Lake Ossie Solar Cottage
October 2 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0
The grid-tied system was self-installed in 2018 using a kit from mysolarpod.com, based in Burnsville, Minnesota.
Our goal was a net-zero cabin with all electric heat and appliances. This system operates our home and charges our electric car. We have eliminated all monthly utility bills except for trash and internet.
The wooded site did not allow for a roof-mounted system on the buildings. The ground mount was simple and allows easy access should any maintenance be required.
The 650 square foot cottage was built to be energy efficient with triple pane windows, tight building envelope, and additional insulation under the concrete slab.
