This is a QTech. A QTech is a wireless control system for operating controls remotely. Plan of attack was to install one in our classroom to operate our inverter and the heaters at this time. The other one is to be installed in the SSB building so we can operate the inverter remotely.
Above: Wiring diagrams on the QTech system

Above: Installed QTech and main 230v supply. Also mounting of switches and lamps for the front.
Here is a possible upgrade for mounting to the roof.
Roof Bracket - Corrugated
To fix the roof-mounted system onto a corrugated roof. The interlocking bolt is pre-fitted to the roof bracket with washer and M8 nut. The position of the roof rafters must be taken into account when fixing.
Shockinglybad’s proposal for solar generation for class project
The use of the solar panels at
the moment could be optimized. This can be achieved by increasing production
and the development of a sun positioning system. By the use of actuators to get
better full sun time hours on the panels. Will mean more production as the
panels are energized more of the time. This could include a LDR sensing device
to make the operation automated and reduce the risk of operator error.
This will be accomplished by
fixing the panels to the roof. With one side hinged and the other with an
actuator mounting to move and change the angle of the panels. The use of a LDR
to detect when light is low at roof level it can operate the actuators to
increase angle and sun influence on the panels.
