A homeowner in Mt. Airy, NC had Yes! install a 4.8 kilowatt PV system using 20 REC panels of 240 watts each, with an Aurora inverter. Although there was little shading on his roof, he was surrounded by trees that were home to some rebellious squirrels. Squirrels love the taste of PV wire, and they can do surprising damage. Most installations do not need this extra step, but in this case we recommended critter guards to insure against the “Squirrel Apocalypse”.
