We installed solar panels to provide virtually all our electricity needs. We are saving money while also caring for the earth by reducing our carbon footprint.

What You Need to Know

Description:

Solar panels were installed on two flat roofs, using non-penetrating racking systems. A ballast system was used on a membrane roof, and a clamping system was used on a standing-seam metal roof.

Other Benefits:

The solar project is a witness to our belief in caring for God's creation

Maintenance Requirements:

Minimal maintenance is expected

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

Lighting upgrades prior to the installation of the solar panels significantly reduced our electricity needs. Older, primarily fluorescent, fixtures were upgraded to more efficient ones.

My Motivation:

Cost savings -- and our commitment as Christians to stewardship of the earth's resources and environment.

Additional Notes:

To facilitate the solar lease, as well as save money, we refinanced an existing loan and changed our insurance coverage.
