DIY Solar – Episode 4 – Sense Monitor Update + Wiring Components

In this video I provide an update for my Sense Home Power Monitoring device. Next, I discuss the components I am using on the input side of the Grid Tie Inverter with Limiter. These components should help to protect my system from any surges coming in from the solar panel side. I also discuss wire and breaker sizing along with how to properly match the solar panels with the inverter.
