Port Angeles Solar
Port Angeles is an excellent location for solar – and it is one of our busiest locations on the Peninsula. The North Olympic 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 popular in Port Angeles. Power Trip Energy has installed many solar PV systems in PA over the years; here are a few of our latest projects:
We covered the South-East roof of this client home and estimate it to produce over 5,400 kWh on an annual basis. Although this isn’t enough to cover their consumption in total, they were happy to reduce what they pay to their local utility.
We met this client in the spring of 2018 at a local home show, after evaluating their home they installed 24 SunPower AC modules. This will produce approx 60% of their power annually.
These clients were really excited to go solar! We anticipate that this solar array will produce around 70% of their annual consumption.
We installed 30 SunPower 335watt AC Modules on this standing seam metal roof. Working around vents is never easy but even more with skylights. Our installers are great at fitting modules into those in-between spaces.
Rather than racking a system on the flat roof’s available, we were able to install 24 SunPower 335watt AC Modules on the east facing roof. This system will generate about 8,000kWh on an annual basis and helps reduce the amount of energy they need to purchase from their local utility.
This client’s energy usage was lower than most of the same size and appliances and was able to get away with an 8.7kW array to make 100% of their annual usage. We love that the design was kept square and still allowed space for the vent at the top of the array.
This client was so excited to install solar on their home in Port Angeles. They wanted to maximize their return and went with the largest system available for the Washington State Incentive. They have 35 SunPower 335watt AC Modules that will make over 10,000 kWh on an annual basis.
This client was excited to know that we could install on the standing seam roof and eliminate having to penetrate the roof to attach the rail. We were able to use S-5 clamps that clamp onto seam, rather than to the truss of the house. Not all standing seam roofs are the same, we must use the profile of the seam to determine which clamp is best for the project.
