    maybe a blanket over the panels with a hook/bracketed thick piece of plywood would be better than standing directly on the panels.

    blanket would tend to slide?, unless you mean to hook to the upper edge of the panel?

    used between the hooked/bracketed plywood and the panels. it wont slide with the pressure of the tech's weight on top

    I was super nervous to stand on them, but I'm a pretty little guy and as you can see in the pic I'm staying on the supported joints between the panels. It was a pain and I was scared of dropping something, but i didn't have any plywood.

    sometimes stepping back (from the situation) is the better thing to do. yes, it'll cost the customer more, but your liability may be far reduced.

    I want to put some on my house. Just for the heck of it. Don't think I could recoup my money even doing it myself but I still want a few

    I would have pulled the clips off of 2-3 panels and moved them to the side. Then again I have installed several solar systems tho.
