Are there an issues related to Tesla Solar Roof and Open Cell Attic

Hello everyone,

For my house I'm considering changing an HVAC system and as a result thinking about insulating attic by foam, which is a modern suggested way of attic insulation in Texas.
You can see an example of open cell at at around 4 min on this video

I have solar roof on order, it is not installed yet.

As a result I have a question does anyone have open cell design attic and solar roof where solar roof is stalled after the attic was insulated by foam.
I'm curious how the cabling from solar roof is going to work in such attic and if there would be any issues either from attic insulation or solar roof itself.

I thought there might be problem with cabling etc.

If anyone have thoughts regarding this I would greatly appreciate it.
 
I have a truss attic with blown insulation on the floor - one of the "dumb ways" your video guy mentions (interesting video by-the-way).

So no foam, but I thought it might help for you to see how Tesla ran the string connections from the solar roof to the inverter through my attic:

If you had foam in place before the solar roof install, it seems like they would need to punch the flex conduit through the foam and reseal - just a guess.
