Mellon Patch

October 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-5

Free

We had a grid tied 5640 Watt roof mounted PV system installed in 2012. In January of 2021 we added a 4800 watt pole mounted PV array that tracks the sun by moving from east to west automatically every day and includes variable pitch adjustments to optimize seasonal production. We installed the new system ourselves with a little help from our local electrician. The components for the new system were purchased from Solar Time Tracker LLC.
Both systems use Micro inverters. Our home is about 1200 sq ft and has earth berms on the west and north sides. It includes a passive solar sunroom addition which we added in 1995. We have also added a split mini heat pump that provides both heating and cooling.

This Solar Site will be an outside only Tour.
