PV Workshop 4.7 kW
October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022
The PV system was installed and commissioned in Jan 2019 by Home Energy Optimization. It is installed on an existing workshop building with a metal roof. The power feeds thru the workshop sub panel to the main service panel at the house. It is a grid tied net meter system with Rappahannock Electric Coop.
To date, the 4.7 kW system has generated 18,500 kWh, average yearly value of $800, or about 75% of the household electric load. The payback is 11 years with a 8.15% ROI yearly.
HEO is currently working on a 7.4 kW ground mount net meter system. The owners’ plan calls for adding another 7.4 kW array in the near future to handle EV charging. The plan is to electrify everything with Solar.
