Our solar system is a 16.5kw solar system with 50 -Panasonic HIT 330 watt panels has been running for almost a year now. 24 panels on our ground mount, 8 panels on our pole barn roof, and 18 panels on our garage. Our ground mount is a 28 module top pole mount. Manufactured by MT Solar. This top pole mount can be tilt adjusted for proper seasonal angle.
We have not had an electric bill since February. From March through August we have got a refund check from Excel energy.
We run a beekeeping business and sell honey. We do use a higher amount of electricity compared to an average home.

A ground mount system was added in 2019.

Our solar system was installed by All Energy Solar in 2018.

What is a solar open house?
