A few things; I had to get a manual controller for my full tracking system, because it did not know when hail or heavy snow was coming and would pancake. I should have used thick aluminum foil EMI/RFI shielding between the inverters and the rest of the house, and put my phone lines further away. I wish that I would have known of the extreme humidity problems in my Earthship/greenhouse.

These things were not mentioned in the Independent Home, Solar Living Sourcebook, or Earthship books.
