We’ve signed an agreement with SustainableVT to add an 8kw solar system to the farmhouse of This Wonderful Place. Taraleigh and I believe strongly in reducing our carbon footprint. This step will produce enough electricity to cover 100% of our usage. On top of that we sized the system to cover 75% of our heating by adding electric heat pumps. This will reduce our oil usage by at least 75%. Our goal is to have the smallest carbon footprint possible. We’ve all ready added LED lighting to every fixture in the house as well as changed our hot water heater to a hybrid heat pump which will also be powered from the solar panels.
We’ll give an update when the installation is complete. If you have questions please comment below.
