Carving Out a Place for Solar

The 9.89-kW solar photovoltaic system located on the roof of this custom millwork shop in Thompson is expected to generate approximately 80 percent of the electricity required by the facility over the course of a year.  In fact, during the summer months, the system will actually produce more power than the company needs, sending the excess back into the power grid.

 

Installed in late 2008 by Alteris Renewables, the solar array at B.H. Davis Company includes 43 solar panels.  These panels were installed at a low mounting angle so that they would not be visible from the street level, leaving the appearance of the company’s historic building undisturbed by the modern alteration. 

 

The B.H. Davis Company is an excellent example of a small business that has wisely turned to solar energy technology to help control its energy costs.  The company’s solar array is a great reminder of the power of solar and will benefit both the company and the community for years to come.
