Solar Open House May 2009
A solar power project completed this week in New Hampshire – clean energy is ready to go!

Join us May 21st from 6-7:30pm for a Solar Open House Event!

This event will be located at 12 October Farm Lane in Cumberland, Maine 04021.

The homeowners have Apricus evacuated tube collectors installed on their south facing roof. There is an 80 gallon Stiebel Eltron tank being heated by the 44 tube collector array. This system is to provide solar heated water for the domestic hot water load with back up coming from a cast iron oil boiler.

This solar hot water system is expected to produce a 60-70 degree temperature rise in the tank providing most of the households domestic hot water needs in the spring, summer, and fall.

The backup boiler will supplement as necessary to ensure a consistent supply of hot water. This system will produce 8-10 million BTU’s of clean renewable energy and eliminate over 4200 lbs of CO2 each year.

The solar open house is a chance for people to view the solar designs used in this home and mingle with the homeowner as well as a ReVision Energy representative to talk about the feasibility of solar.

The event is free and all are welcome. Please meet at 12 October Farm Lane in Cumberland at 6pm May 21st if interested. Call 221-6342 with questions.
