Black Solar Site
Solar panels with micro-inverters (all black, deemed attractive by neighbors) originally sized to meet 100% of electric needs, now provide approx. 50% as new electric air-source heat pumps produce spring/fall heating and summer cooling. This reduces home heating oil use and allows for draw down on $5000 Hingham Municipal Light Plant (HMLP)credit for the solar installation. EV charging set for off peak hours gets $10/month credit from HMLP. Payback for both solar panels and heat pumps expected within 10 years.
