Default Urbandal Solar rough in

So Urbandale includes a "solar rough-in"

Does anyone know what that consists of?

Is it just a conduit running from the attic to the basement?

With Tartan it was a conduit + a couple of 2x4s between the joists in the attic.

Likely if we were to proceed with some solar power, the 2x4s would have to be knocked out to put in new ones aligned with where the roof panels would go.

Soooo... not worth the $500 we spent.

They used to have something about solar hot water to pre-heat the water.

2 PVC pipes that run from attic to basement ceiling. Not necessarily do they run the pipes to the utility area either, they can be smack dab in the middle of the basement and not that close to the utility area.
