The Richard Home
Gail Richard knew it was time to make the switch to solar. She wanted to power her entire house on solar, and reduce as much of her carbon footprint as possible. All Energy Solar used all of the available space on two separate roof sections, and now the electric company is paying for the excess power produced by the Richard residence. Gail now has the option to upgrade appliances to new efficient electric ones and reduce the amount of fossil fuels used even more!
The Payne Residence
Over a decade has passed from when the Payne’s built their home. Nestled along the tree line they have enjoyed the energy savings from a geothermal system from the day that they moved in. Now, with energy prices rising faster than ever they decided to improve their already efficient home by adding a solar electric system. Located atop of their barn, the Payne’s now produce a significant portion of their energy from the sun and the earth.
Their presence is felt in libraries across the United States and internationally in Canada, South Africa and the far East. Their commitment to improving literacy around the world shines through and now with their new solar system installed high atop their Minneapolis, Minnesota building headquarters, they can show their commitment for the environment as well.
