In late 2015, we had the pleasure of working with Yvette Meunier and Tom Gilbert on the installation of a 7.7kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system at their home in Topsham. The system was sized to offset their existing electrical consumption and a portion of the additional electircal consumption resulting from the installation of a new mini-split heat pump.
Rather than install the heat pump last year, the couple waited to accumulate credits in the summer of 2016 before moving forward with the installation of a multi-zone heat pump. The system utilizes a single outdoor unit, a wall-mounted indoor unit in their study, and a floor-mounted indoor unit in their living room. This system is rated for outdoor temperatures of -15F and will significantly reduce their existing heating loads.
