The motive of the plug and play solar system project was to assess the viability of highly integrated/factory-built solar systems, with the intent to cut the labor (and possibly 'soft costs') costs associated with installation.
Q: What advice would you give to someone new to the community?
No question is stupid. We all had to learn the basics at some point.
Q: Thanks for answering the questions. Any final comment?
The technology at our fingertips today (for example: MCU kits, and highly integrated IoT solutions like the Thunderboard Sense) are providing a tremendous opportunity to address some of the pressing problems the world currently faces. I hope to see more people take advantage of such opportunities.
