Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).

 

The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 

 

Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.

OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

My system has been working great. The installation was fast and easy. The crew was very professional and they were happy to answer any questions. The salesman was no pressure and the contract was straight forward.

It is great. There was a problem with one of the panels that we didn't know about, and one of their supervisors came out to check the work after it was done and he sent the whole crew back out to correct it. They worked efficiently, it looks good, and it seems to be working, as our electric bill is extremely low now. We're really happy with them.

was great. He returned calls promptly, answered questions in a way I could understand, took care of all the paperwork for my tax refund. Re: the account with Entergy, he called them and set everything up for me and it was done in a very timely fashion.

Start of work took 2 months. Panels were installed and then it took another month to fix the wiring which included a "keyed" part being force into a connector the wrong way shorting out the system.
That took 5 minutes to fix after waiting a month for the guy to show up.
The generator tie in involved moving breakers to a new box. Rather than replace the existing boxes or anything, just left an empty box on the wall.
To be fair, they went out of business in early 2013 and were just getting back on their feet in June, but I lost #200 of power waiting for bugs they caused to be repaired. No offer to make good on that.
Offered 12 months "free" credit, when I paid cash, no discount.
These are not dishonest people, but I can't recommend them.

They were great. My point of contact was

and he was easy to get in touch with and quite helpful. The installation of panels in a historic district can be a little bit daunting, but Joule was very helpful in working through the process.
There were some holdups with getting Entergy to install a Net-Meter and Joule was very helpful in navigating that process and keeping me updated throughout. I would definitely (and have already) recommend them to a neighbor.

The agent worked with me over the phone looking at the Google Earth imagery to get a sense if the general situation of the trees orientation and roof size. He was honeat with me that the tree cover meant that solar wasnt a good option fir PVE. When I asked about a smaller system just for solar water heating he asked a few more questions and even though the system would fit and work he was again honest with me on the fibancial bemefit just not being there and the payback timeframe was not going to work out based on our estimated usage. What a refreshing experience to hear that they don't think I need their services instead of the hard sell. No service was performed obviously, and we ended up buyong a different house.
