We power the house and both cars with the sun.

What You Need to Know


We started with a well insulated passive solar home. So the 33 panels covers over 90% of our use for the home and two plug-in cars.

Other Benefits:

The SunnyBoy SMA inverters allow for 2 1500 watt circuits in the event of the grid being down.

Maintenance Requirements:

None so far.

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

Swapped to all LED lighting and purchased a second plug-in car.

My Motivation:

The environment and long term savings.


Just do it.

Open House Info:

People are welcome to stop by Sunday afternoon October 25th between 2 and 5 for an up close look and for any questions.
