In November 2011 the Whitley’s decided to take control of their energy future and installed a 6.9 kilowatt solar electric array onto their roof. There are thirty 230-watt SunPower panels feeding electricity into a 7,000 watt inverter. The electricity then feeds directly into the home’s load center. Whenever there is more electricity being produced than the home is using, the excess back feeds into the grid and a credit is stored to be used at a later time. This system is expected to produce over 8,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy each year, making sure over 11,000 pounds of CO2 emissions never enter our atmosphere each year!
