Project Participants:Solar Wind Works
Low Cost Pole-Mount PV addition
Site characteristics or focus during
construction or remodel: Jump thru town of Truckee hoops
Construction Type: 8" sch 80 pole mount, with 10' x 20'
collector on top, approx. 15' above grade
Subjective Evaluation/ design considerations:
The main reason we chose to do this is so when we are 70 years old, we won’t need
to pay a fortune for our electricity. I’m not so interested in my immediate “payback”
as I am interested in lowering my utility bill now. We also have a sunroom on the
south side of the house, in order to help with the heating in the fall and the spring.
