What You Need to Know

Description:

Ground system behind my pool. The wiring will go through the ground, then through my basement, and finally the garage where the power is. We will have 21 panels at 385 Watts each for 8.085 kW. The solar panels are Q.Antum Q.Peak Duo L-G5.3.

Other Benefits:

We are a small time farm that practices organics and would like to show we are practicing green energy as well. Plus in 5 years we will no longer have a power bill or a loan.

Maintenance Requirements:

Not sure at this time.

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

We will consider solar tubes next for lighting. Eventually we would like to upgrade our system and go get off of gas appliances. We currently have a gas water heater and gas for heat. We pay about $500 to a $1,000 a year in gas.

My Motivation:

1 - The 30% tax incentive. 2 - My brother recently installed solar. 3 - Solar is the future for energy in my opinion

Advice:

Get a couple quotes. Then get pre-approved for a loan if you can. That will save you a ton of money in the long run. Find someone you are most comfortable with to do the job.

Experience with Installer:

In process. We will try and update once completed.

Additional Notes:

My system is in the early stages. I'll try and update this once it's complete.

Open House Info:

I work from home if you want to see the system when it's complete, just come by. It is on the south side of the house by the pool.
