Solar Energy Case Studies and Testimonials - Projects Past and Present
Grid-Tied Solar Energy Photovoltaic System Barry Schmidt
The home site is situated on a number of acres and is located in a canyon on the north facing slope with pines and oak trees in the steepest areas. Not all of the property had full sun throughout the year, but the array location had good afternoon exposure.
Off Grid Residential Solar Power Case Study Vicki Reid
The site is located in Descanso, California, just east of San Diego. The site is in a small valley and at an elevation of about 3,000 feet. The site sees high summer temperatures of over 100 degrees and winter temperatures in the low 30s. The home had a roof that was oriented perfectly for southern exposure and was an ideal platform for the solar array.
Commercial Off-Grid Solar Energy System Case Study Mono Lake
The site is located at Mono Lake, California. This is an extremely remote and harsh environment. Summer temperatures extend into the high 80s and in the winter the temperatures can go into the low 20s and winds can gust to 100 + mph. These winds blow an acidic combination of sand and lake salts onto the site. Accessing the site required the use of ATVs and tracked vehicles due to the sand dunes and the soft blowing sand conditions. The existing solar system that was in place at the site showed signs of extensive abrasion on the modules from blowing sand. All electrical equipment had fine dust intrusion and was failing due to the harsh conditions.
Off Grid Residential Solar Power Case Study Vic Cooper
The site is located in Big Sur, California about one mile from the closest utility power pole. The property islocated on very steep terrain at 1800 feet above the Pacific Ocean with numerous scrub oaks on site. Although the majority of the property is steep, it does receive good southern exposure with no obstructions.
Apex Solar Testimonials
We were very much satisfied. I thought the job was professionally done. The components he picked out seemed to work well together. We’re still in construction and haven’t moved into our house so I don’t know about the sizing, but he did a thorough job of asking questions about our electricity use and how we would use the system.
