Due to our long-standing excellent reputation throughout Northern California, we’ve had the opportunity to design and install solar energy systems for a number of homes in Sonoma County. Take a look at this grid-tied, ground-mounted system we designed for a country ranch house in Alexander Valley.
Designing a Solar System for a Country Home
After hearing about the high quality craftsmanship we’ve offered other homeowners in the area, the owner of this Alexander Valley house approached us about designing a solar system for their home. This owner had goals to offset as much electricity consumption as possible while obtaining a high return on investment.
As a country ranch house with a small farm and outbuildings, we knew this project had some unique factors to consider.
The Solution: A Grid-Tied, Ground-Mounted System
After studying property and the homeowner’s historical electricity usage, our design team determined that a 10 kW system would offset the large majority of the homeowner’s energy usage while offering a maximum return on investment. The new system is ground-mounted and is connected to the power grid in order to provide reliable, uninterrupted power.
The Results: Greater Energy Independence & Maximum ROI
This Sonoma County homeowner is thrilled with their new renewable energy system. Thanks to this new system, the homeowner now enjoys significantly greater energy independence and much lower electricity bills. The system replaces the power grid by offsetting more than 80% of electricity usage and is expected to deliver maximum return on investment in the years to come.
