“All of the people we had contact with at Power Trip Energy were excellent, from the initial solar feasibility analysis, to the installation and hook-up, to the back office paperwork and liaison with our local utility, they were all friendly, very capable and efficient and easy to work. They are a great company, and best of all they really believe in what they do. I would highly recommend them to anyone.” -Frank Stowell

We recently added two new SolarWorld arrays to our shop, both seen on the roof in the photo below. The western array is clear-framed, and the eastern array uses the black frames. If you are trying to decide which would look better on your home, perhaps coming here to see both arrays on our shop will help you make this decision.
At a total of 10 kilowatts we are back to making more electricity than we use, even with our two Level II EV charging stations that are becoming more heavily used each month as more people come to take us up on our offer of free energy to recharge your EVs. Even in the month of November our electric bill for our all-electrically heated shop and office was only for the monthly flat access fee, as we push more clean power onto the grid than we use.
The net metering laws only require that the utility compensate us on our bill up to the amount of power we receive, so any electricity we provide above and beyond what we use is a gift to the Jefferson PUD. You are welcome!
We don’t recommend systems larger than needed for our clients, but if you DO want to give away some of your extra clean energy, we can help you do that.
Jay Lazerwitz had us install 3.5 kw of Itek on his studio in Diamond Point, pictured here right after a mountain bike ride together on the trails of the Miller Peninsula, which we rode after I gave him the orientation to his new system. I’m glad to have a new biking buddy and am always eager to try to get in a quick mid-day bombing run on our great local trails. This ride gave Jay the chance to fix a broken chain and successfully finish the ride – way to go MacGyver!
