Adding 6 more solar panels to make electricity

I purchased a Nissan Leaf 100% electric car, and I needed to add six more solar panels to my
existing 24 panel system that was installed in 2001 to power my home. I decided to mount the six 230 watt panels to a simple wooden frame, which was made from 2 x 10s and is about 19 feet long. All the work was completed on the ground and I hauled the two sections up to the roof and completed the work. All the panels make 100% of my house and car needs for electricity.
