Additional info:

  • Do you have any shading issues?: I have a little shade in late fall from a maple tree.
    my roof faces 173 deg.
  • Are you looking for premium products, or low cost?: I am looking for a good system at a fair price.
  • How much solar are you thinking? I use on average 11500 KW. Our utility uses net metering and will not a system that will produce more than the house uses.

One of my concerns is corrosion. We have a lot of salt in the air because we are right on the Atlantic Ocean.

Thank you for helping sort through solar quotes.

Hi @Ednjanet

I would personally go for the LG and Enphase option. LG Neon 2 panels are some of the best panels on the market and have a very high salt corrosion resistance rating.
Also, Enphase has a good track record for durability in high salt mist environments.

Thanks for the feedback and info. I am going to go with the LG setup and clean my panel spring and fall.

Hi. Just discovered, & joined, this forum this morning. In in Eastern end of PEI.

I, too, went with LG 410W panels & IQ7+ microinverters. My system was commissioned last year & is working well.

There’s a great online tool to see other users’ installed systems. Check out powerlily.io. My system is on there.

Nice, I’ve been frustrated by how hard it’s been to explore system on the enlighten platform itself.
