Thank You to all who replied to my question about solar panel noise.  I hope to 
meet with my neighbor in the coming days.

It sounds like the installation is fairly close to your antennas so it 
shouldn't be hard to track down with an HF portable. The noise is likely to 
come on in the morning when the system becomes active and then disappear at 
night when it becomes dormant.
If it is your neighbors solar panels, politely ask them for the name of the 
installer and system manufacturer. Notify both companies and let them know when 
you first noticed the noise; have dates and times ready. The day you noticed 
the noise is likely to coincide with the day they completed the installation.
Be aware that during the day, the solar panels and their related components 
will continue to generate noise with the inverter turned off so the system 
doesn't have to be online to generate noise. Keep that in mind if they tell you 
it hasn't been activated yet.
Good luck.
