– Off Grid & DHW

 Off Grid PV and DC Direct Thermal DHW Systems In Northern Colorado

This off grid straw bale home, is nestled in the hills of northern colorado. The 2200 Watt Off grid PV system provides electricity to the home.  Custom built well controls allow the cistern to be filled when the sun is shining eliminating the need to run the generator.  A generator back up is integrated with the system to equalize the batteries and to utilize if the batteries become too low.  The Domestic hot water system is DC direct and uses its own PV panel to circulate the pumps.
