Solar Hot Water Collectors Getting Full Sun Exposure

A Solar Open House event is a great opportunity to view a home with an active solar installation offsetting energy consumed by the power of the sun! All of our open houses are free to the public; wine and cheese are even provided! You will be able to view the components of the system, hear from the homeowner what it’s like to live with these systems, and ask questions in a casual and fun atmosphere. A ReVision Energy representative will be on site to answer technical questions, talk about cost and available incentives.

Kittery Open House; July 9th 6-7:30pm

Please come July 9th to 8 Devons Wood Drive in Kittery, Maine 03905 to view this beautifully constructed new home utilizing solar hot water panels to meet their domestic hot water demands. This home has two 20 tube solar hot water evacuated tube collectors on the south facing roof to heat an 80 gallon solar storage tank. The tank is connected to the propane boiler, which serves as the back up to the system. For times when the solar is not able to keep up with the demand, or in the winter months when there is not enough solar gain, the back up comes on to ensure a consistent supply of hot water at the tank.

These home owners installed necessary wiring when building their home so that adding solar electric panels would be easy and accessible when they were ready.

Come meet the homeowners to learn the processes they took to building their energy efficient home. We will be meeting at 8 Devon Woods Road in Kittery at 6pm.
