What You Need to Know


16 panel roof-mounted system with a central string inverter.

Other Benefits:

Allows them to power their new hot tub and an electric vehicle and to avoid hitting higher priced energy use tiers to save money.

Maintenance Requirements:

Because their system is a PPA lease arrangement, Sunrun owns the panels and equipment. They monitor the output and are responsible for maintenance and replacing any parts that fail, including the expensive inverter. The Neiers like that someone else is responsible for these aspects of their system and are very satisfied with their solar experience in Santa Cruz.

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

Efficient appliances and drying their clothes outside.

My Motivation:

Energy conscious, but also wanted to save money and to get a hot tub and electric vehicle without hitting higher cost pricing tiers for electricity.
