As I understand it, the foam is only required when it's a "+X". They have a footnote in the code that says it must be continuous. There is no such note for the floor so I assume that means you can...

I had calculated an average ~25kWh per day from a 10kW array in Jan for OF. Sounds like that'd be pretty off for that week. Definitely would have to boost output for off-grid based on weekly...
