Tucked in between I-295 and US-1 in Topsham is a unique housing community that includes a nature preserve, golf course, restaurant, fitness facilities, and several other amenities. Situated on 635 acres, Highland Green attracts residents who value the outdoors.
Many of the residents of Highland Green have opted to further complement this environmental ethic by installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on their home. We recently installed a 6.84 kilowatt grid-tied PV system comprised of twenty-four (24) REC Twin Peak 280W modules for owners of one of Highland Green’s custom homes.
This project introduced a unique consideration during the sales process. The neighbors to the south of the home were concerned that the neighboring roof-mounted solar array might reflect sunlight into their living room. The couple had flown over some large-scale solar farms and seen the glare of the reflection from their view through the plane’s window. We prepared a visual representation for the neighbors to illustrate that the reflection from the neighbor’s solar array would be far above the top of their roof at its lowest point
