Featured System:

Clark PV system

This month we’re featuring two PV pioneers who make their home in the Berkshires. They started with a 5 kW pole mounted system at the energy efficient home they built for their retirement and then expanded to nearly 10 kW with extra arrays on their garage roof. We wish we could tell the whole story about Pauline and Howard Clark’s service to the environment and the nation but will focus on their dog rescue work . Their electric usage has grown with their Jack Russell terrier rescue work but Pauline reported they reached net zero this summer on their electric bill.

Our customers understand: "Photovoltaics (PV) is a signature technology for the post industrial age, there are no moving parts except those infinitesimals; photons and electrons moving at light speed. In contrast to many electric generation technologies, there is no combustion, no need to contain pressure. No noise, no dynamic vibrations, no lubrication or adjustments are needed. The fuel is abundant and free, there is no waste. With PV's technical sensibility, progressive cultural and ecological benefits attach and together define sustainability. Our customers are clean energy consumers and generators." -Christopher Derby Kilfoyle ©BPVS 2015
