Wondering what they are going to knock down from S9+40 to what, nothing or something less than?  

Also wondering if the FCC is kept informed of this?

Your spectrum plots look just like SolarEdge RFI does.

I just met with a SolarEdge engineer.  His contact information is Tefford Reed <Tefford.Reed at solaredge.com>.  They are working on several houses surrounding a ham in Poway, CA (who has S9 +40dB RFI from the new SolarEdge systems that just went in near him).  They plan to correct the SolarEdge installations near me in two weeks.  It is great to finally see some activity from them.  Tefford told me to ask hams with SolarEdge RFI to contact him.

The tarp solution should work. My neighbors SolarEge system goes quiet at night when the panels are inactive. The attached screenshots show the difference between the daytime RFI noise level and the nighttime noise level.
