What You Need to Know

Maintenance Requirements:

None so far (5 years)

My Motivation:

Desire to have cost-effective net zero energy home that will save $165,000 in energy costs over 20 years. The PV sysem is one of three components. The other two are an open loop geothermal heat pump system and 10 kW wind turbine which combined generate 19,000+ kWh per year which is enough for heating, AC, hot water, all electrical systems PLUS 18,000 miles per year driving of my electric car.

Advice:

PV systems are cheaper now than when mine was installed 5 years ago. GO FOR IT!
