"This product is EXACTLY as advertised. Easy to set up and delivers solar power directly into the dedicated circuit. I am planning on buying more as soon as I can afford it. Mouli Engineering has a GREAT product, filling a dire need. Something the homeowner can install once the circuit is ready, with the help of a couple neighbors, in less than an hour. True plug and play simplicity. AWESOME product, high quality, well thought out design! Thanks!!!!!!!!"

"OK, I havent bought this yet,but I have gone to solar school and this package looks awesome. I was surfing e bay for a solar panel when I clicked on an advertisment link at the bottom of the page- I didn't know Northern had this package- I watched the video and I'm very impressed that someone came up with this package,easy install and very resonable price. I'm getting one soon and already picked out a spot in my backyard- Looks like a quality system with Enphase inverters, just plug it in to a 20 amp breaker in your breaker box and start lowering your electric bill-AWESOME -Thanks Northern!"

Question about hail
August 31, 2012
"The solar panels are tested using 1 inch diameter steel balls that are dropped from 8 ft height.
After this drop test, the solar panels should not have any damage.
This is a standard Underwriter Lab test called UL 1703.
The SolarPod uses UL 1703 passed panels. Hails to a size of a golf balls to marginally larger should not be a problem.
It will not hold and stand up to football or soccer ball size hail. While this can be done, the cost for this will make it un-commercial.

How did it go?

"How does this item perform? I have one question: What keeps this device from being destroyed by hail or the neighbor kid's baseball?"
