Sussex County Solar Tour
Three solar homes in Sussex County, New Jersey demonstrate how three families employed different methods while trying to achieve net zero energy use. In addition a locally owned community solar system is depicted (Sussex Solar Gardens LLC)..
Four separate videos describe ground mounted solar, roof mounted solar, solar thermal, passive solar, and electric vehicles at these homes, plus the community solar system which provides off-site solar energy for one of the homes (Helios Passive Solar home).. This home includes an EV charging station for the owner’s Chevy Bolt EV.
Since the videos were created one of the homes (Bill Gold Home) has added two Tesla PowerWalls for energy storage and back up during power outages, and bill charges his Hyundai Ioniq 5 at home.
