Nifty S. Minneapolis Solar Garage! Vroom!
Our South Minneapolis Homeowner’s garage always took care of the family cars, now their garage is taking care of 90% of the families electricity bill in year one!
And with solar incentives, our Homeowners are receiving approximately $5000.00 in Federal Solar Investment Tax Credits and will receive about $3,853. in Xcel Solar Rewards. This covers in the range of one third or a bit higher of the total cost to purchase and install the entire PV system. Not to mention making a solar home improvement which is nontaxable.
The 3.66 kW garage mounted system is estimated to produce 4,680 kWh of electricty its first year and will be generated by (12) 300 watt PV modules. A Solar Edge Monitoring system was included so our South Minneapolis Homeowners can monitor their solar system’s daily projection in real time.
Pretty geeky stuff!!
The environmental benefits from this garage mounted solar array include the following: producing enough clean energy kW’s to offset the greenhouse gas emissions as burning 3,746 coal lbs. per year, or 115 incandescent lamps switched to LED’s, 8,391 average passenger vehicle miles or as much carbon as sequestered by 2.78 acres of U.S. forests in one year. #ifelonmuskcouldseemenow #moneyisntallthatyouresaving!
