What You Need to Know

Description:

The Barclay-Ledvina Dream Farm (http://DreamFarm.org), a retrofit of a 1980-built home, boasts multiple efficiency measures (cellulose in attic, targeted polyurethane spray foam, low-infiltration e-coated windows, high efficiency appliances and bulbs), a solar hot water system (81 sq ft. of Heliodyne Gobi collectors in external closed loop), wood space heating (Encore Wood Burning Stove by Vermont Castings-one of the lowest emissions wood stoves in the industry), and a solar-electric tracking array (grid-tied 3.2 kW array of sixteen Sanyo HIP-200 watt modules mounted on a Wattsun AZ-225 tracker). Our solar-electric system generates over 5 megawatt-hours per year--more electricity than our home uses on an annual basis.
