Technology: Photovoltaics 9 kW; Solar Thermal 6 4x10 Collectors

The Riedels began planning their timber frame home in 2000 to be energy independent by using passive solar design, solar photovoltaics (PV) and solar thermal technologies. After extensive research, they relied on information for orienting the building towards the south for maximum sun exposure, insulation, ventilation, shading, daylighting, and heating.

With the help of Third Sun Solar & Wind Power, they designed a free-standing 9 kW PV system to supplement the home’s electricity needs along with a closed-loop solar thermal system for a radiant floor heating system and domestic hot water system.

The PV system is grid-tied and the Riedels have a net metering agreement with FirstEnergy, which credits their utility bill for any excess energy generated onsite.
