Last big push for 'Net-Zero'.

What You Need to Know


16 collectors (almost 600 sq ft of collection surface), 1250 gallon storage tank, radiant floor loops for space heating. This system is a ground mounted 'Drainback' system with no glycol requirement. Cannot overheat or freeze during seasonal diversity or vacations, etc.

Other Benefits:

Radiant floor heating is the most comfortable and efficient way to heat homes here in the northeast. Using the sun as the power-plant to generate the Btu's, just takes this to the next level!

Maintenance Requirements:

Annual system inspection and add water that may have evaporated.

My Motivation:

Over the past 5 years we have reduced our utility power purchased to less than 25% of what it was. We could have put in more solar electric to address this last portion, but solar pv would have required a larger electrical main service panel than the home has to accommodate the expansion.

Experience with Installer:

Steve Cuzziere of GoGreen has been fantastic, taking on this project was nothing new in scope, scale or requirement for his firm.

Additional Notes:

Final pricing, rebate(s), tax credits, annual savings not calculated at this time.
