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.
