The list starts with clients who have installed solar electric or Photovoltaic (PV) systems. At the top of the list are those clients whose systems convert DC electricity to AC electricity using an Enphase MicroInverter. These particular applications allow the home owner, us the installers and you the general public (with permission, of course) to view the system’s performance real time.  Click on the system and check out these installations to see for yourself.

The lower list is of clients who have installed solar thermal systems. These systems are more efficient systems than PV systems. They simply collect and transfer the solar thermal energy to a storage tank that is often filled with water.  Water is a very efficient conductor of thermal energy and because it is a fluid it easily transfers the thermal energy from one location to another, called hydronic heating.  Most solar thermal systems are used for heating domestic water. However, the last system is a commercial system that uses the solar energy for heating domestic water as well as heating a dining room through baseboards.
