Indianola is a very solar-friendly community. The Kitsap Peninsula averages approximately 3.5 hours of full sun per day. That is about 70% of the sun resources of southern California. This makes grid-tied solar installations very feasible in Indianola. Power Trip Energy has installed a number of solar PV systems in Indianola over the years; here are a few of our latest projects in the area.
Hruska-Orr Residence, 5.36 KW, Indianola, 2013
This home has a metal gabled roof and is equipped with 16 SunPower 3365 watt modules and a SolarEdge 6 KW inverter.
Residence, 7.54 KW, Indianola, 2013
Solarworld 260 modules feed into two PVI 3.6 inverters to produce 7.54 KW of power.
Haug Residence, 3 KW, Indianola, 2009
Kathy and Mel have installed 3 KW of PV on their new home leaving room for an additional 3 KW in the near future. System consists of 15 Sanyo 200 watt modules and a 3000 watt SMA inverter.
Dash Residence, Indianola, 4.45 KW
This system required some creativity to make all of the sub-arrays the same pitch, the upper array is partially pitched up and partially pitched down, bridging two different roof angles to achieve this. Bob Dash has been a very effective voice in favor of grid-tied pv.
