Project Description: 

Over a decade has passed from when the Payne’s built their home. Nestled along the tree line they have enjoyed the energy savings from a geothermal system from the day that they moved in. Now, with energy prices rising faster than ever they decided to improve their already efficient home by adding a solar electric system. Located atop of their barn, the Payne’s now produce a significant portion of their energy from the sun and the earth.

Our Challenge: Design a system that will maximize efficiency while keeping the overall aesthetic appeal.

Our Solution: Use a solar specific tilt up kit to position the solar panels at the optimum angle to the sun, use deeper set solar rails to hide and protect all wiring runs, and match the angles of the panels from two different roof lines.
