Our system was installed and turned on in test mode on June 11, 2015, and has beeen producing power since.
As far as I can tell, the system has run without any interruptions except for a couple of hours when the electricians were on the roof installing the permanent fasteners. In the words any engineer likes to hear - 'It Just Works'.
There are dozens of older residential buildings in Victoria with flat, unshaded roofs just as suitable for solar panels as Central Park Strata. If you own a condominium unit in one of these, or the whole rental building - you could do it too.
As planned, our strata Annual General Meeting was on February 25. We had just enough owners and proxies for a quorum under our bylaws - 22. Half of the meeting was quite routine - review of the budget, some small extra expenditures on paint, plumbing, and an asbestos report. The big topic was the Solar on a Strata proposal.
My goal with this blog is to provide a 'road map' for other stratas, so I'm going to go into the details here.
