Originally, anyone who installed solar could...Alex "Solar Girl" Steeleread more

Carrying heavy equipment up and down ladders onto the rooftops of buildings and securing personal fall arrest systems are challenging enough, but solar installers and electricians have other safety considerations to take into account as well.
