Reed & Roth Array
The Reed and Roth array at their farm in Middlefield MA is rated at a nominal 5.04 kW using SolarWorld modules and matched micro inverters. The slightly different pitches make this array optimally efficient over the course of the suns’ path through the year. It was installed a year ago this March and has produced all their electricity needs, just as predicted. What a pleasure to see Cathy and Vicki recently at the Four Freedoms Coalition March in Pittsfield. True citizen activists , they have always been conservation minded too and have done pioneering work in agriculture: spreading the word on PV water pumping , helping Community Supported Farms stay viable and raising one of the most beautiful and serene animals you’ll ever want to meet , the Icelandic horse.
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 2017
