Solar Panel Update - angle adjustment / grounded

The solar panel installation is complete. The grounding wires and lightening arrestor were wired today and the angle of the panel was adjusted to soak up more of the sun's energy.

By adjusting the solar panel's angle from the above pic to the pic below, it resulted in a 21% increase in power output, which is where it will remain for the winter. I'm hoping this angle will be significant enough to help any snow buildup sluf off without my assistance.

Below is the addition of the grounding wire and the lightening arrestor and a few more pics of the panel.

Have a great weekend!
