Located on a quiet street on Wilmington Island, this homeowner was ready to pull it all together. He wanted to lower his monthly bills and implement back-up power. Not wanting to cut tree branches from over his roof, the homeowner decided to place the array in the area nearest the lake. The free standing 4.5kW grid-tied array has buried power cables running to the house. Final connection ends in the garage connected to the Coastal Solar Power Plant. The Coastal Solar Power Plant will run the refrigerator, ceiling fans and necessary lighting indefinitely during a power outage. This homeowner also utilizes an energy monitor to access his home’s power usage 24/7 online. He can control his thermostat and monitor the home’s power usage from his smart phone! This install was completed in January 2013.
