I am environmentally responsible and had solar panels installed when I built my house in 2007. I have been pleased with the system and the significant savings in my gas bill. I also enjoy explaining to guests how the system works and encouraging them to consider installing solar hot water and heating systems.

This historic landmarked residence in Ukrainian Village was just renovated with passive solar features, EV charger, 2 native rain gardens, rain collecting systems, chicken coop, apiary, and is pursuing a GreenStar Gold certification. The PV system was installed this year as part of a broader state-of-the-art sustainability retrofit while the solar thermal domestic hot water system has been operational for 11 years.

We understood that the primary way to have a sustainable affordable home was to take advantage of the sun. We have retrofitted an 1875 house and incorporated passive design plus an active solar thermal that is integrated with our domestic hot water plus a radiant heating and cooling DOAS, additionally it also supplements the geo-exchange field. Furthermore our home office is operated off-grid through a small PV array.

Restaurants use a great deal of hot water and adding our Solar Thermal panels were extremely cost effective, paying themselves off in approximately 4 years. The Green Restaurant Association estimated that our panels provide us with 10% of our overall energy needs.
