Matland/Farmer PV Install
Linda Farmer and Kim Matland are building their Net Zero Energy home in Ashfield and to start they have completed their garage...smart planning with their excellent General Contractor, Seaver & Sons of Charlemont. Their new 8 kW PV array is ready to supply the construction energy needed. To date on their new utility service to the site they have used 34 kilowatt hours from the grid...very soon that will be offset by the PV production credits and all future energy needs supplied by the sun.
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 2012
