I'm working on the final details for a remodel of a 2 story 1912 bungalow. At some point in the future I would like install some solar panels on the roof. During the remodel the exterior walls around where the electrical panel is located will be open and I will have access to run any needed wiring or conduits from the roof location where the panels will be installed to the electrical panel. I'm not planning to have the panels installed during the remodel since I have some other energy efficiency items I need address first (attic ventilation, insulation etc.). The panels will be installed at some future date.
What would you suggest be done while I'm in construction in order to be ready for when I finally get around to the panel installs? My thoughts were to just run an empty electrical conduit (1"?). Any other thoughts? The necessary electrical components will be in the basement under the area being remodeled.
