The panels generate electricity from the underside as well, especially with reflectance from snow. Legacy Solar Coop managed the group buy program and Eagle Point Solar designed and installed the system. Wiring is put in a ttrench from the array’s inverter to the house then run to the electric panel and outside meter. The 18 panels were tested and produced 7.2kW of the 7.6kW capacity as soon as the sun came out from a cloud.
